Did you want to be the one who captured Alias Smith and Jones, or the Beast Master?Have you always wanted to be tied up like The Dukes of Hazzard, or Supernatural's Winchester brothers?Through the twin wonders of Netflix and You Tube, we recently rekindled our passion for this very specific art form.Some movies were just as awesome as we remembered, portraying male and female characters as equals in every way and showcasing kick-ass women that inspired us as awkward tweens.The fact of the matter is that there had been three HSM movies released before this, and Sharpay did not significantly evolve beyond her selfish ways over the course of the series.It would be unfitting if this canine-centric film with a single-star rating on Netflix was Sharpay’s fabulous feminist awakening. We wish there were a DCOM about Ryan’s coming-out process in college, but until then, this is somewhat tolerable.And, Priya says, the boogeyman in this film is “as ugly as the patriarchy,” so there’s that.Technically, this is a Wonderful World of Disney movie, but we are choosing to include it here because 1) it was continually played on Disney Channel during our youth, and 2) Justin Timberlake.

Even Johnny’s mother isn’t given much power, with her husband and her father-in-law running the show throughout the entirety of the film.
Two con artists and JERKS decide they can knock out Santa and deliver presents themselves on Christmas Eve. The only sensible people in this movie are the sister and the mom, and they are ignored left and right! The con artists end up getting away with their plot — I guess they “learn a lesson,” but do they actually?
This movie brought feminism back several years, which is especially disappointing after the glory of High School Musical, which was released a few months earlier, and the potential that Aly and AJ Michalka brought to Disney Channel.
