It's a February special on The Wait for It Podcast, and we're all about the laughs and love as we unravel the genre of romantic comedies, starting with this gem that's very close to PhilTheFilipino's heart. From its true-to-life narrative to the cultural complexities it so eloquently portrays, "The Big Sick" offers a distinct take on a genre often criticized for its predictability.

As we continue our journey, we turn the spotlight on the authenticity of romantic comedies, and how they shape our expectations of love and relationships. We draw parallels between the fantastical and the realistic, and discuss how other movies like "Forgetting Sarah Marshall" straddle that fine line. Delving into what makes a rom-com stand out, we consider the evolving landscape of the genre, and how films that resonate with us tend to offer a slice of relatable life amidst the idealism often presented on screen.

Wrapping up our heart-filled episode, we share a preview of our watchlist, packed with diverse titles that promise to keep the conversation lively and insightful. From the comedic darkness in "The Big Sick" to the impact of the Apatow era on rom-coms, we cover it all. So, whether you're a hopeless romantic or a comedy aficionado, join us, Phil and Eric, on this engaging expedition through the delightful world of rom-coms.

IMDb Synopsis:  Pakistan-born comedian Kumail Nanjiani and grad student Emily Gardner fall in love but struggle as their cultures clash. When Emily contracts a mysterious illness, Kumail finds himself forced to face her feisty parents, his family's expectations, and his true feelings.

Welcome to your go-to source for entertainment. Wait for it.

Gaming. Wait for it. Anime Plus Ultra.

Speaker 1:

Mr Eric Almighty and Phil the Filipino.

Speaker 2:

Yeah, they've got you covered and all you gotta do is Wait for it. Hey everyone, welcome back to the Wait for it podcast. I am your co-host, phil Smith, aka Phil the Filipino, and joining me, as always, is your other co-host, mr Eric. Almighty and Eric, we made it through the month of January and we are here in February where traditionally we like to talk about one of our favorite Well, I know one of my favorite I think one of your like sub-favorite genres of film, and that is the rom-com. You know, last year we had a lot of fun doing a up high, down low Alright Pee to that series with our friends from Game of Thrones and we did up high, down low rom-coms, and that is where this movie has previously appeared on this podcast. And, eric, we've been trying some different things here on this series where we have been watching Shows or movies that one of us has seen in the past. You know, we did Goodfellas last year, which was a big deal for me, and while this film isn't as high on my list as Goodfellas, it is one of my favorite rom-coms of all time as it did find itself on my up high portion. So I am excited to see how your experience went, as we are about seven years yeah, six, seven years removed from when this movie came out, and I think it's a film that has stood the test of time when it comes to rom-coms, so I'm excited to have this conversation with you today.

Speaker 1:

Yeah, I mean I'm overdue for watching this. This is one of those movies that you talk about a lot, and maybe not like all the time. But, like whenever we talk about favorite movies, the big sick has come up in conversation, so it made a lot of sense. And you know it's February, it's the time for love. You know, some of us find love and some of us, like Phil, stay alone forever. So for you I can understand why rom-coms are like kind of like that, just like that nice movie to dig into and enjoy, because it's like complete fantasy to you.

Speaker 2:

You know, maybe one day I'll find my coma girl Eric, and maybe she is out there right now.

Speaker 1:

I'll see you one day, I'll sleep.

Speaker 2:

And I just it'll just be my time eventually, but while I just let you verbally abuse me there, I am excited to talk about this film because, like you said, it's a movie that's very near and dear to my heart. I think it's got excellent writing, it's got excellent characters and it's based on a true story, and one of my favorite comedians slash actors in Comell Nanjiani. So we're going to jump right into this. We don't expect this episode to be too too long. Again, eric watched it for the first time. I actually saw it in theaters when it came out, all the way back in 2017. I remember I was actually living in Dallas at the time when this movie came out, saw it with some friends and was immediately obsessed with it. I remember back then even having like a Twitter interaction with Comell Nanjiani while he was doing like a AMA on Twitter. So that's you know. That's one of those memories that I always think about as well. So, eric, this was your first time around watching this film. Before I asked you what your thoughts were on it, I'll give you guys a little quick synopsis here from IMDB. Pakistan born comedian Comell Nanjiani and grad student Emily Gardner fall in love but struggle as their cultures clash. When Emily contracts a mysterious illness, comell finds himself forced to face her feisty parents, his family's expectations and his true feelings. So, eric, other than what I had told you about this film, you know where had it existed, kind of in your rom-coms like guys? Were you relatively familiar with it outside what I have told you, or was it pretty much all word of mouth for me?

