Shout out to the movie Rough Night for having a very sweet and realistic queer couple that wasn’t used as a joke(it’s a comedy but the fact that they were queer was never the joke) who were two completely normal girls who dated in college and broke up but were still chill with each other and ended up back together in a really sweet way.
Not to mention one of them was definitely bisexual as she married and had a kid with a man but then separated and in between getting back with her old gf has sex with a woman and talks about it like it was a beautiful thing and no one else in the movie is like ‘eww gross’ (it’s played a little for laughs because she had to sleep with a weird couple to get a security video, but the fact that it was gay is never the joke and the sex was consensual) like these two queer women were main characters and the fact that they are queer is just accepted and never played as weird or a joke and they end up happy and alive and like I was living in the cinema.
Like it was so normalized and real that I didn’t even realised that ‘oh wow look at this top-notch queer rep until later because it didn’t even question it?? This is was good rep looks like people.
On top of that it totally subverts all gender roles cause the main character is running for state senate and is clearly the ‘bread winner’ in her home and she and her friends(all girls) are the ones having a crazy, wild bachelorette party weekend in Miami while doing drugs and getting into trouble and the GUYS are have a wine-tasting and then play yahtzee at home and are decidedly more traditionally ‘feminine’ and emotional.
And sex work/stripping isn’t seen as like a weird/shameful career and the guy stripper is just a normal dude.
Not to mention that there is a lot of comedy about how broken the american judicial system is and Florida is the butt of a lot of jokes since Florida sucks? (They get a gun pulled on them for spoiler-y reasons and the Australian chick is like “Everyone in america really does have a gun!”)
And all of the girls have like character development and some of it is really heartfelt and sweet?
Like this was honestly a good movie and I would def recommend it.
