Aw! I hope we can get to a place where there are lots of women as heroes representing different races and ethnicities for girls and boys to admire, wouldn’t that be grand. One step at a time, I guess. (I really liked this movie)

It’s not out in the US, but it opened in the UK and Ireland on Monday.

The US is not the whole world. :-)

I’ve seen it twice now, in two different countries as it happens (neither of them the USA).

Yes, we need more diverse faces onscreen doing all the cool shit.

How about making one that doesn’t suck? Because this one looks awful and the buzz from insiders is even worse.

Lots of good movies have gotten terrible buzz and the other way around. Have you read the review of the movie on this site? MaryAnn loved it. A number of other critics who’ve seen it liked it, too. You can see it yourself and decide if you agree, if you don’t want to depend on “buzz.”

Really? I’ve heard it’s alright, pretty funny as summer action comedy goes. An original story would have been nice but whatever.

You accused someone else on this thread of expressing an opinion on the film even though “it’s not out yet” (even though it is out in some countries). So, since you clearly have not seen it, how do you know that is sucks?

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RUZFkY6rLfc I apologize if this video is too off-topic, but it felt relatable to the topic. From 2:39 – 4:24 Leslie talks about how seeing Whoopi onscreen inspired her because she saw someone who looked like her, and dangit, it made me tear up.
