The movie has three named female characters, two of which are portrayed as very intelligent and who have discussions about about things other than men, but never have a conversation together.

Main characters: male; object of main character's affection: female, whose name escapes me but I'm sure they mention it at some point. Dance instructor/stripper is named Marielena. One female in team: Naeha. No women ever discuss anything with each other in this film.

I was disgusted by the female as object or support for a male ego/character overkill in this movie. Totally unbalanced. Dana is saved from a life of overwork by a one night stand with Nick. Neha has to use overt sexuality to get acceptance, but then needs to be saved by being taken to a strip club. Marielena is a stripper/dancer saved by a super-bright nerd.
The two main male characters are the ones that need saving from themselves (neither able to hold down a relationship), but win the day and receive accolades all around.
PS: I'm a bloke, but this film just went too far for me.

Cayman is absolutely right - well done on the comment Cayman - this fllm is so sexist that it ruins the fun of watching it. Stupid. It's 2013 and this crap is coming out???
