Of course I must feel the need to warn you that not everything on here is totally SFW. Most of it is fine and there will never be anything crazy explicit, but in some cases there may be some slightly questionable content for the office. In this case, the goats and the teen dream phone have some audio cues that might raise some eyebrows.

Film Dialogue

from 2,000 screenplays, Broken Down by Gender and Age

Lately, Hollywood has been taking so much shit for rampant sexism and racism. The prevailing theme: white men dominate movie roles.

But it’s all rhetoric and no data, which gets us nowhere in terms of having an informed discussion. How many movies are actually about men? What changes by genre, era, or box-office revenue? What circumstances generate more diversity?

To begin answering these questions, we Googled our way to 8,000 screenplays and matched each character’s lines to an actor. From there, we compiled the number of lines for male and female characters across roughly 2,000 films, arguably the largest undertaking of script analysis, ever.
