Mediocre vehicle for pushing porn
4 June 2011 | by See all my reviews

The film itself was passable entertainment from the Hollywood McDonalds style menu of mediocrity however the thing that absolute gob smacked me was the unnecessary and lets call a spade a spade, porn scenes although this film had 15 rating. The one particular scene that I never in my whole life would have thought I would see passed of as entertainment was the Jacuzzi scene. This is where two naked men black and white rush in to save Owen Wilson who'd fallen asleep in the tub. The gratuitous close up of the black fellers penis -which looked partially erect, made me feel saddened and sick that this stuff now gets past the censors without batting an eyelid.

I mean how can you watch this filth with your kids or parents . I have no doubt as witnessed by the Glenn Beck radio interview with Ben Shapiro

who is an author of a new book about the left liberal strangle hold on Hollywood and this film clearly shows that.

Let me elaborate: Ben Shapiro talks about the director of desperate housewives making same sex neighbours the norm. We have the same in England where the BBC is dominated by left, liberal self interest groups. I'm convinced that members of the production team or the director have an agenda to make pornography acceptable everywhere in our society. The Farrelly brothers should be absolutely ashamed of their contribution to the breakdown of the moral glue of our society. When lovingly shown shots of an half erect penis is passed of for 15 year old entertainment then you really feel we are entering the final age of Babylon.
