Season 3 is here! We're ranking EVERY Reese Witherspoon film!

About Girl Crush

Girl Crush Podcast is a movie review podcast hosted by best friends Anne & Ally. They celebrate women in film by choosing an actress & reviewing/ranking all of her films. Season 1 was a deep dive into everything Jennifer Aniston, Season 2 covers all things Sandra Bullock, and season 3 is Reese Witherspoon! Anne & Ally have watched ALL 39 Jen movies and ALL 48 Sandy B movies, and ALL 41 Reese movies making them the true experts on each actress's film portfolio.

Each movie is rated on 5 categories:

  • Plot: 10 points
  • Character: 10 points
  • Acting: 10 points
  • Would You Watch Again: 5 points
  • Bonus Category: Jen- Hair, Sandy- Boss Babe, Reese-Whiskey Tea Cups (aka sass): 2 points 

These scores add up to a total number of points, leading to a ranking of the movies from best to worst. A new episode is released every Tuesday, where Ally & Anne go through one movie, talk through their ratings, and reveal the ranking. They sprinkle in their own anecdotes, quips, and theories.

 

ABOUT THE HOSTS:

Anne & Ally met when they were both part of the same a cappella group at the University of Illinois, Girls Next Door. They quickly became best friends, roommates multiple times, and have always dreamed of creating some sort of venture together.

HOW IT BEGAN:

This all started in 2018, when Ally saw a Marie Claire article that had a “definitive” ranking of Jennifer Aniston movies & texted it to Anne. They disagreed with the list & decided they wanted to make their own that truly compared every single movie. And so began the #YearofJen, a proposal by Anne to watch every single Jennifer Aniston movie in 2019 and rank them all, based on a scoring system they created. Their initial goal was to release their own article with a definitive ranking.

After spending a significant amount of time watching movies and talking with their friends about the rankings, Ally’s husband Kale convinced Ally & Anne to start a podcast. They were in luck, given Kale’s career in audio engineering. And so, with their best friendship, their love for Jennifer Aniston, and a newly purchased microphone, Girl Crush Podcast was born!
