Free The Nipple (2014)

Not a scene from Spring Breakers (2012).
At a glance:
It's one thing to demand for the right to breastfeed in public. It's quite another to run topless across New York City just because men can do it. Free The Nipple (2014) is every bit as incendiary and silly as it sounds. If you could dignify it as an equality movement, they say they're standing against oppression and censorship.
Bad news on the doorstep:
Low self esteems and masturbatory egos jump at the chance of becoming activists. The movie becomes a natural descent into the depths of unwatchability somewhere near the fifth minute when the main character actually concedes that she does it because "it makes her feel good".
Perennial wonderment:

Reminds me of:
Everyone has that one friend who turned vegan just because it's the in-thing, don't they? Once I knew a scrawny bird, who was rather fun to hang around. Then she picked up a book one day and before you know it, she became a Facebook activist against everythin from child labour to sharksfin soup.
I can't remember if I cried:

Most memorable line:
