At first, I thought, oh, another women-being-exploited film. Then they crashed that by showing Katya being happier than her friend.  Then I thought, Ha! Finally, a woman who doesn’t need some man to be happy! Then they crashed that too when Mr. Perfect Faultless Man showed up and she melted into a spineless wimp as far as he’s concerned. In conclusion, male supremacy ends up being inevitable.  Which was annoying.

And it was going so well, too…

One thing I found amusing though: my mother told me the very same line Mr. Perfect said, except in reverse–she thinks the wife should make more (which she does).

I’m thinking that the perpetual subordination of women in all these films might be my final paper.
