Jann Ruyters asks:
"Does anybody know of any feature films in which there a female MUD is
represented or a female competerfreak or computernerd or internet-addict,
or whatever, or the opposite, a total computer-nitwit? Films like THE NET
with Sandra Bullock but other ones?"
 
As I recall, Ally Sheedy as Matthew Broderick's girlfriend in WARGAMES
mainly stands around and watches him.
 
On the other hand, the girl in JURASSIC PARK is able to reboot the island's
system.
 
I wonder if the original screen computer-nitwit woman might not be Hepburn
in THE DESK SET?
 
And, if you want to add a TV show, there was the short-lived cyberfantasy
VR.
