If you stripped all the self-referential symbolism out of this, you would be left with,

1) Scenes of Utena and Anthy giving each other meaningful looks.

2) Scenes of Utena and Anthy kissing.

3) A scene where Chu-Chu gets stuck in Nanami's nose.

To which I have no real objection. I mean, it's a worthy enough goal for any film.

I don't think it's actually possible to spoil anybody for this movie, but here is a cut, just to be polite:

I appreciate it that both Touga and Akio were already dead when the movie started. Sorry, boys! You're irrelevant! The true enemy has always been the relentless machinery of the patriarchy!

I totally forgot about the scene with Chu-Chu and Nanami's nose! But after the transformation-car-chase-naked-making-out-with-wheels-on climax, I'm amazed I can remember ANYTHING that went on in the preceding 75 minutes.

That is an excellent point now that I think about it.