Speaker 1:

Honestly, it was a mixture of the two. I'd probably lean a little bit more to the word of mouth from you, but I've definitely heard a lot of good things. One thing I knew about this movie was that critics received it and, like really thought highly of it. For the most part, I don't really see a lot of tearing down of this movie, and maybe it has to do with the subject matter, like at the end of the day, I mean, this is, if I'm correct, phil based on their actual relationship that he has with his wife. So it's an interesting premise, an interesting story, and I feel like it's got all the elements that you would want. It has some twists, though, that I did not know, that was not spoiled for me on how this really is a rom-com. So I'm kind of excited to talk to you about that, because there's some elements here I just didn't see coming, despite hearing that it was a good film.

Speaker 2:

Yeah, like you said, written by Kumail Nanjiani and Emily Gordon. So this is a basically a retelling of how they met and all of these you know actual, you know a lot of these things you know really did happen to them, especially when it comes to Emily. And you know, very early into their courtship she became ill and she was put into this medically induced coma and I remember kind of the media cycle as this was going on and just hearing these two talk about this story and how excited they were to bring it to life. Because, yeah, I mean I think a rom-com is a relatively easy formula when it comes down to it. I mean, a lot of our like our favorite rom-coms aren't necessarily too convoluted, but also our favorites are ones that have like throw huge wrenches into them, like the one what are your favorites from last year which I'm blanking on with Steve Carell and Ryan Gosling, you know has that epic moment.

Speaker 1:

Oh, and of course it's like crazy, stupid love.

Speaker 2:

Crazy, stupid love, you know, has that amazing twist in it and, like you said, the big sick is definitely it's not a surface level rom-com because of what happens in here, because of the cultural things that are going on in this film, and I think that's just what makes it so incredibly charming to me. It's got a lot of really dark humor in it. The joke you've probably seen the most make rounds there's probably two is the one where they're in the cafeteria and also I'm getting a little head of myself but Holly Hunter, ray Romano, outstanding in this. Oddly enough, this is probably my favorite Ray Romano performance because I wasn't a big fan of his show. I'm sure he wouldn't be happy to hear that, but that's just how I felt because I was never a big everybody loves Raymond fan.

Speaker 1:

But they're excellent. You also don't have, like any real strong family ties at all.

Speaker 2:

Love like these things that you don't experience, it feels like you're, we're like pivoting to this where you can, just, you're just attacking me personally.

Speaker 1:

No, I just you know, you just call it a spade is a spade, you got to call it out sometimes.

Speaker 2:

We're not going to never mind. We're not going to talk about your family dynamic when we're talking about mine, we're just going to leave that where it is. But a lot of really, really great moments here, aside from you know the some of the quote unquote, typical romcom stuff, but I mean culturally how these two navigate their relationship, and then again when Holly Hunter and Ray Romano are introduced I really love. So, eric, just kind of walk me through your experience as you're going through this film for the first time.

Speaker 1:

Yeah. So obviously I knew in advance that you know the big sick is about two people who fall in love and one of them get pretty sick, right, I didn't know it was a coma though. So you know this movie starts off like a traditional romcom, essentially both Kumeil and then Zoe Kazan, who plays Emily instant chemistry Off the bat, which is important because they don't get a lot of time To spend together before things kind of spiral out of control. Obviously you know we're talking full spoilers for this movie. I could relate to the party just running down the line. They break up cultural you know thing that's happening there and then she gets sick and he gets involved in fill. This is kind of where I wanted to pause for a discussion point because it starts off like a standard rom-com. But you know what I didn't expect out of this movie was there to be Rom-com elements with both of the parents, both Holly Hunter and Ray Romana's characters. Not that he fell in love with them, but like it was a love story of them growing to love him and that was such an important thing for that familial dynamic. I just thought that was really interesting and probably my favorite part of the movie that I didn't see coming. How did you feel about that, and is that one of your favorite parts?

