Fuck Hollywood



What's more disgusting is that the trailer was on loop at my gym.

I dunno. From the trailer it seems to actually pierce the veil that Amy Schumer sees herself as a plus-sized sex symbol. It's a hell of a lot better than the aborted idea they had to cast her as a land-whale barbie. It depends where the movie ultimately goes with it in the end.

Mr beta Romcom likes her for her "confidence" aka being a slutty stuck up bitch.

Fat women should be taught two things:
1. Lose weight
2. Act pleasant/feminine.

It's basically Shallow Hal with a cunt, although rather tellingly all that changes is how the woman sees herself, rather than the guy's view of the women around him.

Sorry to quote self, plot twist:
First red pill romantic comedy.

Usually the beta schlub wins over the hot but eccentric and crazy girl.

This movie shows reality: his simping gets him a slutty old pig. He wifes.

RE: Amy Schumer thread
I don't care what anyone says, there are times when she does look quite cute. She doesn't have an ugly face and her hair is really nice. If she lost weight all of these things would be more noticeable, and easier to like. More importantly, if she quit trying to be a badass with that ugly attitude which doesn't suit her, she'd be more attractive. I think the reason people get frustrated at females like this is because of what I just said. Unlike other lardasses (i.e. Tess Holliday) this one could be quite likeable potentially. She's not completely obnoxious, and one can see that really she's insecure, which can be endearing.

But she lives in 2018 so it's better to fantasize about feeling beautiful. Ironically, the movie is saying that you need to bang your head to get that result.

That's not how we do things in Russia, comrade.

RE: Amy Schumer thread
I think the movie is really an attempt to gender-swap The Nutty Professor.





The idea in The Nutty Professor is that if a guy thinks he's alpha, then people will start treating him as alpha, even though the audience is still sort of in on the joke and laughing at Jerry Lewis sort of pretending that he's Dean Martin. But that is a tenet of game, is it not?

What happens when a fat chick behaves as if she's hot? It doesn't really work, which is what the trailer suggests, that everyone (including women) just sort of rolls their eyes at her false-confidence.

I think it's too early to know what kind of message the movie attempts to send here, but I don't see it suggesting that we all treat Amy Schumer's figure as attractive. Quite the opposite.

< Not comparable. Actually the Jekyll transformation of Jerry Lewis was closer to his Alpha-alcoholic personality. He only played the fool in the movies.

But a fat chick is still a fat chick even with makeup and designer clothing. Amy Schumer does not have terrible genetics and she could be attractive. But no acting attractive will make her hot.

Men however can pull off the self-confident successful strong guy even while having a few pounds more:




This is a good depiction - coupled with his immense wealth, then a moderate fatso can act all ladykiller. We have it proven again and again in various studies.

Sure - that man will be even more attractive with a six-pack, but he is still attractive to many many women. And honestly - a wealthy, self-confident, arrogant slightly fat man with Game will outbang a shy good-looking bloke. That hardly applies to women.

RE: Amy Schumer thread
Having watched the trailer, the major problem with the movie seems to be that Schumer is not nearly unattractive enough for the main concept to work.

The overwhelming majority of women in the U.S. today are literal zeroes, especially if you consider the full age spectrum. Go to a mall in the South, and you'll understand why obesity is considered an "epidemic." (And those are the ones who are able-bodied enough to leave their homes.)

Today you have 300+ pounders getting married, and often to men who themselves aren't nearly so heavy. It's become commonplace. I'm sure many guys who see this trailer are scratching their heads, as the "unattractive" Schumer would be a major upgrade for them — an impossible dream, in fact.

And what about the women (and men) of other ethnicities who see blonde white women as virtual goddesses?

The only audience I see enjoying this movie are the brothers who lose their minds over a thick white girl. They won't understand the humor, but they might enjoy seeing her dancing provocatively.

RE: Amy Schumer thread
Does Amy Schumer really have that many fans? I'm not seeing it and wonder why Hollywood is still trying to foist her on the public.

For example, why did the producers for the movie, Thank You for Your Service, hire her? That movie was obviously directed at the military community and their supporters, among others. Just about everyone knows that 2/3 of the military community voted for Trump. Yet, they put Schumer, a vocal anti-Trumper, in a major role. In spite of good reviews, the movie was a bomb, making $9M on a $20M budget. Talk about an own goal.

Re: "I Feel Pretty"

Going by the no.s on Box Office Mojo.
The film had a production budget of $32mil., & so far has made worldwide ~$60mil. After a month in release.
Taking marketing & cinema costs into account, no way the film can be considered a success & not even having broken even yet.

http://www.boxofficemojo.com/movies/?pag...pretty.htm

Melissa McCarthy's new 'comedy' is also her worst showing at the box office apparently.

Whereas Deadpool 2 made $53mil in the U.S. alone on it's first Friday...

Hollywood being so utterly open and sanctimonious about their far-left feminist views just alienates ever more people.

Also the preamble of the McCarthy movie is bizarre:





Sure there was Old School, but this is much worse.

Imagine what the reaction would be if they did a movie about a 50yo man going back to college and fucking lots of college coeds - all while helping his son to learn Game and become a pussy-magnet.

I would watch that movie, but it would have Antifa and the feminists demonstrating at the premiere.

Thumbs Down RE: Amy Schumer thread
Amy Schumers says she is going to stop looking super fuckable

Actress Amy Schumer lamented how women in comedy need to look “super fuckable” in order to get attention in the industry in a new interview, saying that she won’t be dressing that way anymore during her standup comedy act.
In an article for Elle titled, “Amy Schumer Doesn’t Want To Look Fuckable,” the comedian said, “I’m so grateful to this younger generation for pointing out how little equality there is and how women, to get attention and be treated well, we’ve had to also try to look super fuckable.”

“For me, I was trying to get people to stop flipping the channel, ‘Oh, it’s a girl in a short dress’ then I hoped they would listen to what I was saying. The Leather Special was me kind of owning it and relying on my voice because I’ve earned the right and I have people’s attention,” the Trainwreck star said.

RE: Amy Schumer thread
An important game principle is being lost in this thread.

Women are not attracted to men in the same way that men are attracted to women.

Men: Women's physical appearance is paramount

Women: Men's physical appearance is not paramount and subordinate to other considerations.

A woman can *love an overweight man in a way that a man cannot love an overweight woman.

*women and men do not love in the same way.

At least she's honest about being an attention-whore.

Presenting a public persona with some delusions of grandeur attracts plenty of attention. As far as celebrities thinking they're hotter than they are, Lena Dunham takes the cake. She makes Woody Allen's lopsided SMV matchups in his romantic comedies look plausible in comparison.
