Why stop with an all-male re-reboot of the all-lady Ghostbusters? Here are 20 more dude-ified versions of female-centric films

You may have already heard the news: the upcoming Ghostbusters reboot with women in the lead roles — which caused such consternation amongst the douchebags of the world when it was recently announced — is going to be followed up with another Ghostbusters featuring dudes at the helm once again.

No, really.

Deadline spoke to Ghostbusters mastermind Ivan Reitman, who is forming a new production company with Dan Aykroyd to explore the wondrous new branding opportunities that lie in wait:

We want to expand the Ghostbusters universe in ways that will include different films, TV shows, merchandise, all things that are part of modern filmed entertainment … This is a branded entertainment … .

This is obviously going to be amazing. What, after all, is more hilarious than branded entertainment?

But why stop here? Clearly it is an injustice to the world’s men EVERY time women star in films that should rightfully belong completely to dudes, like everything else in the world.

So here are 20 more dude-ified “reboots” of films with female leads.

  1. The Brotherhood of the Traveling Bag of Dirty Laundry

  2. The Wizard of Oz, But Like that HBO Series This Time

  3. Whip It Out

  4. Frozen Entree

  5. The Hungry Man TV Dinner Games

  6. The Hungry Man Games: Lighting Farts

  7. Larry Croft: Fridge Raider

  8. Charlie’s Charlies

  9. Bridesdudes

  10. The Devil Wears Axe Body Spray

  11. Winter’s Boner

  12. Girl Interrupted, Constantly, by Dudes Explaining Shit to Her

  13. The Artist Formerly Known As Prince Diaries

  14. Alpha Male-ficent

  15. All About Evel Knievel

  16. Iron Man-gnolias

  17. Fred’s Green Tomatoes

  18. Ernie Brockovich

  19. Norman Rae

  20. Sex and Them Titties

Any other suggestions? Or does anyone want to make a movie poster for one of these?

NOTE: Yes, I am terrible at Photoshop.

Doesn’t really count as a woman-heavy film being turned into a man-heavy film, but I’ve got to mention “The Sour Grapes of Wrath”, cause that title just sums up the MGTOW so well.

@ParadoxicalIntention: Channing Tatum has experience as a stripper outside of Magic Mike too 😉

THIS JUST IN: Court orders Robin Thicke and Pharell to pay 7.3 million dollars to Martin Gaye’s family for copyright infringement because the song “Blurred Lines” copied Martin Gaye’s song “Got to Give it Up” in terms of tune.

Gaye’s family is super stoked, and so am I.

(I couldn’t decide which one I liked more for this situation, but I’m happy enough to use both.)

Keke’s Delivery Service. Your packages get delivered by this guy.

OMG, you made me flashback to 1980s. :O

My suggestion?

@Paradoxical

That’s great news!

Good news: Plans are in motion to make it so Blurred Lines will no longer be sold, and the music industry will take this lesson on going forward.

Bad news: The song’s already made over 16 million dollars, and between the two of them, Thick and Pharell got ten million. >_<+

As a fan of that show: It’s already like that. It’s gotten to the point where my friends and I who like the show no longer call ourselves “bronies”, and we don’t associate with the fanbase anymore.

Seven HB10’s for Seven Dudebros

Mantasia

Boy Story

The Slob*

Romeo and Juliet and Rosaline

*oops, how did that get in there?

I know, I’m a fan of the show too, and it just embarrasses me how technically adult people try to dictate a kids’ show with their desires and whims over those of the kids. That’s fucked up.

Also, how some of the guys who discovered the show behave like they have somehow “saved” it and “invented” the entire pony culture and how edgy and influential they are.

Umm, dude, I was already a fan in 1980s and I already played with my ponies in a same fashion as Lauren Faust did, and so did all my girly-girl friends; dude, could you not.

“and the media jumped on the idea of male people in a Ghostbusters movie as being a correction back to the status quo because sexism.”

Status bro.

I never got the Channing Tatum thing. Change that to Alexander Sarsgaard and I’m in!

Soooo much yes there! And yeah, what I’ve seen of MLP is great, but the non-child fans can be off putting. Sad, that.

…anyone have that princess pony graphic again? I need cheering up now 😛

I got nothin’, but all the princess movies wouldn’t be prince movies because it’s okay for male protagonists to just be men, while female protagonists, on the other hand, have to be something more than just women. If anything, the princesses would turn into Kings.

(Wow, commas much.)

Don’t forget the movies made from classic novels with women as protagonists.
Manfeels Park
Emmet (Emma)
Clued-In (Clueless, a remake of Emma)
James Eyre
Vincent (Villette)
Shelby (Shirley)

Carmillo? Oh, wait. The MRM would probably rather watch lesbian vampires than gay male vampires.

Do you think manospherians would like Lolito? If the predator was Humberta the sexy teacher? Probably. MRAs talk about male victims when they’re trying to derail the conversation away from female victims, but as we all know, they’re always mysteriously missing when there’s a story about a boy being victimized by his teacher. They’d probably miss the point of a gender flipped version too.

I like the classic ones, and will add

Sherman Valentine
Murgatroyd’s Divorce (Muriel’s Wedding)

I’d like to see both of those for different reasons. Would they have the integrity to turn Jane the Feminist from Shirley Valentine into John the MGTOW and let him backslide similarly? And who would be chosen as the musical substitute for ABBA? (Shoes?)
