Improbably enough, Papi liked this more than I did. I thought it was misogynistic.

  3. I totally agree that it was misogynistic - I walked out of that movie theater with my feathers seriously ruffled! I hated how blank the female protaganist was and the thesis that she was heartless/cold/confusing because she didn't want their affair to be more than it was, even though the movie tried to pretend it actually thought she was always way too cool for him. But really that self-absorbed, entitled resentment was always just their, lurking underneath the film's surface.

  4. Exactly what Rachel said. The character was the girlfriend from hell that men warn each other about -- hot and cold, impossible to predict. And her character was only sketched out in the most shallow way.
