The point is: it's perfectly okay when the guy is older than the woman, but it is somewhat of a issue when the woman (either the actress or/and her role) is older.
But my point is that it's established in the movie that he's older and is almost a plot point in the case of Raiders.

I'm not denying that there is an element of hypocrisy. I'm just saying that Indy is a terrible example.
Which brings me back to my original comment to you:

What if in this flick, it is established that Lois is older than Clark? Would that stop the whole "Amy Adams is too old" nonsense?
But if you are still going to be nitpicky, how about this (still using Indy as an example): Ford is 12 years older than Kate Capshaw and 24 years older than Alison Doody. No one complains.
