Love the concept, but the interaction is sometimes cringey and Rafer’s aimless soliloquies are a turn-off for me.

I love everything about this podcast. It’s so easy to listen to and the advice is really good, as are the movie and show recommendations. Kristen and Rafer are generous in their way of thinking and are so spot on with recommendations. Perfect listen if you’re looking for something easy and...Read full review »

Kristen and Rafer have taught me that there is a purpose for everything I’ve ever watched—whether it’s to teach me a main character teaching a valuable lesson, a tertiary character modeling a near-unnoticed behavior, or maybe the movie is really good for just putting you to sleep when you really...Read full review »

There are many podcasts I listen to when falling asleep, but this is one of the few I will save until I know I have an hour to sit back and savour it. Kristen and Rafer have such great chemistry, and their advice and movie/tv recommendations always hit the spot. Thank you for the great podcast,...Read full review »

This is like the grilled cheese of podcasts, it’s always what I want, it’s always good and I can’t imagine anyone not liking it.

Ditto to Danica ‘79, what a great letter, conveys what most of us feel about the show! And, like you I think it’s our Wonder Years Mathematician...what phenomenal books that girl has written! Perfect for students & adults...

Rafer and Kristen are a great duo! They may not be therapists but listening to them is therapeutic. I have found many fun movies and tv shows to entertain me and lighten heavy times.
BecAS369 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/06/21
and I’m a therapist. Their advice is good and I have not heard anything that makes me cringe or gasp in horror. I love hearing about their viewing choices for each situation. They are thoughtful and at times surprising.

I absolutely adore this podcast. It’s smart, funny, and helps me decide on good content to consume in a world full of too many options for bad entertainment! The hosts are excellent and really know a wide range of wonderful TV and movie recommendations. The show helps highlight real struggles...Read full review »

I was listening to another podcast where Kristin was a guest and decided to give this one a try…and I have no regrets. I really love everything about this podcast - the theme song, the advice and of course the movie/tv recommendations. I’m now going back to listen to old episodes.

I listened to this show enough I wrote in, but when they read my letter on the show, I was was so hurt by their treatment of it, I couldn’t listen anymore.

Kristen and Rafer go very well together. If this show had a patreon, I would happily go with it. Thanks so much you guys for doing this show.
runningjudy45 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/16/21
I really love this podcast! The only reason I didn’t give 5 stars is they sometimes tell TOO much of a plot and give away surprises. These 2 have given me an entire list of shows and movies I’ve never head of, and can’t wait to watch.
DOPTG via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/08/21
I missed you guys! I got to follow this really warm and funny duo when they were doing Movie Date podcast. Even if they had moved on to do other great projets, my weekends and movie choices were not as fun and surprising without their astute advice. I love that you’ve taken a segment of the old...Read full review »

Kristen and Rafer, although they always clarify that they are not actually certified therapists, do have quite a bit of valuable wisdom to share as well as just general solid, good life advice. Their banter and friendship is a joy to listen to, and their amazing senses of humor keep me laughing,...Read full review »

I stumbled upon this podcast and I’m glad I did. The hosts have just the right amount of humor, banter and great suggestions. The movies and TV they have introduced me to have entertained and enlightened me.
Counter crazy via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/19/21
I love this podcast! I’ve devoured nearly every episode, have followed many of their recommendations and have been delighted every. single.time! Their chemistry is off the charts. It’s obvious they like, love and respect each other, even when they don’t agree on something. They actually model how...Read full review »

I love listening to Movie Therapy with Rafer and Kristen. I listen to it while I’m going for a walk or driving in my car. I take notes of all the movies and TV shows that they recommend and love it when I hear them talk about one of my favorite movies.The advice they give is right on the mark!
Mimi to 8 grandchildren via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/06/21
Rafer and Kristen are just great, it feels like they’re my friends already, and the movie recommendations (and the advice too!) are consistently great.
hdjsnfheb7438274) via Apple Podcasts · Italy · 06/04/21
I listen to Kristen’s other podcast “By the Book” cohosting with Jolenta, which I love. but Movie Therapy gives me something else that has been the perfect mixture of fun and healing in the lonely times of a pandemic. I moved to NYC not knowing anyone just a few months before the pandemic hit....Read full review »

I’ve been binging this podcast and my Watchlist is bursting at the seams! Rafer and Kristen havesuch a great rapport, and it’s especially fun when they disagree on advice or on movies.

