sexist terrible for children
28 March 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This was a new movie on Netflix and my daughter wanted to check it out. I was very disappointed in how sexualized the female character is in this. She looks like a Bratz doll in a super low cut tank top. It was completely distracting and really unnecessary. The main male character was normal looking completely devoid of washboard abs and chiseled features, because male character don't have to be sexy, but the female ones do apparently. Oh, and there are only like two female characters in the whole movie, the sexy one and a secretary. I think this movie sends a harmful message to kids about the role men and women. I'm honestly wondering how something this sexist was produced and created in 2014.
