I watched it on a date recently
It wasn't nearly as good as the first one, but it was still enjoyable. It was a film you could actually tell the crew had fun making which is a nice change of pace.
The stakes were much smaller but at least it tried to avoid a lot of cliches despite bringing them up or made jokes of the ones they used.
I'd watch it again; I want to watch it again.>>120051501
Honestly, unlike a lot of 'girl power' stuff which I usually despise, it didn't feel too forced. Which is funny with how much focus there was on it. It just felt like the Grandma was telling a story about her past and trying to relive her glory days.
Like, it wasn't about 'girls are better than boys' - they even included Thonk. And they never said something like, "Only girls could do this!"
Even in the Avengers with the girl power scene not outright saying it, it still felt forced. This was authentic with why the majority female cast was the focus when 90% of the guys were in another location. Then they even made a joke to include the guys into it, which revolved around their own joke.
It's like the body positivity with Eep. Usually it's like, "These flaws make me a better and stronger woman UwU!", but here it was like, "Oh, I like to have fun, and here are all my story marks." And they used it as a joke and a plot-device multiple times. And they still have her have other flaws, like still stinky or refusing to remain kempt in her appearance, among others.
If anything, if you're gonna try to tackle these agendas, I'd say this is a good example of what to do.
