Bullshit. Shakespeare had a great screenplay. And a great cast (christ, even Affleck was good). SPR's characters were cardboard cutouts. It deserved tech awards, and that's it.

Isn't Kidman doing a remake of The Birds?

I realized I didn't remember exactly what those comments were I'd heard, so I went to the "blah blah" thing. But I've been hearing dissenters say some shit about ... shit, I can't even remember. Let me see if Google is any help.

Maybe DDL gave her the cold shoulder tonight for doing just that, and now she's boo-hooing over it.

Okay, it's from Wikipedia, but oh well:

"Filmmaker Lloyd Kaufman has noted that Gump's successes result from doing what he is told by others, and never showing any initiative of his own, in contrast to Jenny's more forthright and independent character who is shown descending into drugs, prostitution, and death."

(although I never got the impression Jenny was a hooker.)

Well considering anyone who's part of the counter-culture is lampooned or killed off, yet the filmmakers somehow tricked baby boomers into liking it by spoonfeeding them popular hits of the time period, it's pretty reprehensible.

I don't like disagreeing with you, Cori.

Yeah, that too!

And it was implied at least that Jenny was promiscuous. Of course, by the film's politics, any independent, free-thinking woman would be a whore or prostitute.

No, no ... I understand WHY those things were said about it. I'm just saying I enjoyed it as a piece of entertainment.
