In the film a failed actor-turned-even-worse-high-school-dram
The New York Times said of the film, "It made sure to take shots at Christians, gays, Latinos, Jews, the American Civil Liberties Union and Elisabeth Shue, one of its lead actresses."
Upon learning this, we at Angelina’s Wings dispatched our spies to find out who was kicking up a fuss over the movie and, not surprisingly, Christian fundamentalists were on it like halos on Jesus.
One fundamentalist blogger wrote, “A movie like this should never be shown in theaters. It truly a terrible sin – a blasphemy on a national scale.” So is bad grammar.
Any blasphemy on a national scale is bound to attract huge flocks of paying customers so this $9 million movie is virtually guaranteed to earn bags of money. Needless to say the lovelies at Angelina’s Wings will not be protesting; we believe sacred cows should be served up with a full-bodied red.
We do have one sacred cow – fashion. Hamlet 2 doesn’t take a shot at our reason for living, proof positive that the art and industry that we love is truly the only legitimate sacred cow.
