Hello anti-trans bigotry.*  I know what movie I’ll gladly avoid feeding with my dollars.
*Get it? “It ain’t pretty” because she has an adams apple!  And a penis!  And that means she’s really a he!  And hes can’t be pretty!  Hahahaha… ha… FAIL.

Comedy, at the expense of people. 

I think ‘Jill’ is probably supposed to be a cis woman in the context of the movie. But ‘HURR DURR, ADAM SANDLER IN DRAG’ is the main joke here, so it could still be considered transphobic. I don’t see how anyone over the age of seven would be interested in this, anyway.

why is adam sandler

I saw like five of these posters at every subway stop in Manhattan, and I had the same thoughts with their use of the word “it.” Highly offensive.

Yes. I’ve been trying to figure out exactly what it was that was really bugging me about this movie (aside from the fact that it looks REALLY bad). You’ve all said what I was thinking but couldn’t quite put into words.
ETA: For some reason when I save this afunnyfeminist’s comment doesn’t show up. That comment is that their use of “it” is also offensive.
