In the context of the movie, wouldn’t you not want to leave your stomach or legs exposed in the jungle? You could get mosquito bites or cuts. Hollywood baffles me.

Hey maybe it makes sense in context, like, maybe she breaths through her skin. You should be ashamed for assuming anything MaryAnn.

Really though, someone needs to press them on this. I want to hear their justification.

I am 1000 percent sure that no one involved in making this movie looked at this and saw anything wrong with it.

I liked the Movie Waffler’s comment on Twitter:

Why does the JUMANJI remake look like a porn parody?

Oh, what the fuck?

This is a kids’ movie. Why do they need the sexy explorer chick outfit for the sole female character, while the men looked reasonably dressed for the jungle. Not a good message to the youths.

This is either devil’s advocacy or wishful thinking on my part, but is it possible the costuming is intentional and commented-on in-movie? That Dwayne, Karen, and the other two are dressed the way they are because they’ve been sucked into the world of the game, and that’s what the stereotypical game characters wear? Like if you were transported into the game of Clue as Colonel Mustard and Miss Scarlet, you’d be wearing a monocle and a slinky evening gown?

Though thinking about it, it’d be funnier for the characters to have their characters and outfits switched. It’s not like an appropriately-sized version of what Karen Gillan’s wearing would be skimpier than stuff Dwayne Johnson’s worn for most of his professional career.

Sure, it’s *ironic* sexism!

If it is, as always, it’s impossible to distinguish it from authentic sexism.

I may not think much of Gillan as an actress, but she deserves better than this.
