Hi Smooches! We’re back and we’re kicking off spooky season with an in-depth analysis of “Don’t Worry Darling.” We go to some dark corners of the Internet to learn about cultural themes we spotted in the movie, including alpha males and tradwives. We discuss the successes and failures of the movie in getting its message across, and conclude that the movie isn’t as bad as the media hoopla made it out to be, but isn’t as clever as it thinks it was. Spoilers ahead!
