A love letter to women-led comedies. 

Based on Elizabeth Teets’s program series called “Isn’t She Great” at the Hollywood  Theater, this anthology is a collection of the most beloved female-centric comedies and the  audiences who adore them. From 9 to 5 to Romy and Michele to the iconic Elle Woods, the  essays in this collection build on our devotion to these films and continue the conversation  around funny women and how these characters have shaped so many talented writers. 

As Elizabeth Teets reminds us, there is a specific power in a funny woman. A woman who  dares to laugh at the world and at herself. These movies made us strong and smart and  sexy (and bend and snap a lot). At the end of the day, we remind ourselves when the world  only tries to let us have a little - a little money, a little confidence, a little joy - to go out and  get the whole enchilada. 

Isn’t She Great is for anyone who loves movies and feels the glamour in pink. Cult cinema  and film criticism will never be the same. 



Top 5 favorite movies

Every essay featured in Isn’t She Great: Writers on Women-Led Comedies from 9 to 5 to Booksmart reminds us of the power of funny women and how their stories shaped so many talented writers. This list is just a few of the fantastic films and what makes them deserve so many rewatches.


9 to 5

“It is a movie they rarely let women make...For once women are allowed to go on a journey and this time we can also bring our friends. The movie addresses sexual harassment, the unpaid extra roles women play in the workforce, and the glass ceiling in ways even movies made today shy away from.”

-Elizabeth Teets (editor), “The Whole Enchilada”



“During a time when most female protagonists were relaying messages of self-doubt, low self-esteem, and anxiety, Courtney Shayne was out here organizing murder cover-ups and playing kinky sex games with her boyfriend without breaking a sweat or worrying over other people’s opinions of her. This is a woman who knows exactly how to play every situation, obviously until the end where everything unravels.”

-Samantha Mann, “An Unlikely Shero: How Jawbreaker Helped Me Get My First Kiss”


Miss Congeniality

Miss Congeniality became a hit at such a critical time for young women who didn’t want to choose between glam and grit.”

-Aubrey Jacobowitz, “Satan’s Panties: Miss Congeniality and Fashion as Performance”


Bridget Jones’s Diary

Bridget Jones’s Diary is, to me, one of the more excellent romcoms because it does not require anything of its protagonist for her to be deserving of love.”

-Toju Adelaja, “To Bridget Jones, Just As She Is”



Booksmart’s real revelation, the one without a nature-meets-city metaphor or any major declaration: Molly and Amy don’t need to party to prove they have dimension,”

-Anna Sims, “On Booksmart Rewriting the Narrative of the Teenage Girl”