I discovered this show recently and am making my way through the whole back catalogue. It is both inspiring and comforting.

I have been a fan of Kristen Meinzer from by the book and we love you (and so can you). It is fun to see her dynamic with Rafer and how that is different than her dynamic with Jolenta on the other two podcasts. It is just right the level of lightness that I have been needing over the past year. I...Read full review »

VickiHam911 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 05/03/21
This podcast is my comfort food. Rafer and Kristin are both such kind and thoughtful people who give great advice and even better movie recommendations. No better antidote to the year we’ve been through then their soothing voices making me smile and giving me something awesome to watch. Never stop!
TASR gamer via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/02/21
Kristen and Rafer give the kindest, most empathetic advice. And they pair it with a movie! Love this podcast. Definitely one of my all time favs!
Erin Pedals via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/26/21
As a working mom with a 1 and 3 year old, the hours between 7-9PM are sacred. Thank you for recommending excellent movies, so I don’t have to waste time or brain cells picking them myself. In addition the advice is rock solid, candid and full of empathy. The hosts are gems, and I could listen...Read full review »

Rafer: when it comes to mental health, there is no such thing as “overreacting”. Thank you for recommending that the college student seek help ASAP. Thanks for your excellent podcast. By the way - how could you NOT have recommended “Animal House”???
asdhjlvcfyuh via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/23/21
THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR CREATING THIS DURING THESE DARK TIMES! It's been so amazing to listen to others going through the same thing. I don't normally write reviews, but I LOVE your podcast. Thank you so much for helping us all feel a little better this year.Read full review »
Gretel E via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/19/21
Advice column letters + tv/movie recommendations = so much to love. Love this show because I am often reminded of shows and movies I already love and have been watching a lot of what Kristen and Rafer recommend and love those too. Thank you for the levity!
TamiHackbarth via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/17/21
My new favorite podcast! I love Rafer and Kristen and their movie and tv recs. This podcast makes me so happy and is the perfect thing for my mood right now. I’m so happy to have the whole backlist of episodes to listen to!!!!!

My husband and I were long time listeners of Movie Date and we were very disappointed when that podcast ended. I was so excited to hear you on PCHH and find out that you have a new podcast. I think this is even better than Movie Date. We listen every week to your new episode and I am working my...Read full review »

I started listening after Rafer and Kristen were on an episode of Pop Culture Happy Hour and have been bingeing it ever since. It is the perfect antidote for the grim news podcasts that usually fill my playlist.
r383ccaliz via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/07/21
I found this gem through Kristen’s other podcast BTB. Rafer and Kristen have great chemistry and play off the other so well. Their life advice is just as wonderful as their movie advice. And it has been so much fun listening to each of their reviews of some of my favorite movies (I can’t...Read full review »

Aired on ABC network for two seasons. Now cancelled. I think Hulu is running series episodes on it’s website. Love your show.

I looooove this podcast! It is such a delight! As a person who listens to people’s problems for a living, I tend to avoid advice shows, but loved Kristen from her other podcast, By the Book, so thought I’d give it a try and am so glad I did!

I’ve been binging this show as I do all sorts of chores to set up my new home. I love both Rafer and Kristen and love hearing their different recommendations.

I love this podcast! Kristen and Rafer have great rapport and even better taste in movies and television. On top of that, they give excellent advice (though they'll tell you it's only "questionable"). I love the mix of high-brow and low-brow recommendations and I especially love...Read full review »
