I agree with you Victor. It appears that a person isn't allowed to have nor express a certain level of taste on this board. One must have a dirt-common sense of humor to laugh at idiotic racist nonsense and approve of it and to stay silent too. Lowest common denominator is getting confused with democracy on this board. The film is garbage but if others find it amusing, well, who was it that said 'no one ever lost any money underestimating the public taste'. In other words Victor, the sad truth is that you can make something entirely stupid and offensive and full of cliches to the point of being racist, and there will be plenty of idiots willing to pay money to see it. The freedom to indulge in stupidity the democratic indulgence in the lowest common denominator. Our culture cultivates stupidity and it succeeds very often.