Speaker 2:

Yeah, because not only are they again getting to know Kumail, but they're also kind of going through something themselves, and that's not something that Emily is really privy to. She doesn't really know that it is going on. So we get to see them kind of navigate this through Kumail, which leads to really hilarious moments as well. He's just so uncomfortable going through all of this. So, yeah, like you said, the building of the relationship not only between Kumail and the parents, but also them navigating this new part of their life where you know, one of them is fucked up, like Ray Romano has messed up, and she knows it. You know she knows that things are different and they're a little off. But them going through this kind, you know, they literally trauma bond. They're literally trauma bonding over what is happening right now and to see them all navigated. I think another funny moment is when they go to the comedy club with him. I thought that was really great. So a lot of excellent moments in here and, I think, just really really beautiful moments in the mundane that really make this stand out.

Speaker 1:

Yeah, I agree with that and the movie does tackle, you know, those interesting subject matters Like, as we're dealing with this. He's obviously lying to his family and shout out to Zanobia Shroff, who is the mother in Miss Marvel it was great to see her here. Much different mother, for sure. Yeah, not as supportive at times at all, which, again, something that you can relate to. No one's supporting you. So I think this movie just like has your name written all over it and I think that I get it, like I understand why you enjoy it so much as a lot of interesting elements and we then move into, you know, kind of skipping ahead a little bit towards. Towards the end she gets better, but they don't just let that sit and be like oh you, you know, you stayed for me, she's like this whole thing that you experience wasn't with me, you know, and you get to kind of see her play that out in her own head and you know how they both react to it. So just a very interesting, you know, dynamic before eventually, as all rom-coms do, they do end up getting together with a nice scene at the end of the movie. So I just think from start to finish it was very well made. I do have some gripes with it, but for the most part I mean outstanding.

Speaker 2:

Yeah, you know, and that's another thing where, like with rom-coms, it's so difficult, is there? Most of them are so unbelievable, like some of the most of the things that happen in those films are just absolutely ridiculous and would never happen in real life. I mean, I'll take the most recent example with anybody but you, the Sydney Sweeney and Glenn I was about to say Glenn Close. It's definitely not Glenn Close, although that'd be interesting movie. I'd watch that rom-com with Glenn Close and Sydney Sweeney but Glenn Powell so many ridiculous moments and just over the top. But that's also what a lot of people expect from a rom-com. So, again, with this being real life and them telling this real life story, they're allowed to live in those moments where it's like not everybody has an immediate happy ending and that's certainly something like in the moment you're like, you're kind of heartbroken over Because, again, he had all these moments where he bonded with his, with her parents and, you know, really got to know them and probably just expected her to like wake up and then just kind of pick up where they left off, and that's just not where you know what happened. She doesn't know about anything that happened while she was out, you know, and that's again, I think, a very reasonable way to react to this. So, again, I think it's a film that finds the very, very special moments and the moments that are a little bit boring but again also very grounded. So yeah, and you know, Phil, I'd be curious.

Speaker 1:

you know this isn't one of your top rom-coms, like it's up there, but it's not like forgetting Sarah Marshall which, if I remember correctly, is like in your top five right Films that you've ever watched.

Speaker 2:

Yeah, it was my number one. Yeah, oh, you mean number one. Rom-coms Number one. It's like number five in my top five.

Speaker 1:

I know surprises people, but I love that movie so much.

Speaker 2:

Well, and again.

Speaker 1:

Speaks to the difference in rom-com levels that we have. Like, I can enjoy a rom-com, you enjoy them a little bit Again, too much, but I digress. We have dive deep into your psyche as to why that may be the case. I want to ask you did that? We didn't do anything, that was just you. Well, I just thought we should bring the audience in on a personal level. We didn't have to do that, no, we didn't have to.

Speaker 2:

Well, I don't know why you're putting up this facade.

Speaker 1:

This is part of the problem. This is why you're alone. So I just, I just want to move on, if you'll let me, and ask was there anything from this movie that stopped it from being like a top, top tier Romcom for you or just film in general? And then you know I've got a couple of things to throw in there, but I'd just be curious what you have, being the romcom guy, was there any tropes or anything in the movie that you just like, didn't? You weren't thrown with?

