A Feminist Fantasy -- No Males!
16 September 2005 | by imdb_joeSee all my reviews

I vaguely remember watching this movie on TV. All the while, something seemed really off about it, something vaguely odd, but I couldn't quite put my finger on why. Then, while watching the final scene, it suddenly hit me - - the entire movie was filmed without a single male in the cast! None! Not even the extras in scenes where you would normally see male and female extras in real world settings. Now, this _was_ a movie written and filmed by feminists, fair enough, but this total exclusion of males from the cast - - even in outdoor scenes around town, etc. - - was positively bizarre.

As Ma Bailey tried to tell Anne in "It's a Wonderful Life", "But if there weren't any boys, there wouldn't be any...oh, never mind."
