Ladies — always mucking up the important film narratives for the dudes, am I right? That’s why this extensive “female character flowchart” is so handy: You can easily figure out which terribly cliched movie trope you’re watching by simply consulting the chart.

Someone Finally Says Something Sensible About “Sex And The City 2″

You know what gets people worked up on the internet? Not children going to bed hungry. Not murderers and rapists who never see the inside of a jail cell. Not people who abuse animals. No, it’s “Sex and the City 2” that makes people lose their flippin’ minds.

Was 2009 The “Year Of The Woman” In Movies?

There are pretty much three roles for actresses in mainstream movies—the ingenue, the quirky best friend, or the mother—and all other actresses get sent to the glue factory. Some actresses enjoy diverse careers, like Meryl Streep, Judi Dench and Helen Mirren, who’ve always been cast in deep roles regardless of their age. But they are…
