    Lol SomeGuy! But I just recently learned that weeks of heavy exercise can make it go away, as well as loss of fat. That's what happens to a lot of women in boot camp. So technically, this movie was still pretty accurate about that!

    Growing up in a house of boys, I can attest that if no one tells you anything, you know jack all about girl biology. They probably just thought she was showing off how tough she could be or something?

    What??? They don't teach that at your school?
  • 12th December 2009 by PhoenixFox
    Especially if you plan on snapping any concrete slabs in half with your head any time soon. Cause they so teach that in school.

                          Only the main character gets to have her own horse throughout the movie. All other rookie troops must walk or perish.

                                        In a homophobic society, it is helpful to your country to scorn the person you love because she made you believe she was a boy, and was your best soldier. Never mind that she legitimately tries to warn you of impending doom.

                                            Sometimes, all it takes to win a war is to look at the problem from a woman's perspective.

                                                You may look like a bride, but you will never bring your family honor.

                                                  Aparently all the other solders can't see the little red dragon sticking strait out of the back of her uniform.

                                                    Fa Mulan's hanfu sleeve is magic; not only can it perfectly remove Fa Mulan's makeup perfectly down the middle of her face, it can also make her eyebrow grow thicker while removing said makeup.

                                                      Since you single-handedly buried the Huns alive and saved all of your buddies (as well as your captain) from being killed in an avalanche, you now have Shang's trust. Unless you're actually a woman. Then it's all downhill from there.

                                                          The Huns and the Mongol horde swapped their infantrymen during the week Shan Yu decided to make his move on China. Rome was heartily pillaged while the Imperial City was slightly singed. I think we know who got the short end of that trade.

How did Shan-Yu miss, she was three inches in front of him! Moral: when your enemy's head is three inches from your sword, that's just sad if they survive.
