Tone-Deaf and Shockingly Sexist

Molly Wood, CNet:

Everything about this phone announcement was a weird, one-dimensional, faux-Broadway-style otherworld where good taste and, in fact, technology were almost completely nonexistent. And you could definitely argue that the delivery and the occasional zinger from Chase suggest that the show was meant to be over the top, ham-handed, and all in good fun. And maybe, maybe that would have worked if it had been well executed. Maybe it would have been funny if the sarcasm factor was just a little higher, or there were a little more edge to the cartoony lights and makeup.

But you know what’s even better than better acting, better production, and better script-writing? Dumping the crappy female stereotypes in the first place.
