Did You Know?


Archie Comics and Riverdale were a source of inspiration for the town of Rosedale. Craig is purposefully dressed to look like Archie, Sadie and McKayla are both cheerleaders (like Betty and Veronica) and the popular teen hangout is the juice bar, which is a contemporary version of a malt shoppe.

In the gym, after Big Al has been stabbed in the chest, he falls on his back under the barbell. Then Sadie pulls one single locking pin that makes the barbell fall and cut Big Al's skull in two. But one would expect a second locking pin to hold the barbell, not a single one. See more »

If the roles were reversed, there would be an uproar. #menarenotdispensable
13 February 2018 | by manuelasaezSee all my reviews

Recently, there has been a surge of these types of movies; some mentally ill females take it upon themselves to off any man that crosses their path. Movies like M.F.A. where every man is a predator, and poor defenseless females all have to resort to drastic measures to "teach them a lesson". Then comes this movie, that does such a good job of making light of a very serious subject; the notion that men are disposable and dispensable. There is no reason for the violence in this movie other than some girls being bored. That's it. Yes, they are mentally ill, and come from very different backgrounds, but once you start seeing their modus operati, you start to realize that they don't give a crap about the people they kill; they are doing it for notoriety and fame, all the while getting away with every single one thing they do. Who would ever suspect a cute, young teenage female, amirite?

Imagine if the gender was reversed for this movie; two young boys kill any female they feel annoys them or doesn't fall in line with what they want them to do, and get away with it. There would be outrage, the feminazi's would be trying to overturn trucks and assaulting men just for having it, and it would make every single critics worst films of the year list. It's okay when girls do it, but when a boy does it, it's a problem?

This is why my main issue lies with the way the subject manner was handled; making light of how replaceable society thinks men are is very low effort, and caters to a very limited and hateful mindset. I was offended, and I am not easily offended, that someone (two men, no less) decided to make this film, make it a comedy, and think that it is okay in this day and age. Where is the sympathy? Why are men and young boys seen as nothing more than pawns, while mentally ill girls are treated as the main event? It takes a specially kind of sociopath misandrist to find these types of movie funny. They are awful, make light of serious issues, and make everything a damn joke.

Seriously, though, the movie was pretty funny and I enjoyed the hell out of it. The acting was great, and that short haired blonde girl is going to be a star! Despite how I personally feel about the subject matter, I am a grown ADULT and understand that this is fiction, and respected the work as such. I will recommend this film to my friends, as it was very well done.
