A fine book that tells the story from inside out. Mc Master was and is the biggest criminal in this story...a genuine sleaze.
Cool '58 Ford with Cool Gal!
I think You are right, and a movie more about the sisters would have been better. You had me until here:
"it simply falls a little flat"
I think it was a great movie, and while I think more time developing the sisters would make a good movie too, It was great as it stands if you just stop and consider that:
-The movie emphaisized sisterly love as the driving force rather than romantic love, which I think may be a Disney first.
-Despite the screentime being mostly devoted to snow, a reindeer, a male character, and a female lead, It was actually about THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN TWO SISTERS WHO DON'T KNOW HOW TO BE SISTERS.
-It was a damn good movie in a time when most movies fail the bechdel test altogether.
I liked it.
I agree with you.
Please state all perspectives of the story, and keep this work up.
"Local at heart girl". Nice, that's what Yankees say
The weather here sucks balls.
As long as they fix this, I don't care what else they do:
Sounds like a bunch of nobodies to me.
So much fun! Going back this weekend with more friends!
I guess because a show about five heterosexuals eating a quiche just wouldn't have worked or been nearly as funny. The real question is why you feel threatened by it. It's a play. Come see it. You might enjoy it.
Why do lesbians rate extra attention in the media? How about "5 heterosexuals eating a quiche"? Hardly newsworthy. But LESBIANS!! That's somehow suppose to be special, even magical. Why? I'm just saying.
"We cannot fault Disney too much for putting profit over making a social statement."
Yes. Yes we can.
Excellent article. Very insightful. We cannot fault Disney too much for putting profit over making a social statement. They are a business. Overall, they do well balancing mass appeal and meaningful themes. But your article deftly raised the question of whether they have swung too far toward the former. Thanks for a thoughtful article.
AIDS is no longer a death sentence in developed countries. It is now a treatable disease.
AIDS seems to be prolonging Earvin "Magic" Johnson's life.
Worried about AIDS? According to the CDC, about 440,000 people die from tobacco smoke every year. That number includes the mostly innocent 49400 who die from exposure to secondhand smoke.
Deaths from AIDS? 8369. http://www.cdc.gov/nchs/fastats/aids-hiv.h…
That's right, almost 6 times as many die from exposure to secondhand smoke as die from AIDS in the USA.
So if you want to be worried about AIDS to the point where you don't have sex anymore help yourself.
Just don't try to tell me that if you have a cigarette in your mouth.
Better yet, don't get a blood transfusion from someone with aids.
And if you do drop your pants, don't bend over.
Aids is a preventable disease. Keep it in ur pants and shazam....no aids!!
This is a shame full indictment of the Bible Belt's views sex education and teaching condom use. The religious and political leaders know that using condoms effectively prevent the transmission of AIDS and other STDs but continue to their demagogy to pander instead of lead.
