Take a break from work: watch a trailer…
So let me get this straight: It’s “funny” if a woman who is offering herself sexually to a man is then punished for behaving in a way that would generally garner at least temporary approval from men by being sucked out of the window of a moving bus, presumably to her death?
I ask this, too: Where are the movies that are similarly outrageous sexual fantasies for heterosexual women? Where are the movies that posit that plain, even unsocialized women are regularly accosted by sexually desirable men seeking to indulge their every whim? (Yes, I know I’ve asked this question before, but it never gets answered.)
The subgenre of movies devoted to pandering to the adolescent sexual fantasies of males would be a lot easier to stomach if there was an equivalent for females. I’d probably hate those movies, too, of course, but it would be a lot easier to ignore movies like Miss March.
You know what really chaps me? You just know that writing-directing team Zach Cregger and Trevor Moore said to each other, “Dude! What if we made a movie totally ripped off from that ‘Centerfold’ song that was popular when we were in diapers?” “Dude, that would be awesome!”
Also: When will Hugh Hefner finally shrivel up under his own soullessness and finally disappear in a puff of wizened misogyny?
Miss March opens in the U.S. on March 13; no U.K. release date has been announced.
