"Democracy is the theory that the common people know what they want, and deserve to get it good and hard."
The ignoble Jane Fonda did essentially the same flick back in the 70's, where the wife's deliberate adultery is excused by the returning VietNam vet husband's deranged brutality. Hollywood only listens to itself, and most of Hollywood's sales are outside the U.S., catering to audiences who envy or fear us and don't want to admit it. So portraying "mainstream" Americans as loosers is actually good business for them.
Who says I'm too old, almost been in all those wars... but I am such a pussy cat... hear me purr.wv aloist
Earl,"Who says I'm too old..."Hollywood. They experience reality differently from you and I.

Oy! I resemble that remark! (the first part of it anyway)At least, the parts of me that I can still see without a mirror do.w/v: despylga - I got nothing, but it sounds like it ought to have it's own entry in the DSM IV. Cue Brigid ...
I can remember the cop shows from the 70's. If there hadn't of been a war in Viet Nam in the 60's those tv shows couldn't have been made. Every one had or was about "crazed VN vets" going off their rocker and killing someone, usually a baby. Really pised me off and then Eastwood made those movies about "crazed hippies with RPG's and the AK47's. I suppose we really helped the economy huh.
