Episode 17.- Is Wine Country A Bad Movie, or We Just Expected Bridesmaid 2.0?

Episode 17.- Is Wine Country A Bad Movie, or We Just Expected Bridesmaid 2.0?

On this episode of Kickin' & Streamin' Podcast, we're joined once more by Jocelyn's bestie Penny Donelson as we review the Netflix Original movie Wine Country, produced, written, starred and directed by SNL alumn Amy Poehler. The discussion goes into the the cast as we marvel at the absolute cohesion among the actresses in the movie. Jocelyn & Graham dedicate a few minutes to talk about the premise of the movie versus what everybody seems to expect nowadays from every all-female cast movie since Bridesmaids. Penny confesses to not have seen the movie, but was expecting it to be within the realm of raunchy Bridesmaids-like type of humor. We talked about Tina Fey's scene-stealing cameos and we were all left wanting to see more of her every time she made an appearance in the movie. We further discuss how each character brought a certain real life-like quality to the movie based on their own personal issues and how they confide to their closest friends. We agreed the movie is a celebration of friendship and the ability to accept and love our lifelong friend with all of their virtues and imperfections.
