Ep. #2-She’s So Lovely

On this week’s episode we discuss 1997’s SHE’S SO LOVELY, a romantic comedy featuring a hard-drinking, chain-smoking, and very pregnant Robin Wright Penn, with Sean Penn and John Travolta as the two men who just might be crazy enough to fall in love with her. Emphasis on the crazy. Did we mention this film features sexual assault in the first five minutes? And that this was billed as a comedy? We break down how it only takes “journeyman” director Nick Cassavetes (The Other Woman, The Notebook) 95 minutes to desecrate his father John’s legacy.
