Question of the Day

Following up on yesterday's QotD: What is your favorite movie (comedy or otherwise) that is just virtually devoid of women for no good reason?

(As opposed to, say, a film like The Shawshank Redemption, which takes place almost entirely in a men's prison, so the dearth of prominent female roles makes sense. That there are so many films made in male-centric environments is a whole other issue entirely.)

I don't know if this is precisely my favorite of the many possible answers to this question, but the first one that came to mind is The Usual Suspects. There's no good reason that one of the crooks couldn't have been female.

Imagine if Verbal Kint had been a lady. (!)
