I found the inclusion of a clip from "The Russians are Coming, the Russians are Coming" to be a bit ironic, given that the movie is about how the Russians were just people just like we -- the Americans -- were, this utterly averting the trope completely.

It's called art so these are topics that some people might want to give it a rest. Watch the movie and enjoy the art of it and don't wonder who offends whom. Why not think of the phrase, water off a duck's back? Take it that way.

People are entirely too sensitive nowadays. Most parents don't even pay attention to what their kids watch or what they do, so they want to blame anything they can. Movies made 20-30 years ago are in the past. They're not gonna re-write them to cater to all the millennial cry babies

For example here's a line from the pg rated movie beetlejuice: hey, nice fucking model honk honk and children talking about sex or private parts in pg-13 rated films. Here's an example of that from the pg-13 rated film kindergarten cop: boys have a penis, girls have a vagina or in another scene from the same film, our mom says our dad is a real sex machine

At the time everyone smoked in films because everyone smoked in reality. Adults didn't do anything about bullies in movies because adults didn't do anything about bullies in reality.

In twenty years, when you guys make a video about worthless videos that flooded the internet in the 2010's, include this one. Film, like everything that dwells within the social realm of human culture, evolves over time. As the world grows and sees the issues that have been highlighted publicly throughout film, TV, social media, news, life experience, political reforms, and more, so too has the content that is deemed acceptable to create been changed. Fifty years from now our world's "woke" behaviors will most likely be pulled apart and chastised for our poor execution of simple ideals of equality. No one is, has been, or ever will be perfect, let's not pretend that this video was necessary.

Noise. Pure bullshit. As if somehow Smoking, demonizing a country, bullying.... are things that can be removed from society. Put the world in bubble wrap to make things safe for our precious youth's minds. Slavery has been the rule, not the exception in society. Most slavery today is practiced in Asia and Africa. We talk about these issues to solve them, not avoid them. When I was in high school, my history teacher was a navigator on a B-24 that flew bombing raids over Germany when they'd lose 25% of their aircraft in a single mission. He was 22 years old and considered an old man due to the high mortality rate. Also since he was of Italian descent, we was accused of being less than devoted to the Allied cause since the Italians were Axis allies. 7-10 boys on that aircraft put into combat to fight against the Axis powers and they knew they had a 25% chance of dying each night. But they summoned their courage and went into battle for a higher purpose. Truly honorable men. When they got home they married, got a job and raised a family. What do kids of that age talk about now? Trying to not get their feelings hurt, trigger warnings, unconscious bias. Hell, Jerry Seinfeld won't appear on college campuses due to the manufactured outrage crowd that infests most universities. This video feeds into that narrative.

Screw em! If you get offended by these things you have bigger issues. One of the rules of the world is "If you can't laugh at yourself then you can't laugh at others!" Simple reason why words don't do crap to people like myself. Because as we said as children "Sticks and stones my break my bones but words will never hurt me!" Because it's true unless you have a massive ego and can't take it!

Authority figures DID have lax attitudes with bullying. I remember telling a teacher in third grade the class bully decked me in the face. She shrugged and asked “well what are you going to do about it?”. Looking back she was just trying to teach me to grow a pair and defend myself. That came in handy when the real bullying started in high school. What’s wrong with that? Why is everything so offensive and taken so seriously? When did being a coward become okay?

Omg people you are missing the point I don't think people would be offended if people that were black or gay or women were depicted a certain way by one or two characters but when people of a whole type in a film are described and depicted a certain way it seems offensive. You see it's the same way when all you white people got offended by Get Out and all the whites or most of them were bad guys in the movie oh but wait it's only ok if it's not you guys lol

I really think we need a movie about Morocco and other northern African countries capturing and keeping thousands of European and American slaves. The United States Navy was created to respond to the capturing of American sailors in the Mediterranean. The Marine hymn about fighting on “the shores of Tripoli” refers specifically to this conflict. Discussions with the slavers resulted in this response: It was written in their Koran, (that all nations which had not acknowledged the Prophet were sinners, whom it was the right and duty of the faithful to plunder and enslave; and that every mussulman who was slain in this warfare was sure to go to paradise. He said, also, that the man who was the first to board a vessel had one slave over and above his share, and that when they sprang to the deck of an enemy's ship, every sailor held a dagger in each hand and a third in his mouth; which usually struck such terror into the foe that they cried out for quarter at once.” Of course this happened 250 years ago so it has no real relevance to international relations today, so maybe a movie reminding everyone of this true history would be needlessly divisive. If they produced a movie about this topic it would only serve to inflame tensions for long ago misdeeds. Similar to the movies Hollywood produces now with the goal of dividing our nation rather than uniting it. The recent Academy Award winning “Green Book” movie had more of a uniting theme than dividing, so of course Hollywood insiders criticized the award.

Some of these make sense but criticizing a historical representation even if what used to happen then is no longer acceptable is a denial of history and that takes away from our s I;it’s to see out]r mistakes and try to improve. Actors who did this (John Wayne, Ronal Reagan, etc.), are not “guilty” of anything. They played a role that represented something that was considered normal and acceptable;e at that time in history therefore we can recognize it as wrong without vilifying it as if it was being done today. That would be as stupid as making a historical movie about plantation life and making sure there are no black slaves in it.

You forgot to mention "white face", as Eddie Murphy portrayed in SNL skits or any black actor or comedian calling white people cracker. All you hear about is women and black people being wronged, no one seems to care about white people who are victimized by the same racism. If women and black people want equality, they need to stop expecting special treatment... there should be no women's day, black history month, gay parades or anything that glorifies any particular race, gender or sexual orientation... it has gotten so out of hand that we don't even know what bathroom to use anymore. We are all human beings and no one class should be promoted more than the other. (however, in the end, WatchMojo did their job to incite these reactions and increase their number of views.... next video on capitalism)

How is the Lewis/Betty scene in Revenge of the Nerds rape? Because he pretended to be someone else? She consented without questioning him. This is just another case of people being retroactively offended by something. I saw Revenge of the Nerds when it first came out and I don't recall anything negative being said about that scene at the time.

My dad took my sister and I to see Song of the South as young children. And as a child, I never realized the "supposed" controversy of the movie until many years later when I was an adult and the controversy was pointed out to me. As a child, I enjoyed the music and the cartoon portions of the movie. I remember singing "Zippity Doo Dah" as a child because I liked that song. I never saw anything 'wrong' with the movie because as a child you don't look for deep meaning in a movie. You just want to be entertained. Now I'm supposed to be offended because a movie I enjoyed as a innocent child is 'offensive'. And because of that controversy, I can't share that movie with my kids because Disney won't release it. Some people need to realize that times were different when these movies were made and views were different. I miss the old days when movies were made and the people decided for themselves what was good or bad, and small groups didn't stop people from seeing a movie and deciding for themselves.
