Yeah, I might have watched a movie and gotten kind of mad.
This is seriously a trope I’d love to never see again though.
A nice visual representation of why I’m SO tired of the “talentless schlub saves the day” plot in action and genre movies.
I wouldn’t mind it so much if it was all about winning by working your ass off, giving credit to others where credit is due, and learning to be part of a team (and the times when that particular plot has worked for me, it’s usually been in that context — there are certainly movies I like that utilize the trope).
I wouldn’t mind it nearly so much if talentless, out-of-shape girl schlubs got to star in action movies and save the day too.
But in general, I’ve basically hit the NOPE point on it.
