“Bad Teacher,” starring Cameron Diaz, as a foul-mouthed woman totally unsuited for teaching, is one of two potty-mouth movies we deigned to see. Of course, we did not know how potty-mouthed they were going to be, but we gave them a go and watched them through to the end – unfortunately. Neither of these movies is suitable for children, people! If they bleeped out all of the foul language, there would be about 20 minutes of dialogue left. Why does this bother us? (Do you really need to ask?) It bothers us because crudeness and cuss words are so totally unnecessary. There are millions of stories, plots, and books that have great characters and action and depth. Don’t you get that Hollywood greed is turning our youth into cigarette-smoking, foul-mouthed, violent but lazy jerks? Just because babies eat everything they pick up from the floor does not mean it is good for them or that you should let them. With the crap that Hollywood consistently turns out, it is no wonder the world’s view of America is so screwed up. Good actors seem to be forced into demeaning roles because nothing else is being presented to them. What a crock!
Rating: 2 out of 5 stars.
“Horrible Bosses” is worse, disgusting though vaguely amusing during the non-potty times. Anniston should be ashamed of herself! Was it really fun to make, Jennifer? That there is even a remote possibility of bosses, or even people, like Anniston’s, Kevin Spacey’s, and Colin Firth’s characters being in the real world sickens me.
Rating: 2.1 out of 5 stars.
