Is there anything either positive or negative in the film’s representation of women not already accounted for here? (points will vary)
IS THE FILM’S DIRECTOR FEMALE? No (does not impact scoring)
IS THE FILM’S SCREENWRITER FEMALE? No (does not impact scoring)
BOTTOM LINE: Women exist in this movie to let their bare breasts bounce in slo-mo at the camera and to stick needles in men’s dicks, among other things designed to scare men silly. Love ’em or hate ’em, this movie is pretty sure that women aren’t really people but merely playthings or punishers of men.
NOTE: This is not a “review” of Hot Tub Time Machine 2! It is simply an examination of how well or how poorly it represents women. (A movie that represents women well can still be a terrible film; a movie that represents women poorly can still be a great film.) Read my review of Hot Tub Time Machine 2.
