Set It Off (1996)
Listen now
Throughout our Boss Bitch-themed season, we have discussed badass women in many forms and narratives. However, the women in this movie went so beyond the call of duty that they put the other so called “boss bitches” to shame.  Set It Off manages to display female characters who exist in a whole other realm of power, bravado, and fearlessness, while also managing to be loyal, vulnerable, tender, and often HILARIOUS, sending the three of us through the FULL range of emotion while watching. This along with its incredible story telling, iconic scenes, and star-studded-as-hell cast are just pieces of what makes this film legendary. If you haven’t seen Set It Off, treat yourself and watch it TODAY, and tune into our ep to hear us discuss this unforgettable film at length. Other subjects covered in this ep include our own experiences with petty crime, our thoughts on rich men in movies picking out clothes for women, unruly puppies, and the most recent Eurocup!  Starring: Jada Pinkett Smith, Queen Latifah, Vivica A. Fox, Kimberly Elise, Blair Underwood  @blockbusterbetties [email protected]
