Chick Flicks Then vs. Now

The Women 1939:

Maybe it’s the fact that it’s a blatant Sex in the City ripoff. Maybe it’s Jada Pinkett-Smith embodying the token black girl by saying shit like “foyn!”. Maybe it’s that The Women ’39 actually takes some thought to follow the clever dialogue. Maybe it’s just that I’m a huge Rosalind Russell fan after watching His Girl Friday.

But come on Hollywood. This is pathetic.

    Hmmm… I was kind of looking forward to seeing it, but after this trailer (which I haven’t seen before!)… I don’t know. You’re right about the dialogue from ’39; I had to watch the film a couple of times, with the sound turned up, before I could catch on to a few things!

    And… there will never be another Ma Kettle (aka Marjorie Main)!
