I thought the writer too precious for words. She can't get out of the small circle she runs with. I bet she can't imagine women enjoying kung fu movies, either (ftr: I =love= kung fu movies.)

But I've found this to be a problem with NYT reviewers of all things -- they think themselves so experienced, broad-minded, cosmopolitan... and don't realize that they've got a very restrictive social experience and have no clue what large numbers of people think.

It's fine if they had a bit of humility about how their own thoughts can generalize. I have no problem if they left it at: "Well, this is my opinion, and this is why" rather than trying to rope in countless others.
