Hi fans of PASEF!! I posted this as a discussion item earlier today on the PASEF Facebook page, and I thought it would be interesting to see what you have to say. :)

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


Have any fans of PASEF seen "Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist"?

In the film, Norah (a normal-sized, beautiful girl played by Kat Dennings) often compares herself to a very underweight girl named Tris (played by Alexis Dziena). Norah says several things throughout the movie, to Nick and (if I remember correctly) other characters to express that she is bigger than Tris. To me, this seemed like she was comparing herself to Tris and was disappointed by being a larger size. Did anyone else feel this way?

Do you think this movie sent the message that being a normal-sized woman (i.e. not teeny-tiny thin) is bad? Or do you think, because Norah was one of the awesome main characters, that the movie was promoting healthy bodies by having its main character (the one you root for) be a healthy woman?

I'd love to hear what you all think about this - all opinions welcome! :)
