    There's some huge issues in that comic, for sure

    But some of the issues the writer of that has with it (specifically the early stuff) are based on her imposing ideas that were definitely not in the movie into it

    Do you mean the part where the author assumes
    That the wives hadn't spent a majority of their lives as captives and had lived and been educated on the outside? Because that part of the review confused the hell out of me since I didn't get that impression from the movie at all.

    That said, I'm happy someone went through this comic page by page so I could get a good impression of how bad it was without actually reading it. Pretty much everything about it, from the character interactions to the writing to the lack of subtlety just doesn't seem to mesh with the movie.

    Yeah, exactly that

    Spy was really good and hilarious

    The only character I didn't like was Peter Serafranconqosbshwtwoxnwicz (Pretty sure that's the spelling).

    I love him as an actor but his character was basically Male Gaze and Sexual Assault: The Person

    I just saw Spy! it was way better than I was expecting!

    Jason Statham has a fantastic ability to poke fun at his usual archetype that I was not prepared to see him express

    I want to see Statham do an indie film where he's a closeted husband and father but falls in love with Matt Bomer, his daughter's violin tutor. His whole life gets wrecked and he never gets the man of his secret dreams, but he finally sells his macho Civil Engineering contracting company to follow his dream of founding a green energy start-up in Australia, the same country his parents emigrated from to the UK for the oil boom in the North Sea when he was a kid.

    Jason, call me, we'll have pho.

    I had the most fun thinking of it as a meta commentary on the series
    People are bored with dinosaurs, so we have to make them bigger and better. Yes, I know the last time went badly but we've learned a lot and we're confident that it will all work out. Trust us.

    I'm mainly talking about the sexist stuff. I'm pretty sure that would make it not fun for me, no matter how fun it is supposed to be.

    One giant rack of apparently unfastened containers falls on John, leaving him soaking and screaming on the floor. Ted laughs. So do we, because watching Walhberg degrade himself this emphatically is funny. It’s one of the few times in any movie that an emotion really surfaces on his face, and that the emotion is disgust somehow makes it funnier. Someone from the clinic comes in alarmed, but says not to worry. John’s only been doused with the unusable sperm of men with sickle cell. There’s no explanation of sickle cell’s being a blood disease that potentially affects the health of about 100,000 Americans, most of whom are African American. There’s just Ted, connecting the dots enough to say, through his laughter, that John shouldn’t feel bad. “You see that? You’re covered in rejected black guys’ sperm,” he says. “You’re like a Kardashian!”

    It’s possible that at the theater where you watch this movie, the initial laughter will be too loud to hear Ted’s punch line. But I imagine that if Kanye West were to wind up in the audience, the punch would feel actionably real. MacFarlane’s inept attempt to meat-grind race into comedy doesn’t end there. Ted and John share a running joke about the predominance of black penises on the Internet. (You’re always no more than two clicks away, John more or less says.) And when Ted and Tami-Lynn discover that — because she was once a junkie-whore — children aren’t possible biologically, they attempt to adopt, only to be told that Ted isn’t a human. He’s property. There goes his cashier job, his bank account, and his dignity. There also went my patience.

    On the one hand, the film drops many noble references to anthropologist Dawn Prince-Hughes’ work on human consciousness; on the other, it directly compares the Emancipation Proclamation to an anthropomorphised teddy bear’s fight to be able to legally shtup his human wife.

    Ted’s legal battle is clearly fashioned as a civil rights parable (it has the Dred Scott references to prove it), but the film features broad racial stereotypes and jokes about Ferguson and “homos”. Pick one, MacFarlane, or go harder; the majority of his “naughty” jokes are so sophomoric as to be completely stripped of any political frisson. And then there’s the moment when Ted watches a particularly agonising scene from Roots and draws a parallel between his own plight and Kunta Kinte’s.
