22 Jump Street : So Jonah Hill punching a girl is funny because????

So Jonah Hill punching a girl is funny because????

In the trailer they show Jonah Hill punching a girl as hard as he can. I'm no feminist but that clearly was not funny. Why is it suddenly ok for this to be a joke?

Re: So Jonah Hill punching a girl is funny because????

It's funny because that's something you don't see usually in real life.
It catches you off guard.
An absurd thing to watch, and therefore funny.
I mean, we know we're not supposed to do it, but seeing it acted out in a movie, an "escape from reality" it makes us laugh

Re: So Jonah Hill punching a girl is funny because????

If I wanted to watch women get punched in the face I'd watch a horror movie because it's not funny.

If you need this as a comedic escape from reality you have issues.

I think it is funny. Would be nice if we see more of this.

Re: So Jonah Hill punching a girl is funny because????

I guess you'd prefer that women stay home, barefoot and pregnant. Some of us progressives believe in 'equal pay for equal work'. And if that work is punching a guy in the face, then they have the right to be punched in the face. As long as the pay is equal (or commensurate with their placement in the credits).

Re: So Jonah Hill punching a girl is funny because????

Watch the movie. You have only seen a clip from the trailer. Criticizing a movie over a clip from a trailer is one of the dumbest thing a movie critic could do.

You are so agitated and scared of seeing a girl being punch from a clip.

Spoiler
The girl is a criminal. She even shot a cop. Jonah hill fought w/ her and failed miserably where she whooped his ass. They even imitated Brad pitt and angelina jolie's film mr. and mrs. smith fight in a funny awkward way. Jonah even became a hostage by that girl. And was rescued by another woman.


So you are saying that a scene where a guy is being bullied by a woman in an awkward way is not something to be laugh at and can be categorized as a "horror movie"?

I guess you don't know the difference between a horror/suspense film and a comedy film.

"escape from reality" it makes us laugh


Brain dead idiots run rampant in 'reality', this is not escapism.

Re: So Jonah Hill punching a girl is funny because????

The context helps make it funny, just knowing going into that scene that the whole setting is kind of slapstick and the two going at it are silly.

She's already made fun of him, crudely, talking down to him in earlier scenes. She's a drug dealing muppet.
And she hits him first. Hard.

So yeah it's not something you'd see in real life but that's not what makes it funny so much as the two of them already being comic characters in their own way and then going at a physical scene in the unexpected way. It plays off his character being inept anyway.

The funniest part is the breaking up in the middle of the 'fist fight' where she keeps accusing him of trying to kiss her...that lightens it up too and makes it funny.

Re: So Jonah Hill punching a girl is funny because????

It's not funny. Plain and simple.

JGL is my boyfriend, he just doesn't know yet.

Re: So Jonah Hill punching a girl is funny because????

it is funny but i guess that is what comedy is all about. some people find it funny others don't.

Re: So Jonah Hill punching a girl is funny because????

Yes it is. Plain and simple.

Re: So Jonah Hill punching a girl is funny because????

Plain and simple like you.

Re: So Jonah Hill punching a girl is funny because????

Uh-oh, we have an internet wise-guy here!

Re: So Jonah Hill punching a girl is funny because????

an incomplete clip will never be funny.

Its like a scene of an evil guy chasing a cute dog and he suddenly stepped on a banana skin and fell down on a dog *beep* w/ his face.

and you will start to criticize "what is so funny w/ an evil guy chasing a cute dog" (BECAUSE THAT IS THE ONLY CLIP YOU'VE SEEN AND HEARD). And then another person reacts w/ your ("what is so funny w/ an evil guy chasing a cute dog" post and said "OMG that is animal cruelty. that is not funny". Then another person who is an animal lover and who has not seen the film reacts and said "They are torturing animals? That is not funny. American Comedy is dead and dumb"

And sadly that is the new generation of movie critics...

Re: So Jonah Hill punching a girl is funny because????

But let me guess seeing a man kneed in the groin is hilarious, right?

Re: So Jonah Hill punching a girl is funny because????

If he talks like a cat with his huevos in a vise, yeah. Sorry, you can't hit a girl that'll make her talk anymore high pitched than she already is.

Re: So Jonah Hill punching a girl is funny because????

That stuff isn't funny. It's overdone and pathetic.

Re: So Jonah Hill punching a girl is funny because????

Men are stronger than women you idiot. Nobody likes to see when someone weaker is attacked by someone who is stronger unless you are sick.

JGL is my boyfriend, he just doesn't know yet.

Re: So Jonah Hill punching a girl is funny because????

Which is why there were never any weak little damsels in the 3 Stooges shorts, they got as good as they gave.

Re: So Jonah Hill punching a girl is funny because????

And the girl Jonah punches is no weak damsel either. She beats the crap out of him.

Re: So Jonah Hill punching a girl is funny because????

