Going with Wildvine on this one. That was a really impressive little story; great atmosphere, great twist. Genuinely had me guessing.

I think anyone who says all cultures are equal may not understand what we mean by culture. Culture isn't just about relatively trivial things like pizza vs English breakfast, it's also about what's socially acceptable and having a culture where treating woman as second class citizens is socially acceptable for example is not as morally good as a culture that treats them equally to men.

Fhwoomp, there it is.

This is about as succinct as one can get on this topic. Comparing the borderline-Utopian northern European countries to somewhere like, say, Nigeria, where the age of consent is 11 and they only just recently outlawed female genital mutilation, makes it pretty obvious that some cultures are better than others. More comfortable, more prosperous, more equal, more free.

Tomorrow's Headline: Joygirl -- RACIST?!

It doesn't deserve it, but whatever.

Mediocrity wins again.

You have a point though. It was a pretty lackluster movie that had the potential to be amazing with less meddling from the studio. Sadly, most audiences are blinded by mediocrity. I saw SS with my mom and my brother and they both loved it, it took my pointing out the vast myriad of problems it had for them to begrudgingly admit it wasn't great.

DC/WB isn't really being properly punished for making the film equivalent of leftover flan, and as such, things are moving forward as scheduled.

Well if I pick Lois then won't I get explicit knowledge of her location, situation, and level of endangerment at all times despite being totally ignorant to everything else going on around me? I mean, it's hard to pass that up. Oh, and she can interject into the plot of whatever's happening at any time with vital information that only the writer could possibly have. I mean, even if I don't really find her all that attractive, it's kind of hard to pass up on a completely omniscient and ubiquitous nexus of logic that I have cameras on at all times.

To actually answer the question though, I actually decided to take a look at Sandler's filmography to get as accurate an answer as possible, and boy, it's been some time since my mouth has filled with vomit this quickly.

While a couple movies on the list were acceptable, I didn't get to one that I found objectively passable since 2003's Anger Management. If I wanted to go for one that was actually truly good, however, I'd have to step back to 2002 and give my vote to the genuinely enjoyable Mr. Deeds.
