King Kong is weaker than expected because the girls aren’t into him, or so goes the theory. “Judging by the women I’ve spoken with, there’s a definite non-interest in Kong,” says reader Matthew Meyerotto. “The movie has no sex symbols. Adrian Brody is too obscure and Jack Black is too chubby. Even if Kong is a love story at its core, the average female movie going audience is too shallow to be brought into the theater without a pretty face.”
