    Also the Devil Wears Prada, while filled with flaws, is not a negative movie for women per se. The lead quit her job, and found ways to bond with her coworkers including her boss, and has a supportive network of diverse friends who help teach her balance when she starts to drift

    thanks for bringing this up. i don’t think it’s bad for women! it’s just not overlayed with explicit feminism, ie, characters talking about feminism and what women owe each other, etc. i personally think that helps make it work better, as a movie. it’s a great movie!

    It's been a weird climate- I think my political hackles are up if you get my meaning ;) - I do thank you for expressing your views on this and it's worth the read- I do appreciate that you addressed that women can be better bosses! <3

    This reminds me of rewatching Working Girl recently. The happy parts aren't so happy. Initially the supportive hero is her woman boss. Then that boss steals her idea and we're supposed to feel exhilarated when she's canned cause clearly there's only room for one woman to succeed.

    Thank you, really enjoyed your article! I'm disappointed this year by female-led comedies (such as The Hustle) which are about two women just fighting. Not my experience at all and tiresome to see, when I just want a fun movie.

    I should think we all know such archetypes - not only in Hollywood...

    Above the Line women in Hollywood, are now far more ruthless than the above the Line Men.

    With the films mentioned all being remakes (yes ALL of them) you are addressing a trope that is very old. It's important to realize why it exists in the first place. 
Women all don't get along and have pillow fights at the office?
No bad days allowed ever?
Nahh. 🤔

    It could be considered a movie where Tucci is heavily underrated for going to bat for a new employee that would otherwise have been fired within a week. Who in ANY corporate culture even does that today without something in it for them? no one. Yes these are fiction.

    Sandberg was called out when 'Lean In' was released before the platform was caught, but anon blog =few reads/clicks, still have the links/shots; The online victors in history are well funded. It would certainly be nice indeed if advertisers/sponsors quit writing women's history.

    This... with a pro-tip: the token woman at the men's conference table is outnumbered. That is what America's corporate boardrooms look like, still today. (And there is a reason why she is outnumbered. Millennials and GenZ will learn this.)

    One of the reasons why I love @TheBoldTypeTV. @MeloraHardin plays a boss who is bad ass, top of her field, and who also takes the time to be a mentor to the younger women in her office. She is an amazing and I legitimately want to work for her!

    Funny, most of my horrible bosses were men. And I'm a boomer still working full time.

    Late Night won’t be released until day after tomorrow. Fer cryin’ out loud, have the courtesy to give me and the rest of the ticket buying public a chance to see it before using it for an intellectual spring board.
