Heather Graham has proven that every woman in Hollywood also happens to be an opportunist. According to Heather, her new romantic comedy “Half Magic” couldn’t have hit theaters at a better time. Ever since sexual harassment started to trend most women will pay attention to anything that remotely smells like the shaming of men for their misogynistic ways and alleged sexual misdeeds. And for Heather that means her movie can now use relevance as a selling point because who really wanted to see another romantic comedy.
While talking to Jimmy Kimmel Monday night about the the Feb. 23 release that covers “bad dating, harassment and sexism,” she joked, “All this sexual harassment worked out great for me.
“Her new movie is based on her previous relationships and negative dating experiences. Graham said the comedy has “a sexual harassment plot”…”I kind of had to combine a lot of different harassment [experiences] into one,” she said. “I feel like some of the guys that are getting on these charges, they’re like, ‘I never did that.’ Do you think they really don’t think they did that?”
The RC genre follows the same blueprint every film. We get it, girls fart and can be just as gross as men. Throw in a “hilarious” scene about someone else finding the female protagonist’s personal massager and suddenly you have an empowering chick flick. If cuckold relationship research is a thing there needs to be a study done that 100% of tampon jokes have never been and never will be funny. Taking advantage of the MeToo sickness that’s spreading throughout Hollywood seems slightly tacky. Very “Rose McGowanish.” But kudos to her for striking while the iron is hot. Maybe this film will breathe new life into the MeToo movement like The Birth of a Nation did way back when. Female supremacist dressed in all black like they were in January lynching the reputation of every man on sight.
