How Movies Teach Manhood

A few days ago I saw this video on TED. I like what the presenter says and his comparrison between Star Wars and the Wizard of Oz. However I do not agree with all of his points. In particular I do not think that Disney Princess’ are good role models for girls when they advocate changing everything you are to get the Prince who will rescue you because you are a helpless girl. That being said, he does offer some good food for thought.
