Amy Schumer and Lena Dunham To Make a ‘Body-Positive’ Barbie Movie | Extended Play
Fit-Shaming is back with a vengeance as Amy Schumer is reported to portray Barbie in the upcoming live-action adaptation of the franchise, co-created with controversial feminist writer Lena Dunham and producer Amy Pascal (of Fembusters fame). LaughingMan, CineMax, and Katie BBW congregate at the roundtable to deliberate the inevitable injection (infestation?) of toxic political ideologies into what’s meant to be a benign comedy for all ages as well as the perennial double standard applied to ‘corpulent’ performers of both genders.

Jonah Hill to (hypothetically) play Dadbod He-Man? “BWAHAHAH! GET THE FUCK OUTTA HERE…”
