i really can't see the portrayal of a derpy handicapped dude in a comedy movie happening today without getting some serious public outcry.
i find it funny that angie macdowell was both in this, and that movie where rosie o'donnell played a handicapable as well
Yeah.. I mentioned recently about how the busdriver showed The Ringer on the bus for the Special Olympics Ski Team that I was chaperoning a few years ago.. it got public outcry but then they were like "oh it's OK because everybody else is actually intellectually disabled and now they get to be in MOVIES!"
I fucking hate that condescending attitude. The choir I work with is run by devoted individuals who may not have a disability, but the rival one is doing their own musical featuring only a few of the students and the rest are professional musicians and actors on stage. So yay for the few with high functioning autism but FUCK YOU DOWN SYNDROME BUY A TICKET! I dunno, sorry didn't mean to get my panties in a bunch there, but I really hate that shit.
As far as this movie goes, meh. My ex girlfriend's dad thought it was the best movie ever. That "ex" is there for a reason probably. I'll probably never see it.

Maybe the way around it should always be high-concept stuff like this.
"NO, you don't get it! He's not a 'tard, he's a clone of a clone! It's totally different!"
