The true wisdom of chick emancipation flicks revealed

30 Jun

I was watching yesterday Break-up starring Jennifer Aniston and Vince Vaughn for lack of doing anything worthwhile.

It was fine, going nowhere, but still throwing here and there some interesting moments. Then it ended. And what an enlightening ending.

Let’s revisit the plot. A nowhere going couple gets into a stupid fight, fight that gets stupider by the minute, till the woman has a Buddha flash of wisdom (copious tears all ignored here by me with a quick dash to the fridge for more beer) and they break-up. What caught my attention was the closure moment. They meet again after undefined but not too long period, she is now a successful high flying career woman and the man is kind of nobody, dumbass, at low end of life kinda person.

Moral of the story –Don’t leave a woman because if you leave her she will be successful and you a dumbass jack.

That’s cool. Good for you ladies.

Or maybe I should be selfish and not let you go for my own good.

Hey, hey now wait a minute….but that would mean you still would be good for nothing sorry ass, who I regret meeting in my life and the “living hell” goddess of misery.

I have a vague suspicion that I have missed a very vital point here.

Am I supposed to treat you like dirt so that you succeed or am I supposed to pamper you so that you rot?

Message currently decoded by simple male brain-

  1. Mean, selfish men treat their women nicely and ensure women go nowhere, while they do well in their careers and lead a comfortable life.
  2. Benevolent, caring, sensitive, gentle men, kick women around, are heartless and insensitive to their needs so that she succeeds.

I know there is a catch somewhere there. Could someone explain this conundrum and clear this fog of confusion.

    I actually like this movie …. I know its cheesy, but still.

    A woman who is intelligent and capable will do well, whether she is with a selfish jerk or a nice guy. She just has to have the balls to keep everything aside including man and go for it.

    1. Mean, selfish women have the privilege to blame their over-worked husbands for a lack of career while they enjoy a pampered, cozy life…
    2. Career minded women stay with benevolent, sensitive gentlemen till the time is ripe to kick-start a career…

    Who said the world is unfair to the fairer sex??

    I realised today you removed your comment on the final part “Amusement calling n+15″…
    I had thought i would reply to your comment when i have enough time to do justice to it… however now i am left wondering as to what could have made you remove it.