Speaker 2:

No, I would say probably when I am watching a romcom, even though like I just I'm going to juxtapose, juxtapose myself, like you do, watch them for those moments where you like, maybe I can, you know, sweep someone off of the scene and, you know, sweep someone off their feet and and take a helicopter to the front of the Sydney Opera House and meet them. That's what happens to anybody. But you, by the way, just say, guys, maybe that moment can happen to me. So again, I think in the in the fact that, like in a movie, like a forgetting Sarah Marshall, jason Seale can end up with Mila Kunis after a weekend in Hawaii, you know, stuff like that, I think just a difference, it really just kind of depends on what kind of romcom you want to watch. Like, do you want to watch the over the top this would never happen in real life or do you want to watch something a little bit more grounded? So I think it really just kind of depends on the mood that I am in. I'm also forgetting Sarah Marshall does, even though, oddly enough, I think, for getting Sarah Marshall also a Judd Apatow produced film. So they are able to. You know it's this is that era, that Apatow era which we have now moved on from. But you know, it kind of shows that like, while they were putting these movies out you know, the I Love you Mands, the Forgetting Sarah Marshalls, this kind of film like that really was a really solid age for rom-coms. I think we are heading back to that a little bit. We are seeing a lot more of them, which I think is good. We need these kind of like really corny movies and that are just fun and have people that have good chemistry, and more actors and actresses want to make them. So I think that's that's a good sign. So I think it really just depends on the kind of mood that I am in. If I want like middle school, high school comedy, all watch and I Love you man or Forgetting Sarah Marshall I'm in front of one something that's a little bit darker but also still fun then you know I'll put in the big sick.

Speaker 1:

Yeah, I mean that makes a lot of sense, just falls in line with what I kind of already figured for you. You might be I don't know about surprise to hear this. I'm glad you mentioned Judd Apatow. I'm not exactly sure what it is, but I could kind of tell that he produced, he had some hand in this movie. I'm not the biggest Judd Apatow fan when it comes to his films and I tried to look into the director to see if there was like anything that stood out. Michael Showalter directed this film. The movie that he's most known for, according to IMDB, is Wet, hot American Summer, so not, oh, not what you want to see. And I see those two things because, stylistically, in the way the film is shot, it's pretty subpar, it's pretty average. One of the things that bother me the most film this movie is really dark, and not dark in the sense that heavy subject matter. Lighting like this movie is dark. They're usually having conversations in the dark. The lighting is dark the only time a comedy clubs. Yeah, they're in comedy clubs. The only time it's ever really bright is in the hospital, and I don't know if that's a stylistic choice. Maybe there's something. If I watch a YouTube video explaining it, there's a reason. One is light and one is dark, but for me as a just watching it, it was a little off putting. So again, something about the styling choices is probably the biggest takeaway, but there also was a couple of pacing issues. I think this movie is maybe 15 to 20 minutes longer than it needs to be and I don't know if that's a hot take. And you know Kumail is hilarious. Some of the comedy things were cool and you know some of them were just OK, Like it's, it's just. Nothing really stood out as spectacular outside of the story Great story and performances but like it felt like there was some substance missing from the rest of the film itself.

Speaker 2:

Yeah, and you know what, and I kind of tried to find if there were any like YouTube documentaries on this film, and there really aren't. The only thing I'm really able to find were like interviews that him and his wife have done. So there really isn't too much as far as like deep dives into this movie, and that could have been a stylistic choice. I'm not really sure I can just speak to it. Also, you know, the other reason this movie speaks to me is it's stand up comedy element. You know this was this came out right in the middle of my stand up comedy era and my stand up journey. So a lot of this stuff I am totally what's the word I'm looking for. I'm, you know, 100 percent living in these moments where they're in a comedy club and they're messing around with with friends and, you know, having total meltdowns on stage, like all that stuff is our things that I've experienced with with other comics. So that's another reason this film has really resonated with me for so long. So you know that definitely helped out quite a bit. So, yeah, I guess those are those. I mean it would make sense that you know like the hospital may be represented, represented, represented. You know, something like like a beacon of hope. You know, waiting for her to hopefully come out of that coma and then whether and as opposed to when he went back to the comedy club and you know thinking about that's where they met and whatnot. Who knows what happened there, but I'd be interested to see if, like some other darker comedies, have you ever seen Funny People, the Adam Sandler and Seth Rogen movie.

