ethically bankrupt, misogynistic garbage

no one of any age should watch this. (kids didn't, wish I didn't) I guess there's a critique on capitalism in there somewhere but it's glamorizing elder abuse and there is no character that isn't horrible. the whole thing feels like it was written/directed by a man (it was) who saw #girlboss trending, doesn't know many women but decided to capitalize on it.

This title has:

Too much violence
Too much consumerism
