Adored this. It's highly probable Emma Thompson will get an Oscar nomination for it too. She's utterly brilliant and this is one of her all-time best performances. Mindy Kaling is also delightful. The film definitely adheres to a certain Devil Wears Prada formula but the laughs (of which are plentiful) and topicality keep it fresh and relevant. Really a wonderful film. Should be a major crowdpleaser. A-

I’d like to see the guys who couldn’t deal with Captain Marvel’s “overbearing feminism” last 20 minutes with this one. :hahaha:

I’m fine with that type of movie, but you can’t be a smart, so very smart, grounded in reality movie and then also have characters saying things like “being a cis-gendered straight white man is so hard!!!!” And its kind of half-assed too. I figured after all this we would end with Mindy heading off on her own, but remaining friends with Emma as equals. But nope, she goes back to work with her and brings a happy and so very diverse group of happy people with her and marries the only other person she became friends with.

There is still alot to like though, it has plenty of funny moments and a few heartwarming ones as well. There is a good story here, the writers just couldn’t figure out how to get from A to B to C without hitting their audience in the face. Loved Mindy and Emma too, they definitely are able to spin at least half of this movie from a twitter SJW rant into gold.

I haven't seen this yet, but I definitely recommend watching any Emma Thompson interview in the last 2 months. She's absolutely hilarious, and one of the sharpest interviews I've seen in a long time.

No offense to Algren, but that thread sucks. The remake is way better. It joins Evil Dead 2 as the only one of its like I can think of.

How is the movie topical and current when it still thinks Dane Cook is the most popular comedian in the world? :P
