Don't do scat, kids. It means you're a Republican.
eat my shit. awesome scene,
2 slices lol
I may be bad, but I'm perfectly good at it.
Yes, it is a good film. A white journalist comes back to her hometown in, I believe, Alabama, and writes a book about the black maids in the small town and all the crap they had to put up with.
Sorry all that came to mind was:
I thought it was a decent film.
I couldn't get my mind off you all day.
It's a good comedy, although it doesn't represent a great ideal for race relations.
The book was wonderful and I thought the film was a true representation of the story. Very entertaining movie.
I read the book and watched the film. It was certainly entertaining, but the representation of black men was very problematic, and I was bothered by the whole "white savior" trope that keeps coming up in American literature and cinema.
Recently I heard a 'wise guy' story that I had a party at my home for twenty-five men. It's an interesting story, but I don't know twenty-five men I'd want to invite to a party. ~Joan Crawford
Yes, I saw it at the show when it was around last year or so. I remember enjoying it.
White people like the white saviour narrative, because they can identify with the white protagonist, who is absolved from white guilt and becomes a white hero for people of colour to worship. When the white protagonist joins the group of people of colour, white people imagine that it is possible for a white person to purge his whiteness, and hence, to free himself from white guilt and responsibility. Paradoxically, not only does the white protagonist rid himself of white guilt, but he also becomes the hero, the saviour, the superior group member because he is white.
So is this a syndrome related to those people who push that intellectual conceit that Irish and Italians are "non-white".

^ Keep Grinding that axe there Patty.
Once again, instead of debating the point in the thread it was made in...you've decided to try to hijack another thread to prove some kind of point.
Why don't you try to answer the OP's question.
Have you seen the fucking movie or not?
We did. Loved it.
Saw it in the theater last Labor Day. Loved it. You will too. I definitely recommend watching it.
Yes, twice. It's a great movie!
