Packed theater. Funny send-up of Hollywood spoofing Hollywood. Fully deserves its R rating. My review: fun summer movie.
As to criticism of “racism” and of negative connotations of films portraying the mentally challenged, I say no way. Racism is for white Aussie Kirk Lazarus having a skin pigmentation operation so he can play a 1969 Black sergeant and inhabit the role. Disabled people should not boycott the film because rapidly fading action star Tugg Speedman decided to play a “Rain Man” type role to attain Oscar glory. It is a spoof of actors and producers and directors and what they’ll stoop to for glory and the almighty dollar.
We’ve got just a few moments to change and get to a party so have a wonderful Saturday night! Dee
