Men and women should wear the same sort of clothes (?)

FANS are up in arms over the first pictures to emerge from the new Jumanji reboot, starring Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson, Jack Black, Karen Gillan and Kevin Hart, with many branding the movie “sexist”.

Hart took to Instagram to rave about how great the chemistry is between the stars in the remake of Robin Williams’ 1995 original movie, but ended up attracting major backlash over the difference between the men’s outfits and Gillan’s.

In the on-set picture, the males are seen in commando-style outdoor wear, while Gillan is wearing wildly impractical short-shorts, a crop top, and knee-high boots — hardly sensible for running through the jungle.

Johnson quickly jumped into the commentary underneath Hart’s picture, explaining that it’s not how it looks. “Her jungle wardrobe will make sense when you know the plot,” he wrote. “Trust me.”

But fans were still up in arms, with some even threatening to boycott the movie.

“All the guys are dressed for the jungle,” one person commented. “Except the girl who’s dressed like she’s in the beginning of an adult film. If the girl’s going to dress like that, pass. I have two young girls.”


Note that the black guy is also wearing shorts.  Doesn't he count?

More lefty crap. If everyone followed their ideals the movie industry would collapse.

The black guy may be wearing shorts but it's hardly comparable with the "sexy" outfit of the woman!

One wonders why Hollywood would do this sort of thing in the first place.

Oh, wait....

Jumanji needs a "reboot"? Or is this more of Hollywood trying to repeat past successes because they've utterly lost all their imagination?

(Hint: Whiners and other losers have only enough imagination to imagine insults being made toward themselves).

Where is the political correctness that the wankers in Hollywood seek to impose on mainstream society? Oh, that's right they are exempt from social opinion that seek to impose on others.

Did you ever watch the Crocodile Hunter shows? Steve Irwin's attractive wife, Terri is covered from neck to foot, while Steve is usually wearing his short trousers and short sleeve shirts. I never heard any complaints about that.
