* UnfortunateImplications: As [[WebVideo/TheNostalgiaChick Lindsay Ellis]] explains [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FnyHa_o0Yvw in her review]], the film is not kind to women ''or'' men. When Nick first gets his powers, most of the women he encounters are shallow stereotypes whose think about stereotypical female things -- make-up, dating, dieting, sex, etc.[[note]]and the lone black woman Nick meets is a SassyBlackWoman who compares his ass to Shaft. Because black people.[[/note]] Then Nick actually gets to know a few of the women in his life and does a complete one-eighty, telling a male co-worker that men are cheaters and liars who all have penis envy. To say nothing that most of the men in the film are horny misogynists who only see women as sex objects.
