    I couldn’t disagree more. But then you only have to read my review to work that out. In a way, this review works as a kind of mirror of my own, even to the extent it picks dialogue just off of where I chose mine. But the central difference, that Murphy is a feminine hero is not a view I share. For me, and it’s a while since I saw the film, the final ‘feminist’ humiliation is all too obvious when Daddy comes home and triumphs over his daughter who has turned from daughter to old hag. He just had to have his cake and eat it. Yes, she may, in the first half, have become a scientist, but she’s serious and bitter woman, eventually released into space. From then on, the movie should be hers, but no, no, no, Daddy has to have the final say. And it’s that, which makes it anti-feminist. Never let a woman have the last word, is the subtext. Even better, if you can get one over her and a nod up to the male half of the species, so Dad has a new girlfriend and daughter becomes his Mom. Anyway, the review you write is good, just I don’t agree with that aspect of the analysis: good effort though.
