WONDER WOMAN 2009 DISCUSSION

  • We're...not fans of this movie, which stars Keri Russell as Diana and Nathan Fillion as Steve Trevor.
  • This is a movie in which Etta Candy is a svelte extra who exists entirely to be a Catty Office Bitch.
  • Steve Trevor only stops making things about his boner when he has an opportunity to whine about women ignoring nice guys like him for "bad boys" like Ares.
  • Diana learns an important lesson in Chivalry: It's Not So Bad After All, Why Do You Have To Be Such A Bitch About It?
Yes, this is Etta Candy.
