Fan and critic reaction to the film was mixed and Girls pokes fun at the film. The conversation goes as follows:
“Lorelai: There’s a debate going on whether to take the phone booth out.
Rory: But where would Superman change when he comes to save our town from Ben Affleck?
Lorelai: I made the same excellent point.”
Not to be left out of the pop culture references, Girls also comments on the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
“Lorelai: He’s like a superhero, but his power is you can’t remember him no matter how much time you spend with him. Kind of like every Marvel movie ever.“
