Nathan Rabin's Happy Cast #35: Post-Valentine's Day Valentine's Day Anti-Romantic Comedy Special (with Todd Strauss-Schulson)


With February taking its final bow, it’s our last chance to celebrate the fun and foibles of the romantic comedy with Todd Strauss-Schulson’s delightful Isn’t It Romantic - and Strauss-Schulson comes along for the ride as a guest!

Together, we chat about what makes romantic comedies work and not work, how his Rebel Wilson vehicle upends those tropes, and what sets it apart from other high-concept rom-coms like David Wain’s They Came Together and Amy Schumer’s I Feel Pretty. It’s a delightful conversation, so grab some chocolates and rose petals and give it a listen!
