    characters like mandy are actually so harmful to feminism their actively shaming women for making their own choices (going to prom/ parties) it's infuriating
    edit: i ment that she's not relatable like disney thought she would be most teenage girls are feminists and went to prom doing girlie things isn't the problem and nobody talks like she does overal disney flopped this one

      Nah they make it very clear what feminism is really all about. YOU might not feel that way but plenty of your homies do and the way woke sjw politics works is the squeakiest wheel gets the grease. You opened Pandora's box, don't whine when it blows up in your faces.

    Mandy is actually a very realistic pick me girl. She hates anything to do with what others are involved in until she finds out she likes it, and then it’s not a big deal. She’s a “feminist” who doesn’t know how to use a power tool and hates most things guys do until she likes a guy and then it’s not a big deal anymore 😂
    Edit: y’all are still arguing on my post oh my gosh 😂💀

    • tofusuns
      tofusuns Před 5 měsíci +110

      “A feminist that doesn’t know how to use a power tool” and so??? what’s the point of you pointing that out cuz it doesn’t have correlation whatsoever.. you can be a feminist without knowing how those tools work

    • Kelsey Baloney
      Kelsey Baloney Před 5 měsíci +109

      @tofusuns I guess I mean that most modern feminists talk down to men and treat them as less but they don’t know how to do a lot of basic things that are typically “manly” like using power tools. By typically, I mean statistically. And by “modern” I mean the ones of today. Feminism wasn’t about hating on men back then, that’s why I put the word in quotations. Because the “feminists” I see today are basically just whiny brats who hate men

    • EroPandaSennin
      EroPandaSennin Před 5 měsíci +101

      @Kelsey Baloney And how many "feminists" have you actually met then? Because I can tell you that it still isn't about "hating men" unless you delve into places like the manosphere.
      Do a lot of modern men know how to use/typical "manly stuff" either? Do they need to? What are the statistics on that?

    • NonDescript Y'all
      NonDescript Y'all Před 5 měsíci +5

      @tofusuns No.... "a 'feminist' who doesn't know how to use a power tool." Just saying, if you're going to use quotation marks, please make sure you recognize where they're located in your quotes.

    Kinda bugs me how for someone smart enough to apply to Harvard, not once did she think about getting a letter of recommendation until she got waitlisted..
    Like is it not common knowledge to get one when applying literally ANYWHERE?

    • Crazed Author
      Crazed Author Před 3 měsíci +5

      For me, at least, it was literally required. The best schools don't accept you unless you have at least two letters of recommendation.

    • Ducky Momo
      Ducky Momo Před 3 měsíci +1

      Not all schools require the same criteria
      Also the letter of recommendation only works in Harvard because grahams father is from Harvard
      It wouldn’t work for Princeton

    • Amaya Williams
      Amaya Williams Před 2 měsíci +3

      i find it unrealistic because on common-app (the program most american teens use to apply to colleges) literally requires two letters of recommendation so everyone that applies to college in this country knows that they're highly valuable except disney i guess

    • Melissa Herrera
      Melissa Herrera Před 10 dny

      The writers honestly don’t think through how college admissions actually work. The letter of recommendation was just a plot device to get her to meet her potential love interest. The writers who thought of this probably applied to college years ago and have no idea how weird it was that they wrote the story the way they did.

      Yeah I dislike characters like that too where the female protagonist who has the “not like other girls” personality, tries to reach a goal and antagonizes everyone in her way. They’re so terribly written as protagonists, but I’ve seen worse.

    I would love to see a teen movie navigate themes of "Don't dislike stuff just because it's popular", and "don't waste your teen years judging everyone else", and of course "getting into your dream college is not actually the be-all-end-all". If only this movie had explored any of that.

    • NylaTheWolf

    Two popular movies.
    Legally blonde and Mean girls. Both the many leads were polar opposites. One that loved all things pretty and pink, the other a total tom boy, they try to change who they are but realized that won't make them happy and go back to what they like. Both characters are strong female leads! Why does Hollywood seriously think that THIS female lead character in this movie would make me feel a connection to her? The whole review I thought, no wonder you only have one friend! Why would I wanna be around someone that is so bitter about everything!

    At this point Disney is just trying to make me hate them. Every girl character now is so quirky and basically shames anyone who goes out and parties and things like that.

      Basically, both characters are not pick me’s because they are just strong as hell, they don’t need to be focused on it at all.

