Tell me something I don't know
20 August 2005 | by (Bulgaria) – See all my reviews

The movie is exceptional in more ways than one, I'd never encountered anything as original. It was obviously conceived by a fascinating enough mind - or a number of them.

At the same time, it's one of the most reactionary, misogynist movies I've ever seen, and I've seen plenty. Sexist jokes, demeaning talk, a female antagonist who's "the most beautiful woman in the world" on the outside, but whose true self is evil, twisted and ugly to the last; feminists being portrayed as fat, ugly, raving maniacs - you name it, if it's a woman-bashing cliché it's most likely in there (and it's by no means in there to be mocked or deconstructed, in case anyone was wondering).

The movie's being a comedy is a poor excuse, plus an unoriginal one. Whenever a nasty shot at women gets challenged, it's defended with "oh come on, it's just a joke", but the simple fact is (and will always remain) that the kinds of jokes one chooses to make reflect one's attitude and views on the subject at hand. All in all, the movie is yet another potshot at females, taken by a man who's obviously fundamentally intimidated by them. Very engaging and interesting to watch no doubt (makes a change), but no less typical.
