“Erin Brockovich For Fascists”

That's Chris Kelly's term for Zero Dark Thirty. He has a more familiar critique of the movie than some:

Zero Dark Thirty contains:

The scene where our heroine arrives at the office with high hopes but gets a crummy desk in a crappy corner. The scene where she wants to do something but the boss gives her a Huge File of Things to do first. The scene where she steps on another woman's toes… but then they become friends. The scene where she tells her boss if she doesn't get to follow her gut she's going over his head. The scene where she goes to the big meeting but doesn't get to sit at the table… but speaks up anyway!

I'm not saying these things didn't happen in real life. I'm just saying they also happened in Legally Blonde II.
