Amy Schumer and Lena Dunham To Make a ‘Body-Positive’ Barbie Movie | Extended Play

Fit-Shaming is back with a vengeance as Amy Schumer is reported to portray Barbie in the upcoming live-action adaptation of the franchise, co-created with controversial feminist writer Lena Dunham and producer Amy Pascal (of Fembusters fame). LaughingMan, CineMax, and Katie BBW congregate at the roundtable to deliberate the inevitable injection (infestation?) of toxic political ideologies into what’s meant to be a benign comedy for all ages as well as the perennial double standard applied to ‘corpulent’ performers of both genders.

Amy Schumer to Play ‘Big Is Beautiful’ Barbie? “#YOUGOGIRL! Looks don’t matter! It’s what on the inside that counts!”

Jonah Hill to (hypothetically) play Dadbod He-Man? “BWAHAHAH! GET THE FUCK OUTTA HERE…”

  1. SONY’s movie division is so incompetent. From trashing Genndy Tartavosky’s POPEYE in favor of an Emoji movie, making bland remakes of beloved movies (Total Recall and Robocop), hiring Tom Rothman (who seriously should not still have a job after all he has done), and allow him to greenlight a bunch of sequels and reboots that look like they are set to fail (http://www.boxofficemojo.com/schedule/?view=distributor&id=sony.htm), trying to compete with Marvek using properties that don’t warrant a cinematic universe (GHOSTBUSTERS, Spiderman by himself, the plans for a crossover between the 21 Jump Street movies and Men In Black) while ignoring the properties that they could actually make into big franchises (He-man), to allowing Amy Pascal to continue to put politics over business with this Barbie movie.
    At this rate I wouldn’t be surprised if SONY’s movie division goes bankrupt in a few years.

      • I want SONY to crash & burn so badly. Trust me, after what happened with Popeye and the way Genndy Tartakovsky was treated by the execs at SONY, we are all toasting for SONY to fall of their big fat fucking heels and witness their slimy organs explode into oblivion. But no, they’re gonna make so much money with Homecoming, Angry Birds 2 & The Emoji Movie while continuing to screw over artistic integrity like many other studios love to do.
