'12 Angry Men' Tackles Hollywood's Hottest Debate

Posted By on Wed, May 6, 2015 at 3:08 PM


My favorite comedian did a parody of my favorite film and everything in the world is beautiful.

Slate's take on the episode:
Is being an unattractive woman in show business a crime? In Tuesday’s episode of Inside Amy Schumer, a jury gathers to decide whether or not Amy Schumer is “hot enough for basic cable television.” The episode is in black and white and parodies 12 Angry Men, a movie that follows jury deliberations for a murder trial. Jeff Goldblum and Paul Giamatti, among other jury members, brilliantly lampoon the Hollywood double standard that often pegs a woman’s value directly to her looks.
