What is pop media doing? Movie review- "The Switch"

Reddit View

For those who haven't seen it, it's almost worth watching just to study the main character to see a list of everything you should never do.

I'll start at the beginning. The main character is a guy who's in love with but friend-zoned by the main girl character. Because he's been friend-zoned, he resorts to denial about his love- to everybody around him including himself.

The girl speaks candidly with her girlfriends basically saying what a nice guy he is, he's perfect! She literally says "I'm sure there's someone out there for him!"

The first 99% of the movie was painful to watch. If there was a setup for a good red pill movie, this is it.

She decides that the clock is ticking and she needs a baby but can't wait around for Mr. Right, so she decides to get donated sperm and do it herself.

The main character, of course, objects to the idea. The objection is from his gut, he can't tell why he's so upset. I mean, if they're just friends, why should this bother him? Nevertheless here he is totally frustrated and completely clueless why and what to do.

And that right there is the blue pill. A perfect description. This woman walks all over him, and he is too chicken-shit to even admit to himself that he likes her! No wonder she's not interested!

I have an interesting analysis of the woman's actions. Throughout the movie she spends a lot of time speaking with her friends about this decision to go fatherless on the baby. Her friends respond with "you go girl, we don't need no stinkin' men!!!"

It's interesting because this is a classic example of a woman who rode the cock carousel and experienced what we've documented here. An inability to be happy with men. Every single cock she took inflated her ego and expectation just that much more, she would never be able to settle down now. She's skipping the middle man and just going straight for the baby. This is basically the poster-child for the feminists our culture has been breeding.

It's documented in our media. The truth behind the red and blue pill are everywhere. It's obvious to us now, but the media makers have a trick up their sleeve to hide it.

The entire movie makes sense until the end. Everything she does, and every way the man fails makes sense. He supplicates her at every turn. Even becomes best friends with her new son. He does everything right... to be a nice guy. And she's not attracted to him in the least.

The twist is unimportant to the movie. He swaps the donor's sperm with his own out of sheer frustration. When she finds out, she rightly kicks him out of her life.

Here's where they do the magic. In the last five minutes of the movie, she shows up outside of main guy's workplace. He asks, why are you here? Where's your boyfriend/husband? She replies, "I turned him down. I don't know why..."

He looks at her like.. what?

She goes.. "I guess I turned him down cause he's not you!"

He gets this giant shit eating grin on his face and they kiss. The end.

Except not the fucking end! Hold on a god damned second! That's ridiculous. She had an off-camera change of heart that didn't make sense. There was no way for that to happen. Main guy didn't man-up or do anything. She eventually came to the realization that he's the one for her cause he's so nice???

That's what they do. A 99% red pill movie (so you identify with it, you can feel yourself in the characters), and then this crazy blue pill ending where the hard work of mr nice guy pays off?

This kind of nice-guy re-enforcement is terrible and erodes at my soul. Had to get this off my chest.

She had an off-camera change of heart that didn't make sense.

Part II of the Switch is were you see that she comes in, saying she loves him, but then switch it to wanting alimony. Perfectly coherent sequel, and still fits with the title.

The switch II : Daddy's paying.

From IMDB:

While she is looking to get Roland (the sperm donor) more involved in their lives, Wally can't help but notice the many striking similarities that he and Sebastian share.

Com'on, he's 7, why the hell you think she's coming back? Someone HAS to pay.

A real blue pill movie would show a woman falling for the nice guy immediately, wouldn't it?

[–]Modredpillschool[S] 2 points3 points  (1 child) | Copy

No, they'd need to show guys that you can only find love after proving yourself worthy.

I see what you mean.

From IMDB:

Kassie (Jennifer Aniston) and Wally (Jason Bateman) are best friends. Being unlucky in love, Kassie has decided to have a child using artificial insemination. Wally doesn't like this idea, but he isn't capable of admitting to himself, let alone to Kassie, that he's in love with her. At Kassie's artificial insemination party, Wally gets very drunk and spies the sperm donor's sample in the bathroom. Wally was way too drunk to know what he did that night, and Kassie has moved away because she doesn't feel that New York City is a place to raise a child. Now 7 years later, Kassie has moved back with her son Sebastian. While she is looking to get Roland (the sperm donor) more involved in their lives, Wally can't help but notice the many striking similarities that he and Sebastian share.

That sounds like a big turd of a movie. Why would you even watch it??

I also force myself to watch childrens shows. I do it as a study of our culture.

[–]underskewer0 points1 point  (2 children) | Copy

A lot of children's shows are pretty good.

[–]Modredpillschool[S] 0 points1 point  (1 child) | Copy

Not the ones geared towards women. Look at Bratz.

[–]underskewer0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Didn't know they had a TV show. Powerpuff Girls was alright, though.

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (3 children) | Copy

why does she want thr sperm donor in the kids life? i thought as a sperm donor you stay out of the lifes of the kids...

[–]Modredpillschool[S] -1 points0 points  (2 children) | Copy

Because at the end of the day, the boy needs a father.

[–][deleted] 2 points3 points  (1 child) | Copy

she shouldnt have used a donor then dont you think?

[–]Modredpillschool[S] 1 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy

Don't let that logic cloud your judgement! lol

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

For a more realistic look at sperm donors see the documentary Donor Unknown. The guy might have been alpha however, he donated 500 times. yes 500 times! trailer here

yeah all mmovies depicting "love" these days are 99% totally bullshit because they are aimed at women. Hollywood gives the people what it wants and so if the women and AFC betas who go see this film are entertained then thats what happens. This is exactly the same as when i watch remember the titans and cry because its a beautiful sports story where they overcome racism so yeah dont get too hung up on this just remember that you are better than these beta movie nice guys

An inability to be happy with men

Holy. Shit. This explains a lot to me

You can kill a man, but you can't kill an idea.
