It’s no secret that Hollywood often treats women like shit.
While on the rare occasion woman are given fully-formed, complicated and beautiful roles to tackle, most of the time they’re relegated to roles that exist solely to support a male character and his story. You know the ones: the ‘sassy comedic relief’ (who is often black), the ‘free spirit’ otherwise known as Manic Pixie Dream Girl, ‘the vixen’, ‘the token Asian’ and many more.
It’s just these awful familiar female tropes that YouTube sketch group Nuclear Family are calling out in their latest video for a fake movie called ‘Underwritten Female Characters’. Watch the trailer below and laugh/cry over how very accurate the tropes are.
