Get in, Loser, we're recapping 'Mean Girls!' Donny unblocks everyone's favorite "basic bitch historian," Jenna Barclay, for the week to discuss the Lindsay Lohan classic. While nobody should be learning anything fresh about this movie in the year 2022, Donny is learning new things about poppers; the (recreational?) drug may be new to Donny, but this movie is not, as he's a three-time "Mean Girls"...

It ain’t ova, b*tch.” But Donny’s career in podcasting is, as he will ultimately be cancelled for his accent work and acting choices during this “Save the Last Dance” recap with Kendrick Tucker of “Reality and Comics Too” podcast.  The dark (in more ways than one) opening makes Chelsea realize why she left sleepovers early, and her passion for Julia Stiles’ pullout couch makes Donny realize he doesn’t want to sleepover at her hous...

Idiots actually are all around, and Jen (Instagram’s @blocked_by_jax) discovers that quickly when she helps Donny and Chelsea recap “Love Actually” in honor of Christmas in July. The three realize that the movie does not hold up - at all - and Chelsea realizes that characters that don’t speak still need someone to write for them and judges Donny for being on “a lot” of cruises. Then, Donny and Jen get in a fight over Ashley Tis...

When "Easy A" was picked as this week's movie, Donny and Chelsea knew right away who they wanted to cover it with. Enter Nava and Sophie, co-hosts of "Podcrushed," the podcast where Penn Badgley reads your middle school story. What Sophie and Nava didn't realize, though, is that if they are the "scholarly" nostalgia podcast, "I Am The Cute One" is the equivalent of walking into a monkey's...

Staying on brand, Donny and Chelsea are the people what they didn't ask for: a rewatch of the "7th Heaven" pilot! Not much goes on in terms of plot (how did this show get picked up?), but there are pregnant dogs, dying grandmas, thin slim tampons, and a french kiss between siblings. Wait, what?

It's a menagerie this week as Donny and Chelsea are joined by Melissa Beck of "The Real World: New Orleans" to discuss one of her top two movies (and it's not number two), "Welcome to the Dollhouse."

What better way to end Chelchella 2022 than by recapping “The Witches,” the movie that defined Chelsea’s personality and inspired her tramp stamp, with Dara Laine Sussman of Les Deux You Remember This? Roald Dahl’s books are for little freaks, and Donny, Chelsea, and Dara prove they fit right in with their stories of hamster haircuts, parakeet mating rituals, British mice, and Philadelphia’s Disney vault. The trio also perform an i...

After begging to come back on the the podcast, Imani Marcus (Mixing With Mani) joins Donny and Chelsea to celebrate with her favorite straight woman, Elle Woods.  Although Chelsea cut all of Donny’s references to the “Legally Blonde” musical, he still has plenty to say, starting with a deep dive into the font used in the movie’s opening credits. Meanwhile, Chelsea explains getting Luke’d, and it’s clear that she  and Donny don’t us...

Jinkies! Donny is on the case of Chelsea not liking the live action Scooby Doo movie, and it appears this week's guest, Jamie of @milennial_misery, is her accomplice. As Donny tries to get them to see the error of their ways (he almost succeeds), Chelsea and Jamie disgust him by bonding over their love of South Park instead. Then, Chelsea pulls a Luna Ghost and terrifies Donny and Jamie by recounting one of her vacations to...

While it would have made sense to talk about "Saved" for their Easter episode, Donny and Chelsea aren't necessarily known for making sense, so they're covering the next most religious movie they could think of - "Coyote Ugly," and they have Peter and Chloe of @iamthirtyaf to assist! They can't fight the moonlight, but they CAN discuss their first cell phones, Tyra's never-ending ability to be unh...
