Normally, I'm all about the very deeply critical sociological perspective on movies, especially male-centric popular movies. And I can certainly list a few issues with the movie that I'm not willing to go in depth over because I'd really like to still enjoy it. The Iron Man franchise is a conservative and traditional franchise. Period.

But I'd like to say one thing. I've seen some criticisms of some things that Tony did in the movie, or said in the movie. What I don't think that certain viewers realize is this: Tony is a douche. Every time he does something, it's because he's a complete jerk (except for when he's saving lives, but he's still a jerk even then). He's a completely narcissistic asshole. When I see him do something, I automatically assume that the movie is not endorsing it, nor is it a good and proper way to think. Because Tony Stark, ladies and gentlemen, is not a good person. He just happens to be a superhero.
