This is why I predict the American cinema and studio system will die.
Nowadays it is all boring sequels and prequels and univirse films where every woman is an engineer and hates herself and is ashamed of her own body and so hides it.
I am stopping my interest in (new) movies now.
Road House has brawny men, nice women, bad women, thin women, available women, fighting, music and rowdiness.
And Hollywood if.you.really.really.insist there is a female physician. Happy? And she voluntarily gets on her back on the first date (should give you heart attack right there).
