The guy sells his action figure collection (which is cool af btw) to get 500K so that he can finance a wedding ceremony (?), become ''serious'' (whatever the **** that means?) and have The Sex.

Tell me why that film isn't complete rubbish. I hear ya.

No.
I don't view spending 500k on a wedding as a toxic sterotype.

Films that promote any stereotypes, funny racism, or any controversial subjects are becoming rarer every day

I think it is a pretty funny film and people that complain about these things are those who are making the entertainment industry dry

I totally understand if it isn't your cup of tea but I really don't see the need to complain about it

Because let's be honest here.... your using the fact that it promotes stereotypes simply to express the fact that you dislike this kind of humor...

Basically, collecting action figures means you are not ''mature'' and the time must come when you will have to sell your collection, renounce your hobbies and become more basic than ketchup and chips -- all in order to get laid.

Obviously, I hope, he didn't actually throw the entire 500K for the wedding ceremony but definitely part of that went into it as it was luxurious AF and he was a lower middle class kind of guy.

I am completely in favour of Hollywood people making **** films, I am against censorship and the PC culture in general.

That doesn't mean I won't think the film is utter ********.

don't movies usually tend to stereotype?

I mean why else does Melissa McCarthy always get funny roles?
