- Okay, everybody, um.
Excuse me, sorry.
Just a quick reminder before we begin, um,
this is a safe space.
And even though we may be one of the most
despised members of society,
it's here that we support each other.
So, having said that,
to the support group for women
who didn't love the movie Wonder Woman.
Who would like to start us off?
- Hi, my name is Rachel,
and I didn't love Wonder Woman.
- [Others] Hi, Rachel.
- I mean, I thought it was okay, but
like it definitely wasn't great.
- No, I know.
- So, I posted that I didn't think it lived up
to the hype.
And then the next morning,
all my friends had turned against me.
I was being labeled anti-woman, which is insane,
because I volunteer at a women's shelter.
- Good for you.
- And I work at Pl--
I worked at Planned Parenthood.
My supervisor fired me
when she saw that I posted about Wonder Woman.
- Fired me right in the comments section.
Her comment got 117 likes.
- It's okay, it's alright.
- It's like so many.
- I know, so many.
- Wait, she could-a just--
- I saw Wonder Woman for the second time this weekend,
because I thought maybe the first time I was just
not in the mood.
I like movies that empower women.
I thought Hidden Figures was great.
- So good.
- Octavia Spencer was a treasure.
- So good.
Wonder Woman has a lot of problems.
How is an island full of only hot chicks
- Why is she always walking like a runway model?
- And I am sorry, but her blind confidence is just naïve.
- You can't be confident
for no reason!
- Oh, thank you!
- And it was too long.
Two hours and 20 minutes, I ain't got time for that shit.
- Why is she running around in wedged heels?
We all know that wedged heels are just as unstable
and uncomfortable as regular high heels.
- That's what I'm saying!
- Running around in wedged heels, I mean it's impressive,
but it's stupid.
you've been awfully quiet,
is everything okay?
Last night, I lied
and said I loved Wonder Woman.
- Oh my God.
- No, it's okay.
- I was at a bachelorette party, and you know,
they wanted to go watch it, and I pretended like
I haven't yet, you know?
And when we got out, they were just raving and gushing
about how it's such a big step for women.
And, at first, you know, I stayed quiet.
But then, Laura, who's the shit-stirrer of the whole group,
looked at me and was like,
"Well, didn't ya love it, didn't ya love it, Tonya?
"Wasn't it better than Moonlight?"
I was cornered!
I had no choice, so I blurted out, "I loved it!"
We're just expected to love it,
because it's the first female super hero movie
that sees the protagonist not through a male gaze?
Fuck that shit!
Ooh, I'm so scared,
it's a lass--
- I just wanted to say, I 100% agree.
It's really not a good movie
and definitely not an outright feminist triumph.
She's a scantily-dressed, gorgeous woman
who poses no threat,
nor challenges the gender norms in this country.
I'm with hers.
- Thank you, sir, very brave.
- Right, yeah!
And how 'bout Glow?
That's an overrated show, too!
- Fuck you!
Glow is amazing.