This, but also no one would ever mistake Jonah for a fighter either. There's just something ridiculous about him not wanting to hit this woman and when he finally does she's basically stronger than him anyway.

Re: So Jonah Hill punching a girl is funny because????

That Amber girl sure was a crazy fighter.

Re: So Jonah Hill punching a girl is funny because????

Oh boy, I remember the exact opposite was uttered in the Furious 6 board where the tards were discussing why it's always badass guys fighting guys in one corner and the badass girls fighting girls in the other.

Then a guy dared to say because someone like The Rock would beat the crap out of the female MMA fighter/actress. Then *beep* start flying and some woman came and said how she could beat up the guy, and how women are tough and on and on. Then the guys get riled up and soon everybody starts to keyboard warrioring it up.

Re: So Jonah Hill punching a girl is funny because????

Well yes there ARE women who are stronger than men. But on average women weigh less and are not as physically strong as men.

It's not just men hitting women that disgust me, it's attacking defenseless animals too. Basically it is not cool for someone to pick on someone or something that is much weaker. Which is why our society has coined the phrase "why don't you pick on someone your own size".

Re: So Jonah Hill punching a girl is funny because????

Can you find that thread? Sounds funny. But yeah a woman 'could' beat up a man if she had rocks, cue balls, crow bars, and more to hit him with.

NO SIGNATURE FOR YOU! Come back oneYear!

Re: So Jonah Hill punching a girl is funny because????

first of all, if you are a woman, why in the hell are you on here?

Re: So Jonah Hill punching a girl is funny because????

What has that got to do with anything? Why shouldn't a woman be on here?

Re: So Jonah Hill punching a girl is funny because????

So you advocate violence against someone deemed 'strong'?

That's just sad and hypocritical.

Try Me

Re: So Jonah Hill punching a girl is funny because????

SOME men are stronger than SOME women. Some men are stronger than some men. If two guys got in a fight and one was weaker would you have a problem with it? If not, GTFO of here with your redicilous feminist b.s. You've obviously never watched WWF or anything. Some of those bodybuilder women on there could kill you if they wanted. Women are equal. It's the 21at century. Stop treating women like children

Re: So Jonah Hill punching a girl is funny because????

I agree. I'm a girl and I personally don't think that scene was offensive to women in any way. The thought never crossed my mind until I saw this post. I actually thought it was kinda cool and funny how Mercedes was stronger than Schmidt.

Re: So Jonah Hill punching a girl is funny because????


Nobody likes to see when someone weaker is attacked by someone who is stronger unless you are sick.
She was not weaker than he was. She seemed to be kicking his ass for the majority of time.

Re: So Jonah Hill punching a girl is funny because????

Its funny because the girl is clearly the stronger one who pummels the daylights out of him.

Re: So Jonah Hill punching a girl is funny because????

the thing I hate about this argument is that she ASKS him to punch her. She even calls him a piissy...
She says "If you thought of me as equal instead of a fragile girl You would punch me) or something.

The girl punches him, and THEN ASKS HIM to Puch her...............

what about that?

Re: So Jonah Hill punching a girl is funny because????

You're a stupid *beep*

Nope a guy getting beat up a tougher guy is not funny! I'm looking at you, Yes Man!

Re: So Jonah Hill punching a girl is funny because????

Two guys fighting is different than a man and a woman. What is so hard to understand here? Why do you think in the Olympics we have a men's and a women's section? Because it would not be fair to the women to have to compete against men.

So yeah... It's pretty messed up that we think it's now funny for men to punch women, let it alone it being ok.

Re: So Jonah Hill punching a girl is funny because????


Two guys fighting is different than a man and a woman.


If Hollywood wanted to they could write it so a man and woman fighting would go down exactly as two guys fighting would. It's not rocket science.

Re: So Jonah Hill punching a girl is funny because????

We're talking about comedy here and what is considered funny and what is crossing the line. Try to pay attention.

What I saw here was not slapstick. It was a man punching a woman in the face.

Re: So Jonah Hill punching a girl is funny because????

Like I said, if they WANTED to, of course Hollywood has no WANT to do anything that might actually be work and require any effort on their part.

Re: So Jonah Hill punching a girl is funny because????

So a girl punching a guy is funny isn't crossing the line?

Anything is bound to happen in a comedy, and isn't meant to be taken seriously.

Try Me

Re: So Jonah Hill punching a girl is funny because????

So how do you feel about a woman punching a man or a man punching a man or woman punching a woman. If you find any of that acceptable, then you are a hypocrite.

Re: So Jonah Hill punching a girl is funny because????

What about a woman punching a goat?

Re: So Jonah Hill punching a girl is funny because????

You forgot about a goat kicking a woman.

Re: So Jonah Hill punching a girl is funny because????

Feminists are always complaining about how men and women aren't treated equally enough. Then when we try to treat women equally, such as giving them a scene of slapstick, then people still complain about it. What is it? Equality? Give women more rights than men?