    From how this looks I feel like this ending is pretty sweet and I especially love how Ben isn't secretly in love with Mandy and they really are just friends. As a girl whose three closest friends include a guy who's not in love with any of the rest of us at all it's really nice to see friendships being appreciated and not dismissed like they usually are. The one complaint I have is that Mindy seems INSUFFERABLE.

    Whenever any movie starts doing the “sexism bad I’m gonna prove it by constantly pointing out how men suck” thing I lose braincells, yet Mandy was somehow so bad she made me lose my entire brain.

      Agreed. But counterpoint: How good of a man is Graham in the end for ignoring all of that and still indicating a liking for her in the end? Don't forget one of the worst causes of women being brats is the girl worshipping guys that support it. And I'm not even saying that sexism isn't problem. It's a major one but for both and can't be solved by one or the other.

      @Stuck at the Valley it would be even more amazing if they released the g rated version on DVD.

    The thing that frustrates me about characters like Mandy is that it takes away from real, actual social issues. I'm about as far left as they come, and I despise characters like that. They’re annoying and exhausting and they aren’t helping anyone change their mind or bring awareness. Instead, they make it easy, even morally right, to dismiss these issues. The annoying socially conscience girl is now one of writers' favourite character flaws to write for women lately, as if twitter was their only source for seeing what teen girls are like these days.
    Characters like Mandy mellow by the end of the movie (good!) by caring less about those issues or even doing an about-turn by the end (not so good). I wish they would instead realise that the way they're going about it is counterproductive and find actual constructive ways to fight for their rights instead. Society has real-life battles its fighting for equality, and these depictions are damaging.
    Yes, there are people like that out there, and they’re pretty universally hated by everyone no matter political views.

    I will say its nice that she wants to go to a specific college in the movie and actually goes to that specific college for once. So often in these movies, you have characters throw away something they've been working towards their whole live at the last minute because it "isnt what they really wanted" which can sometimes be a nice lesson but sometimes its not.

Went on living life again and now boom! 3 seconds after being 25, I am now almost 40. I don't know how it happened! Yesterday I was 15!......But, seriously all jokes aside okay? I know I have no idea what is cool and what isn't. The 40+ Year olds need to actually talk to some kids about the lingo and the actions that are going on right now. Just remember though. You too are going to be just bopping along living your life and one day "5 seconds are going to pass" and you are going to be 40 as well. Take it easy on us. We arn't young - we know that but, we also arn't "old" - even though 40 seems old to you. We are doing our best to not wear Forever 21 but we arn't ready for the granny moomoo yet either.

In the same way teens were never like "OMG THAT WAS LIKE SO TOTES AWESOME! BRB" in real life. Now theyre trying to portray a "woke" teenage girl but the writers are clearly at least 30 to 40 years old and have no idea how teens act so they just throw buzzwords around hoping the woke teens will love it

    unpopular opinion: i actually really enjoyed this movie! yes, the writing was very cringe at parts, but it’s disney so i can try to excuse that. (the “name an 80’z movie that’s not sexist” scene and other parts like that really bothered me though. yes, these conversations are important but it felt so forced and random and had nothing to do w the movie) overall the story was pretty engaging and like somebody else said, i love to see a platonic relationship between a boy and girl without forcing the guy to be gay.

  • Sunspot Mill

    Alex, I'm old also enough to remember how different Disney Channel movies were back in the late 90s and early 2000s. Disney Channel was still in its Zoog Disney era and it was slowly transitioning out of being a family-aimed channel. Disney Channel did have a few movies that had mature moments or addresses serious topics before (like the ones you mentioned at 18:31) that would normally never happen again in modern DCOMs.
    You also probably forgot how the original Under Wraps movie had a scene where the girl tells her (male) friends that she doesn't wear pajamas but goes to sleep in the buf and caused one boy to crash his bike. If you thought that part was crazy, Diane Keaton was also in a 90s Disney Channel movie that I remember called Northern Lights where her character CONSTANTLY SMOKES. The plot also deals with the death of her brother (that was actually shown on screen like with the beginning of Suzie Q!) and her nephew's mother was revealed to be mentally ill. So, yeah, Prom Pact almost feels like an older DCOM from the 90s-early 2000s.

    I was kinda shocked by the more mature bits in this movie but I also think it’s kind of a welcome change. I’m 20 but thinking back to when I was in like middle school, there were only a limited number of shows and movies I could relate to so I just ended up watching either Disney channel shows bc that’s what I watched when I was younger and it was somewhat comforting even though I didn’t really find them all that funny or entertaining anymore, or I’d watch shows made for adults that I also couldn’t relate to even if I liked the storyline. All this to say that I think that’s who Disney is targeting with this, it’s a little too mature for kids under like 11 or 12 but teens would just make fun of it. It’s the exact amount of cringe for the 12-14 year old demographic and imo they’re probably a little content starved bc I know I was when I was their age. Maybe I’m wrong but I would have eaten this shit up

    Your videos are such gold comedy. Much much better than the movies you review! Who is your animator? The drawings with that voice over are so friggin hilarious.

