Important topic poorly addressed
8 October 2016 | by pkeys-48272See all my reviews

Hard to believe these women couldn't find a man (other than the severely traumatized or psychiatrists in it) to work on this. If they had, they might have better addressed the enormous role women play in this problem. The vast majority of women encourage this wounded alpha male behavior. Its what I tell my 14 year old son- you'll get those women who pathologize boyhood, like the filmmakers and most every female teacher he's ever had (anyone notice the dearth of positive female educators in this film?), or they are going to get the "I want a bad boy" from most young women. I tell him to just be decent, humble you, and sooner or later you'll find the minority of decent women out there. Take a look at online dating profiles of women. What's the two characteristic almost every woman asks for? "You have to be confident and make me laugh all the time." They don't want a real person. They don't know what to do with them when they find one. Full time confidence and weakness and vulnerability don't jibe, my dears.
