Rope-A-Trope Ding-Aling

Did you see it?  That overused, offensive, stereotypical “trope” in the opening credits— “Bitch Media.”

Here’s another one that comes crawling out of the media cave:

Jane, Anita, you ignorant slut.”

Okay yeah, the “we’re being treated as just a bunch of tropes” riff is her thing, but it’s made possible by discarding all the other films that don’t treat women that way, isn’t it.

Why yes, I think it is.


  1. Also, too: There was nothing particularly “manic” or even “pixie-ish” in the clip of Zooey Deschanel’s role in 500 Days of Summer. I think Anita Trope-a-dope just ripped off the Wiki article on the “Manic Pixie Dream Girl.” Because, it was there.

    As for “Elizabethtown,” I just couldn’t make myself spring for the $2.99 to Roku it.
