ETA: The Inlander did not link to the whole article. Thanks Jon for pointing this out.
how lovely of author MaryAnn Johanson to point out such things like:
"As an example of Hollywood’s utter disdain for women, particularly in movies aimed at young men, Miss March hits a new low, punishing women who appear to have any sexual experience or knowledge with insults, injury and even death. The more they make themselves available to men, the more harshly they are punished."
So, in the world of Miss March — and presumably in the worlds of many of the young men at whom this movie is aimed — women are worthless, interchangeable, and literally disposable. The men aren’t much better, of couse, but at least the world caters to their worthlessness.
lovely. lovely. I saw the preview & almost puked. do I smell a boycott, flist?
also ETA2: I agree that men are stereotyped in this as well. the comments in the flickfiksopher point out that there is a lot of uncheck/unexamined privilege going on here… (and yet another hapless movie character gets stabbed in the face with a fork. thank you www.imdb.com/title/tt0097108/ for starting that crappy ass trend.)
