    I'll be damned if I can figure out what's "sexist and woke" about "GB16", much less insufferably so... :shrug:

    More power to ya, but I think "Grown Ups" is one of the laziest movies I've ever seen. Just feels like Sandler and buddies made it up as they went along and shot it over a long weekend.

    No redeeming value I can find.

    Grown Ups [Blu-Ray] (2010)

    And the sequel is just as lazy/awful! :sigh:

    Bad Grandpa is absolutely unwatchable.

    Cheers was funny sporadically...but Rhea Pearlman always got the best lines.

    Goodness! I could go on..

    None the less…This actually a poorly disguised political discussion about language, yes?

    Which I’d be happy to have but…not here.

    cheers!
     
  6. Boy will I be relieved when the term "woke" is retired.

    I haven't seen the remake, but I don't think originals are that funny either. I always viewed Ghostbusters as more of a fantasy movie. Maybe except for the ESP test scene, which was funny imho

    I've retired it from my own vocabulary, and substitute the word "ahistorical" now instead. It better describes that perspective.

    I usually can't stand Johnny Knoxville, but he made me laugh out loud a couple of times in this.

    The preview I saw for Bad Grandpa made it look like it would be hysterically funny. It showed the Grandpa having the boy in a wig poll dancing on stage at a girls' beauty pagent and Grandpa throwing dollar bills on the stage to help sell the act. I thought it would be non-stop hilarity like that. Instead it was slow, filled with awkward moments like a funeral scene that wasn't funny. Lots of anger and emotion and serious family issues. Grandpa getting his thing stuck in a vending machine in a long drawn out scene. The dancing scene from the preview was just tacked on at the end of the film and that was the only funny thing the boy did as I recall.
    The Jackass films were pretty funny. Like when he returned a rental car after wrecking it in a demolition derby and acted like it wasn't that bad and it wasn't his fault and if anything they were liable for all damages. Now that's good stuff!

    I guess the notion is that something "woke" can be anti-male and that makes it "sexist"! :shrug:

    Senses of humor are very personal, Cheers is genius and very very funny
