I refer not to Clemmensen's review, but rather to his summary of the film. I have no time for Divergent myself - it's clumsy, derivative, and relies on the main character being a Special Snowflake, JUST LIKE YOU, READER!

With that in mind, don't take me as a fanboy when I say that Clemmensen is aiming for irreverent snark and hitting misguided sexism. I couldn't count on ten pairs of hands the number of times I've seen movies for teens dismissed as "teen angst". More importantly:

"Logical fallacies abound once again, but if you're a teenage girl, who cares?"

If you don't see the misogyny there then idek what to say to you.

Have you looked at the teenage girls at the mall these days? Their fatty gut mass is 5 times the size of their brains.

It's more of a knock against teenagers than women.
