  • Hate Dumb: Anyone that tries to argue that the film has a Dumb Is Good message.
  • Unfortunate Implications: Jenny's near-endlessly miserable life, as well as the general Dumb Is Good theme, makes the film a Reactionary Fantasy of sorts that encourages people to go with the flow and do as they're told instead of trying to seize their own destinies and change the system, as she tried to.

Wow, that's not nice.

Hate Dumb has been deleted for insulting another editor.
