Batfleck won't work

There are casting mistakes that you can forgive and let go like Tobey Maguire as Spiderman (not to mention having Kirsten Dunst in that same movie).

But not when the casting is so ill suited it makes me wanna puke.

Ben Affleck as Batman?

Whatever happened to the world?

People say Hollywood is bad.  And I guess, this is one of those times that I agree with them.

Ben Affleck is "passable" as Daredevil.  He is an award winning director and writer.  He is even a good family man and father.

In Saudi, a 2006 law banning men from working in female apparel and cosmetic stores has never been implemented due to various conservative groups who are opposed to the idea of women working in common areas visited by men and women, like malls.

Finally, the government has decided to enforce this law effective this month after long standing protests by Saudi women.

Strict Saudi law prohibits mingling of unrelated men and women.

Which kind of makes it awkward for women to be accompanied by male relatives in buying their intimate wear from men behind the counter.

"I and many other women like me were always embarrassed to walk into lingerie shops because men were selling the goods," said Saudi shopper Samar Mohammed.

She said that in the past she often bought the wrong underwear "because I was sensitive about explaining what I wanted to a man."

A man wears the pants in a relationship but the woman tells the man which pair to put on.