    The minute Mandy started talking about how Prom-posals are stupid, even if I never went to my prom, HATED the idea of it, let people have fun. Quit being a sourpuss my gods.

      Not gonna lie it sounds stupid the fact we found an abbreviation for such a question most took for granted anyway

      Prom-posals are stupid thought. About the same cringe level as public proposals. And dont take me wrong here, i wont say anything against anyone liking those. I will most possibly shudder and facepalm behind their backs thought.

    I am genuinely concerned that this is a Disney movie. There are so many sex and substance abuse references it's disturbing children of all ages will be able to watch this without their parents knowing what they're absorbing on a channel for children.

    8:35 Alex, I was literally thinking that, at that exact moment, as a woman who hates "duh paytreearchy" she's awfully hung up on Harvard, which is established as the gateway to the establishment. Dang!

    The most realistic part of the movie was the school councilor giving terrible advice and then acting like it was the main character's fault for not already having everything figured out lol

  • Itza Mobster

    Besides the fact you know it didn’t say she wasn’t accepted to Harvard it said she was waitlisted meaning she was out in a wait list for the foreseeable future while they review the idk millions of applicants and is farther into being accepted than what it said she was earlier lmao

    OK but like how are prom proposals misogynistic and a part of the patriarchy??…. OH WAIT they’re not💀💀

    • Which Cache
      Which Cache Před 5 měsíci +139

      Decided to consider the sociopolitical implications of a "promposal" on a lark. Perhaps the idea is that because there's an expectation of guys asking girls out for prom, Mandy's suggesting that the girls being asked out are seen as prizes to be won over while the guys doing the asking out are having their social standing decided by whether or not they can succeed at finding a partner for the local promenade?...
      Obviously though, I think the actual answer is that the writers don't know how to write for a feminist character, and had her spout random buzzwords that don't connect with each other at the start of the movie to showcase her eventual turnaround by the end of the movie.

      The only good points about prom was whe she pointed out the way the guys didn't even care enough to do a promposal that was based on their girlfriends liking

    I, unironically, LOVE Two Dots lol. It’s one of my “airplane games”, but I have been playing it for years. Really love the music, too.
    Haven’t seen this movie, but very perplexed on the story and to being (refreshingly) adult.

    Two Dots actually is kinda fun. Winning/3 star potential is kinda RNG based sometimes. I don’t tend to do the extra modes, it feels like there’s a lot going on. But the base game is pretty fun

    i think this movie is quite better than most disney movies because they kept a platonic relationship platonic without making one of them gay .

      Agreed, Disney has a habit of pairing their leads together, so it's great to see them subvert expectations.

      Fr these days the main characters get together or one is over the top high voice always wearing a long tacky librarian skirt gay. Idc if ur gay or whatnot but Disney’s always trying to be woke 😭

      @CherryLee HartLey not really,Disney has a history of doing it sometimes,I don’t have anything wrong with it in my opinion it’s good rep but like at the same time it gets predictable slash repetitive to the point where it doesn’t seem genuine and it makes it seem more like they just snuck it in there to seem/feel good about themselves

    This seems like a nice movie to watch, it could be painfully relatable in my highschool years, but now it would be just depressingly funny. Maybe I would give it a shot someday, but knowing that the MC befriends a popular cool and handsome guy who has a deep gentle personality, gives me my darkest flashbacks... At least Mandy had a "good ending" with that dude, I'd be happy for her.

    I LOVED Phantom of the Megaplex... I know, random since you just mentioned it in passing but it was one of the best DCOMs!
    Also I cannot believe they actually did P in a V in a Dcom... its more like what actual teens talk about but not like its scripted lol

    OH ALSO- the reason for the turn in the 2010s was quite literally the creation of the “tween” category, it’s a very recent invention, literally created by the founder of justice when he realized 10-13 year old girls just followed the fads of older teens, and created a store that fit that untapped market, basically kids clothing that emulates teen “culture” and the same happened for media

    Honestly I was definitely expecting Mandy and Ben to fall in love with each other with a classic love triangle thing looking at the poster but I was mildly impressed they stayed best friends till the end
