EP. 141 — Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind

This week, Paul & Amy can’t forget 2004’s mind-melting romance Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind! They learn why director Michel Gondry asked Jim Carrey not to improvise, discuss the charm of practical affects, dish on a character cut from the film, and ask if this couple is really meant to be together. Plus: learn which rap superstar was heavily inspired by the movie!

 

This is the fifth episode in our Couple Goals series; next week’s film is Love And Basketball!
