I admit that I am wary of “chick flicks,” and this one certainly did have its male-bashing moments, but overall, this movie only condemned the two-dimensionally evil male characters, not the entire male gender.

It is interesting to note that this female movie revenge is productive; the main characters’ desire to “get even” is funneled into a positive action. If it were men seeking revenge against other men, the result would be a bullet and a grunt of satisfaction.
