Sleepover Cinema

Sleepover Cinema

Welcome to Sleepover Cinema, where we analyze the films that created the collective unconscious of the girls, gays, and theys of the late 90s and early 2000s. Hosted by sister filmmaking duo Hannah and Audrey Leach, also known as Too Pink Pictures, Sleepover Cinema is an exploration of the movies that first inspired their love for film— classics like Aquamarine, Cheetah Girls, and Cinderella (the one with Brandy in it, obviously)— aimed at answering the question… are these movies actually good? And at the end of the day, is that what really matters?... Show More

2006’s “She’s The Man” starring Amanda Bynes (and loosely based on Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night) has all the things we normally look for in a Sleepover Cinema classic: but is this movie the understated exploration of queer identity that we want it to be?

2004’s “Sleepover” is a movie Hannah and Audrey utterly missed out on as tweens, and what a shame. A critically-misunderstood movie ceaselessly packed with clichés, hijinks, and cute boys, “Sleepover” is, according to the Leach sisters, a loving perspective from the female gaze in a culture stacked against it.  For more details on this episode, go to www.evergreenpodcasts.com/sleepover-cinema!

2006’s “Aquamarine.” Where do we begin? While on the surface a simple movie about two best friends and a mermaid, this one is an inspiration. A vision. A fount of creative energy. Starring faves the legendary JoJo and our king Jake McDorman, we saved this one for last for a reason.  For more details on this episode, go to www.evergreenpodcasts.com/sleepover-cinema!

2001’s “Josie and the Pussycats” suffered from a classic case of misaligned marketing— and while this movie was certainly NOT made for kids, the impact that it made on the generation of girls, gays, and theys that DID find this movie is immeasurable. Sara and Jenna of the podcast Name 3 Songs join Hannah and Audrey to unpack how this film inspired their journeys within the music industry.  If you want to hear our upcoming episode o...

2007’s "Bratz” and 2008’s “The Clique” SHOULD have been huge hits, considering that they were products of some of the most popular intellectual properties of our youth. While that was NOT the case, Hannah and Audrey are here to put these two tales of pretty-girl cliques in the ring against each other and DEFINITELY decide which one is still worth watching.

2003’s “The Lizzie McGuire Movie” was a HUGE deal to tweens all over the world. Who didn’t want to see their favorite everywoman swept into a highly-fantastical scenario involving Italian pop stars, couture, AND being the center of attention… and all at age 14? Melissa and Mia of YouthCulture2000 join us to discuss and dissect a movie that is truly what dreams are made of.  For more details on this episode, go to www.evergreenpodca...

2006 was clearly a time full of growing pains for women in pop culture. Shows like "The Simple Life" and "The Girls Next Door," foundational texts for the bimbos of today, were creating a reactionary wave of "feminist" criticism, and for our purposes, that manifested in the form of two ENTIRELY SEPARATE tween-targeted movies centering around the rich and spoiled sisters getting their comeuppance— "Cow Be...

2004’s “The Princess Diaries 2: The Royal Engagement” is one of the most polarizing sequels in the tween movie canon— featuring baby Chris Pine, painful jokes about a wooden leg, and an only-somewhat justifiable autotuned duet between Dame Julie Andrews and Raven Symoné, there’s a lot to talk about. Including, importantly... does this movie measure up to the rules of a good sequel?  For more details on this episode, go to www.everg...

2005’s “Ice Princess,” best known to Hannah and Audrey for its iconic line “there must be an exact aerodynamic formula,” has lived on in the annals of our unconscious minds since we first saw it. With lots of visible breath in cold air, plenty of Zamboni shots, and of course, GREAT sparkling leotards, does this movie live up to the ladies’ memories?

In 2000’s cult classic “Life Size" starring Lindsay Lohan and Tyra Banks, we were surprised to rediscover under-discussed successful witchcraft, visible traumatization of an eleven-year-old girl, and a shocking amount of sexual harassment… was this movie even intended for children!? Who decided that it was?! Hannah and Audrey discuss. For more details on this episode, go to www.evergreenpodcasts.com/sleepover-cinema! Follow Too...

UGH, MOM, YOU’RE RUINING MY LIFE! 2003’s Freaky Friday starring Jamie Lee Curtis, Lindsay Lohan, and Chad Michael Murray has everything: the female-fronted band of your dreams, a middle-aged makeover montage, and genuinely compelling chemistry between a teen heartthrob and someone old enough to be his mother. How does it hold up in 2020? Hannah and Audrey discuss.  For more details on this episode, go to www.evergreenpodcasts.com/s...

What do two all-American tweens do the city of lights? Diplomatically finesse a revamp of the aqueduct system of Paris, apparently. 1999's Passport to Paris starring none other than Mary Kate & Ashley Olsen is a somewhat deep cut that gives you everything you want— matching outfits, swordfighting with baguettes, and a plot totally dependent on a lack of cell phones. . .

2004's A Cinderella Story is a movie that ultra-permeated the consciousness of Hannah and Audrey's childhood. It's a true Moment for Hilary Duff's career— and a truly inexplicable one for the career of Jennifer Coolidge— but does it stand the test of time? Short answer... no. But listen to hear more! Here's a link to the video essay Audrey refers to about Hilary Duff playing the same character in every m...

2003’s The Cheetah Girls marked the beginning of the iconic Disney Channel movie musical era— one that Hannah and Audrey grew up in the thick of.

2005’s The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants is *that* movie that really made one feel mature when they finally got to watch it. Featuring an offscreen hookup with a camp counselor, terminal illness in suburbia, a Grecian vacation, AND an emotional breakdown in a bridal shop, there’s drama aplenty in this one… and we, obviously, love it.

2004's Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen has everything one could ever want: fantasy sequences, high school drama club casting beef, impeccable costumes, AND a mean girl played by Megan Fox.