Speaker 1:

That's a Judd Apatow film Again. I usually stay away from Judd Apatow films.

Speaker 2:

I'm going to be honest with you, which is interesting because, like we quote the shit out of super bad. But looking at the rest of these as well, you like Bridesmaids. I think that's an Apatow, an Apatow movie but you don't like Bridesmaids Like I like Bridesmaids. This is 40. That's a. That's a dark comedy.

Speaker 1:

I like Bridesmaid in the sense that I watched it and it wasn't bad Like. I don't like, I would never actively put that movie back on again.

Speaker 2:

Oh, I mean, I love Bridesmaids. I think it's one of the one of the better more one of the better modern comedies.

Speaker 1:

Yeah, I am in the, you know, in the minority for that, I am aware.

Speaker 2:

Pineapple Express Did we? I felt like when it came out we quoted that a lot, but like since then we've never wanted to go back. Never watched Pineapple Express. No stepbrothers is is one walk hard. You know, the Dewey Cox story Never watched. That, knocked up, is one. I think we probably quoted a lot trying to think back, but Superbad is really the the biggest one that I see on this list. But I mean, out of all of them, this one is definitely, definitely my favorite. I think it's. I mean it's two hours long. I think it's just the right amount of length in terms of fitting in probably what they, what they wanted to in terms of you know, their actual story. But I can definitely understand those, those gripes, how, no matter how nitpicky they may be.

Speaker 1:

Yeah, and again it comes down to that, Phil, like a little bit of nitpicking. This is a good movie. If I was to rate it to solid three, three out of five on Letterboxed is what what I would give this movie, and upon a rewatch, maybe I like it enough to give it a three and a half. I mean for that drive through scene alone which you had show me before. No, I just put four pieces of cheese on a book. It's just you and me, man, we can't do that?

Speaker 2:

Who's just we?

Speaker 1:

man so good, so good.

Speaker 2:

I've all wanted to have a breakdown in the McDonald's drive through with three in the morning.

Speaker 1:

I love how they're just kind of talking it out at the drive through window.

Speaker 2:

Yeah, like yeah, I'm sorry man. I want to price you know, I'll take four fries. Yes, yeah.

Speaker 1:

So it's again a good film, very, very good film. Maybe three and a half I don't see me ever really going higher than that but it's late to the party for a reason. Guys, this is a movie that people love, especially in that romcom space. Phil's talked a little bit about that. If you haven't seen it, I would totally recommend it for you to make your own opinion on the movie. And yeah, phil, I mean that's pretty much all that we've got. If you kind of want to talk maybe a little bit about how it was received, just to kind of end on that note, I think that'd be a great place for us to kind of wrap up.

Speaker 2:

Yeah, and for those of you that are curious, it is a four and a half on Letterbox for me because, again, it's one of my favorite comedies, romcoms of all time. Again, I think it really just depends on your level of relatability to the movie, but overall I think it's no less than a three, even if you're just solely going into it and watching it as a rom-com in a comedy 98% on Rotten Tomatoes and 88% audience score. So, like you said, eric, critics really, really loved this movie and it makes sense. You know Camille and Emily, like they are, they're kind of like one of them. You know what I mean. Like they are, they're writers, they're comics. You know they kind of fit into that whole the community that is out there. I know it was also nominated for an Oscar. I'm trying to remember which, which one it was nominated for. If it was, I mean it would make more, most sense if it was Best Comedy. What is the other name for? Like the real name for the Oscars?

Speaker 1:

The Academy Awards and it was Best Original, oh, best Original Screenplay, so yeah it was nominated, did not win, but still.

Speaker 2:

I mean, a nomination for a comedy is a pretty tall task, you know, so that's pretty impressive. And then it was nominated for a bunch of other things as well in that year. So really, really great film. It is available on Amazon Prime. It's still free, right, eric? Because it is an Amazon movie, so I assume it's still available for free.

Speaker 1:

at Prime it is free, but if you have Prime they're going to do limited ads on you, so you've got to look into that.

Speaker 2:

Well, they just started doing that.

