“Exploring Apatow and Rogen’s Schlubby Non-Misogyny”

Film School Rejects looks at the Judd Apatow’s comedies: “Apatow is not a denialist of misogyny within society. In fact, if you read the many personal #YesAllWomen anecdotes—all of his films verify that sad reality in a non-condoning, often vilifying way. Through non-traditional heroes, he navigates his audience to a hopeful future.With personal, transformational films comes the expectation of reality. Characters who grow out of objectifying mindsets and characters who have avoided those ideologies without hatred. It is apparent that a hatred from within is the reasoning for these actions and not the actions of women in particular. Ignoring pubescent wish fulfillment,  the lovable losers of Apatow’s films are still men who must figure out their flaws before gaining the true, romantic love many hope to achieve.”
