It would seem that this Valentine’s Day timed romantic comedy, starring Alison Brie, Rebel Wilson, Dakota Johnson, and Leslie Mann is angling to be an anti-romantic comedy, a deconstructionist romantic comedy, if you will. And it is…sort of. Until it falls into the same traps it’s decrying. At least that’s what our reviewers are saying. Those reviewers being, Elliott, and appearing for the first time on our website, his lovely and learned better half Stacee. We figured, who better to review a romantic film for Valentine’s Day than a couple (also, I couldn’t get anyone else to go). JC and Chris show up to ask the questions.

Born in the wilds of northern Virginia, in 1992 Chris managed to put all of his survival skills to use and barely escaped with his life to Austin Texas, where ever since he’s dabbled in everything from plumber’s assistant to sandwich maker, from band to bar management. An opportunity to see theatrical release films for free, by becoming a critic on a local public access show called “The Reel Deal”, turned into a full time job when Chris and his friends decided to take it to the internet. They built the site Spill.com, adding multiple podcasts and animated features, to no small amount of success. During this time, a fortuitous friendship sprung up between Chris and young Brian Salisbury, who was also a local film critic, and they merged their forces of will, and their laundry list of ideas for shows, to eventually build this paradise you see before you.
