Why is anything Ryan Murphy touches so inauthentic? It all feels like a really poorly acted play. Glee, Ratched, Hollywood, The Politician... please stop funding this trash, someone.
What makes this movie even worse that it was created by queer women who apparently whole heartedly endorse the toxic heteronormative archetype/stereotype that is at the heart of their story. Was soooo repulsive.
They dropped the ball on the climax!!! And didn't show any real intimacy between the protagonist and her ‘great love' but they didn't die and were shown growing into old age together – that's always a plus! I am always grateful for some solid queer representation. Well acted, and pretty gorgeous, I just wish the climax paid off.
Terrible. Who wrote this? It is clear from the writing and storyline of this film that the creators have their own issues to resolve with their perception of 'fat' people. It's like the people who wrote this don't even think she is worthy of love or of the affection from that 'hot' guy. There's literally nothing wrong with her. She is beautiful, intelligent and talented. But we are thought to believe that she has such low self confidence that she would come up with this elaborate scheme? Seriously terrible film. It is a step back in terms of representations of women.
Soooo many problems with this one. I so wanted it to be decent. From referring to women in their sexual conquests as 'sluts,' to Alex Strangelove's best friend pulling out his penis to test whether Alex is gay, to a response that included 'maybe its just a phase,' to a general sense, both implicit and explicit, that gays are freaks, It's literally called 'Strangelove,' not to mention that absolute abhorrence the students who identify 'gender-queer' are regarded with. Then there is the last scene, where Alex is basically outed by his ex-girlfriend and shamed for not coming out right there and then by his love interest, Elliot. I'm pretty sure there is actual use of the word 'Retard' in there. It was rough stuff. Both my friend and I, who are gay, watched this movie and felt more shamed than ever.
