    Fun fact: my parents named me after Tyler Durden. Thanks mom and dad for naming me after one of the most badass mentally ill terrorists in cinematic history!

    What is the point of this movie? What message is Lena Dunham trying to convey to the audience? Don’t cheat? Sex is bad, but also good sometimes? If you’re going to make a movie about the most unlikeable girl on the planet who makes every wrong decision known to man, at least give her some sort of character to…

    How many servers of ten year olds screaming racial slurs while wearing sexualized fnaf avatars do you think the director had to go through before finding these nice communities of people who just want to learn how to dance?