Speaker 1:

Yeah, I literally was like what are these Amazon ads at the beginning of the movie and I was like, oh no. So I'm looking into that now because yeah, it's like an extra three dollars.

Speaker 2:

Yeah, you want to upgrade it.

Speaker 1:

That can't happen, because I do occasionally watch stuff on Prime. I don't watch it often, but I'm literally watching.

Speaker 2:

We're going to have to.

Speaker 1:

Mr and Mrs Smith just came out, so Mr and Mrs Smith, and I don't know if you know this, Phil, but while we're in Ocala I'm going to watch has been Hotel. I don't know if you know what that is, but is that?

Speaker 2:

the animated show. Yes, I've been wanting to watch that.

Speaker 1:

I've been wanting to watch that, Honestly we might just do a viewing party then, because my brother and sister both agreed to watch it. Yeah, no, I want to watch it too.

Speaker 2:

I don't know if you remember, a couple of weeks ago I shared a story in Instagram post about our lovely governor here in Florida. I won't say anything more about him, but I played a song from that show and it was by Keith David.

Speaker 1:

Oh, loser baby, Baby. You lose, God damn baby, so good.

Speaker 2:

But I was like I got to check out the show. I think I saw it on a what culture list or something. So yeah, I'm down to check.

Speaker 1:

We're going to talk more has been Hotel after this and then we're going to in the in the post show which we'll talk about, where you could find that. But yeah, I'm excited to check that out. So prime, hey, limited ads, I get it, but hopefully it's not too much more to skip past that, because I don't want it.

Speaker 2:

Yeah, so that is available there with minimal ads, or if you pay an extra three dollars, you can avoid the ads altogether. Again, if anything, watch. You know a romcom that is a little bit out of your comfort zone. You know a dark comedy, but really, really great performances. Obviously, both of us recommend it and yeah, eric, I'm glad you finally got to check it out. As we check more movies off of my list, we need to find something that's on your list. I don't think we've done one of your movies yet. For me, as far as like something that I haven't seen that I can think of, right, we did Goodfellows and we've done this.

Speaker 1:

Yeah, yeah.

Speaker 2:

So we find something off your list.

Speaker 1:

I've got a couple.

Speaker 2:

We talked about the not going to watch Rockadoodle.

Speaker 1:

OK, well, I'll just erase that. We talked about Mitchell versus the machines. I've talked about Skyfall as a James Bond film. I feel like that's interesting for you to check out, potentially. And then you know, we kind of flirted with Mad Max Fury Road, which I've seen and I do enjoy overall, but you might watch because you want to see Furiosa. So just a couple of films to kind of keep your eye on. Honestly, phil, this is the first year of doing this series and I guess really the first full year now, so it better be this way. But I have like a full year's worth of content here for us to go into. So if there's something you guys want us to check out, we can add it to the list. That's what makes this series so great it's really never ending. There's always something you missed and we are sometimes late to the party.

Speaker 2:

Yeah, sorry we didn't watch Interstellar right away. Some people were mad about that. It's a shame.

Speaker 1:

Fantastic film.

Speaker 2:

It's incredible, it's great. And then I found a like brand new copy of it at Goodwill the other day so I got to buy it and on Blu-ray for like a dollar. So look how the universe works. That was. It was me like on the other side of the Goodwill, like there it is, buy it. I was looking at a stellar so fantastic. But, guys, if you want to know what else we were late to the party to.

But if you find yourself wanting to maybe reach into your pockets and support the show a little bit extra, while also joining a really great community, eric will let you know how you can do that.

Speaker 1:

Yeah, so we're building a great community on places like Discord for free, where you can join in now. But if you want to go that extra mile, like Phil said, you can become a supporter of the show directly through our bus sprout page. Or if you want to get some perks, like our patrons Stefan and Briar, head on over to our Patreon where you can go ahead and get behind the scenes, exclusive looks and early access to episodes like this one. But those likes, those comments, those shares, those are the free things you can do and we truly, truly appreciate them. If you're into romcoms, international feature comes next week and it's gonna be a film called High Nana. Yeah, I think. I think Phil picked so shocking and he picked the last one. So we're off to a hell of a new year. Hope you guys are gonna stick with us the entire time and we'd love to hear from you at any of our social media platforms. But that is the end of our episode.
