Where is Kevin Costner when you need him? The movie that this politically correct mish-mash of a mess most resembles is Dances with Wolves because in both actual history has been sacrificed in order to preach some sort of alternate theory in which civilization -- and its discontents -- is the villain in a world of happy mystical natives. The plot is one dimensional and the acting wooden. However, the fake history is quite imaginative. Indeed, there is little doubt that the authors would have been even happier if they had been able to portray the bombing of Australia as something of an American conspiracy and merely a defensive response by the Imperial Japanese. Oh well, perhaps next time that can be the storyline if education continues its relentless march toward misinformation. Dumb would be a compliment to all concerned.
