I was saying to Tobias yesterday that I didn't object to Mirren's character as much as you do here; when I rewatched TLGF a few months ago I was really struck by her character's chops and how she was a fully rounded person (and there wasn't a hint of sexual violence at any point, which is pretty unusual when molls are 'allowed' to be intelligent and dignified). And to be fair, anyone would have been terrified at the end...
