    Of course, not only is it a wonderfully funny and overall great movie, but it also carries a powerful message about female empowerment and how difficult it can be to navigate the world as a woman.

    As @franny.pac astutely observes, the irony is not lost on her when a man exclaims, ‘You’re all doing amazing’, in a theater brimming with women absorbed in the scene. This action inadvertently shifts the focus to him, albeit with supportive intentions.

    "a teenage boy kept talking during the quiet parts and the whole monologue he kept saying 'Its not that deep'"
    While other women had to deal with men making noises during the monologue:
    "in mine a guy went 'AWWWW' very sarcastically when she finished and you could physically feel in t he air that he'd ruined it for everyone."

    "a guy yawned in the middle of her speech at mine"

    "a guy burped loudly in the middle of that scene in my theatre"

    "there was a guy who audibly sighed behind me during her monologue"
