I Don't Know How She Does It (2011)
People will always have problem with a working woman
Imagine this: The movie Jerry McGuire with a female lead. Geraldine McGuire, if you will. Exceedingly loves her job. Has a great spouse/boyfriend. Her male co-workers want to sleep with her because she is so strong, ambitious and charmingly assertive. Goofy sometimes. Works in a tyrannical environment. Juggles ceaselessly. Oh wait, she also has 2 kids (unlike Jerry).
If you find Geraldine incredible to like, congrats. You just passed the test of suffering from male chauvinism (regardless of your gender).
Why does a movie with a female lead who loves her job as much as her spouse does, can't bake a cake (yet tries to), healthily flirts with her colleague but in end makes the choice of being with family over her her big career break seem so unfathomably incredulous to people? Movies are fiction. Women don't run around in heels every minute of the day and men don't have zero dialogue with 19 year old nannies. But if one has to watch a woman protagonist, why do people suddenly seem to apply all the logic in their capacities on even the mildest humour.
Whatever happened to going to movies with the prospect of transcending into a resort of surrealism? In this case, a woman who had a same 'problems' as Jerry McGuire did.
We liked Jerry McQuire obsess over work, flirt around with females and find family's love in the end, didn't we? Then why not Geraldine?
