A lesson in why you should be politically on the left
11 August 2019 | by nakhaishakaiSee all my reviews

When you go to vote in US elections - or any election for that matter - remember that the people who created this monstrosity are on the right. They are money hungry capitalists. Hollywood is vocationally ill and always lookng for more money - and films like this reaffirm why the rightw-ing capitalists should be kept out of power forever and ever.

This awful, brainless gender switch is what they want to turn the world into.

Say no to the millionaire class.
