Royal Wedding Watch 2018 continues with something comparable to really bad deja vu. As a follow-up to watching Hallmark's William and Catherine, we decided to watch Lifetime's William and Kate. Basically, we took one for the team and watched the same movie twice. As a bonus, Michelle recaps two additional royal-themed Hallmark movies, Royal Hearts and Royal Matchmaker.
We are just under 2 months away from the Royal Wedding, 2018 edition so Michelle and Stephanie watched the made for TV movie about Wills and Kate. No, not the popular one. The crappy one Hallmark made in 2011. Also, witness the worst casting for Princess Diana ever caught on film. Also, Jean Smart from Designing Women plays Camilla Parker Bowles and Victor Garber plays prince Charles. We can't make this shit up. It's William and Cate : A Royal Romance.
You asked. We Answered. We watched the 2016 remake of Mother May I Sleep With Danger, starring James Franco, Tori Spelling and a bunch of emo teens. This movie had like 97% more blood and 100% more My Chemical Romance knock off tunes. We didn't hate it. And sometimes thats the best review we can give.
This movie is about as far as you can get from our normal fare. We were joined by Ollie Brady from the Best Acquaintances podcast to talk about the movie Detonator. Or Death Train. The movie so nice, they named it twice. This film stars Patrick Stewart, Pierce Brosnan, Christopher Lee and the dude who played Buffalo Bill in Silence of the Lambs. It also stars a death train. Ya'll, this movie has like, 200% more explosions than we've ever seen on Lifemark

Welcome to the first of what feels like an endless installment of Meghan Markle movies. Kicking of Markle season is Dater's Handbook from Hallmark. This movie has just enough mini-golf to keep us interested for a good 20 or 30 minutes. Also a middle aged woman who loves REO Speedwagon so we get a glimpse of what Steph will be like in about 15 years. We also get to hear Michelle swoon over Ted Bundy. As if this movie wasn't weird enough.
Did you miss when we watched A Christmas Prince? Have no fear because this movie is EXACTLY the same. Its A Royal Winter from Hallmark. Michelle and Steph talk about a new, much more royal adjacent rating system for these movies. Also there's a PSA about why your souvenir hat shouldn't matter when you find yourself in an alley with a stranger.
We are going back to our roots with this 1999 Lifetime classic, Ultimate Deception. It stars Yasmine Bleeth and Richard Greco and a whole lot of over the top acting. Stephanie is so very very into it. Plus we learn about the time that Michelle's grandparents turned a crib into a bar
