It was lauded, then picked apart, and then finally nominated for multiple Emmys. Now, the Girls see-saw continues, with a pitch-perfect parody.
Made by L.A. filmmaker Peter Moses, the short “Boys” does the predictable: flips the story from girls to guys, giving its four characters the same sort of problems as Dunham’s cast, but with a guy’s edge.
