Interesting submitted by Xris on June 11, 2021, 9:38pm I think I may have missed some jokes by not having seen some of the movies that she reviewed. But I liked the feminist lens that she used to analyze the movies. (Was reading it at my middle school, so had to put a sticky note over the first word in the title, though.) I'd like to read more of her books.

Funny submitted by Zekicmom on June 14, 2021, 12:28pm I won't spoil it by saying what the author's rating system is for movies, but it is original and amusing. An overall entertaining book. You will either get the references or you won't, she doesn't explain many, and I know I missed some because of my age. Surprisingly, it didn't seem to make a difference that I hadn't seen all the movies she reviewed.

Hilarious submitted by emeloche on June 14, 2021, 9:31pm Lindy White is delightful! Obviously, having seen the movies makes the essays funnier, but White is a good enough writer to make them amusing even for those who haven't seen them.

Very funny submitted by mbleed on July 20, 2021, 7:46pm Amusing, I laughed all thew way through this gem.
