I'll pick up a used copy next year. How can I not own such an amusing example of a product from a billionaire who thinks he's an anti-capitalist?

It was all I could do to keep from laughing and groaning out loud in the theater. It'll be a real hoot with a couple friends and some tequila shooters.

No, plot stolen from Dances with Wolves.

You're both right. Dances with Wolves, Dances with Pandas, and Dances with Smurfs share the same plotline. White man becomes disillusioned with corrupt, inferior Western society, goes native with noble, superior unwhite people, then rescues unwhite people from Western people through application of superior Western techniques.

It's the multiculti leftard's fantasy of both being accepted by brown people, and saving them. It used to be called White Man's Burden in less enlightened times. Either way it's self-congratulatory, condescending, paternalistic horsesh**.

You mean they really don't want us to save them from themselves???????

You mean like, "We love everyone, even those who are too inferior to solve their own problems and need our superior benevolent guidance?" Those "caring" types?

They've "helped" the inner cities enough already. Any more of their "help" and those places will be graveyards. I'll take straight racists any day over those limousine egalitarians. The egalitarians are far more dangerous. Who ever thought that "free money" could become a trap more powerful than actual chains?

I saw Avatar in 3D with my daughter. She didn't understand why I hated the movie so much. Took a little explaining.

Fantastic graphics, though.

I did notice that they were selective about the use of 3D. It was most pronounced in areas where the director wanted your attention. If your view drifted, the effect was lost.

You guys are walking the line. The MO nannies are going to come rushing in any minute.
