Ladies - Learn to manipulate your husbands!
27 February 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Cripes. Makes me ashamed to be a woman to watch this short, in which two wives ruthlessly manipulate one of their husbands so that the poor dope will shell out a fortune to buy his wife a brand new house. The first one already did her manipulating, and preens at the beginning of the short all about how perfect her house is, lording it over the other one. Then she comes up with the idea to make her friend's husband also do what she wants. It's disturbing - this woman is a Svengali. Worse, this damn short is frankly urging women to be deceptive, greedy, demanding, and manipulative. Lord, but that era was scary. The endless urging for people to conform, and to be as fake and two-faced as humanly possible...it makes me shudder. No wonder our grandparents were so screwed up.
