The major threat to manhood and mankind?

Seriously now, guys. It’s just a movie.

The guys at Double Viking are just totally freaking out over this one. I’m scratching my head to figure why they care enough to get their blood pressure up over some chick flick.

You’re right. I’m spoofing ya. Of course I’ve got it all figured out.

It’s two things.

First, yeah, they’re offended that the movie doesn’t seem to have any male roles. The idea is that the majority of important roles in any movie should belong to men, and if they’re not already there, they need to be written into the script, regardless of whether they fit in the plot. The oodles of all-male movies that have ever been made bothers them not a whit. It’s discrimination!

Also, don’t forget that this is basically a remake of a classic flick, which none of them have seen. (I admit that I have not seen the original, but I might buy it now.)

But the real issue is that this movie is about a group of women who are doing fine without any males, and seem to have no use for them. They are completely unconcerned about the feelings of males discussed in the movie. And they’re doing okay!

Horrors! This should not be permitted! These guys are going to boycott this movie. Yeah, right. Like they ever leave their parents’ basement to interact with a living, breathing female. In other words, they’re not going to download it when it shows up on their favorite bit torrent tracker.
