Don’t Worry Darling Review: A Great Cinematic Failure In #MeToo Entertainment

The Me Too movement is one of the biggest cultural scams of the 21st Century.

Warner Bros

Hollywood, the birthplace of cultural immorality convinced the world that they were the champion of women’s rights after a guy who they protected for 3 decades got exposed as a violent sexual predator.

Olivia Wilde, a friend of Harvey Weinstein who was used to entrap some of those women into his abusive behavior is now propped up by Hollywood as a feminist icon aka a false God for women.

But like everything that comes out of Hollywood, this narrative is fiction.

Warner Bros

Olivia Wilde has a long reputation for being an insufferable individual. One of the worst kept open secrets in the business began to fall apart when Wilde was served child custody papers during CinemaCon when trying to promote this movie.

Things only got worse from there. Wilde was later caught in a lie about actor Shia LaBeouf’s exit from the project and he isn’t the only person involved with this film who has a problem with her.

The star of this film, Florence Pugh has spent the last few months avoiding all contact with Wilde who directed the film. Their beef started on set with the fallout of the LaBeouf situation, then things escalated on set when the two had a shouting match over Wilde’s constant tardiness and her behind-the-scenes relationship with her co-star Harry Styles.

Warner Bros

The same woman who befriended a man who used his position of power to sleep with high-profile actresses is using her position of power to sleep with high-profile actors. This led Pugh to borderline refuse to promote the film which caused Wilde’s split from actor Jason Sudeikis.

Warner Bros is down so bad from dealing with the Ezra Miller and Amber Heard mess, that ‘Don’t Worry Darling’ is one of the last two films of 2022 that they can afford to promote.

They bumped Shazam 2 off the 2022 schedule so that they could promote this dumpster fire of a project.

‘Don’t Worry Darling’ is a film set in the town of Victory, California in the 1950s. Alice Chambers (Pugh) and Jack Chambers (Styles) are a young couple living a great small-town life. Alice is a stay-at-home wife and Jack works for a mysterious company on the secret “Victory Project” that is classified to the wives of the town.

Life is a utopia for the couple but when another couple in their Cul-de-sac begins to have marriage troubles, cracks then begin to form in Victory and things get worse when Alice decides to ask questions about what her husband is doing on the victory project. Questions that get the attention of Jack’s boss Frank (Chris Pine) who doesn’t take to dissidence.

‘Don’t Worry Darling’ is a film strategically set in the 1950s. Because in the minds of intersectional progressive feminists, the worst time for women in the history of the United States was the 50s.

A time when women didn’t have to work 60 hours a week to afford a rundown apartment. A time when women listened to Patsy Cline and not Megan Thee Stallion. A time when women dressed like someone you wanted to marry and not twerking on Tik Tok.

Warner Bros

The only responsibility a woman had in the 50s was being a mother and a husband and because of that feminists have spent the last 70 years convincing women that they were miserable.

Olivia Wilde along with her screenwriter Katie Silberman attempts to tell the story about how weak men have a desire to control women. The core of the story revolves around the antagonist of the film Frank played by Chris Pine who Olivia Wilde admitted was based on psychologist Jordan Peterson.

Pine plays an over-the-top villain who uses the not-so-subtle message that men are the ones in control of their society. Pine as a villain does nothing but deliver a few lines of ominous warnings in the face of Alice’s threats, but his character is rendered pointless by the film’s conclusion.

Warner Bros

For a film with a 2-hour runtime, ‘Don’t Worry Darling’ comes off as a two-part episode of The Twilight Zone which runs out of steam. The film makes a baseline effort to make you believe that this is taking place in the 1950s, so when we get to the film’s big reveal, it is hardly a surprise.

Just like any mystery film, the premise of the movie relies on the effectiveness of its reveal and by the end of this, you will be begging for an M. Night Shyamalan twist. The twist is so absurd and impractical, you will laugh as a coping mechanism against the reality that you just wasted 2 hours of your life.

Florence Pugh is a good actress but the character that she plays makes a number of character-related stupid mistakes to the point that you lose any sympathy for her.

Warner Bros

A lot has been made about Harry Styles’ behind-the-scenes relationship/affair with the director. However, Styles was the better choice for the role over Shia LaBeouf. That’s not to say that a better actor could have done a better job, but we all know why Styles was chosen in the first place.

The MeToo movement has paved the way for a multitude of films over the last few years that just repeat the same misandrist message, Men controlling everything is bad and everything would be so much better if we just let women be in charge.

‘Don’t Worry Darling’ is a film that tries to magnify that message in front of a camera, but behind the camera proves why that notion is nothing more than a feminist pipedream.

Warner Bros

If this movie was good, people could turn a blind eye to all the behind-the-scenes turmoil, instead ‘Don’t Worry Darling’ wins the award for the biggest cinematic failure of 2022.
