Last night, our family and I watched one of the newest movies nowadays “that’s my boy”. Since it was our family movie night, my parents and I, along with my 8-year-old brother and 14 year old sister watched with us. It was the latest movie of Adam Sandler, so we expected it to be another one of those humorous slapstick movies. But, right at the first scene, we had to take our brother out of the room, and changed the movie. Why? because right at the start, it showed a scene of a horny teacher wanting to have sex with her student. My first opinion was “what the heck?”
The following scenes after that showed even more sexual content. From a horny grandma, to a scene that implies Viagra and other stuff I don’t want to talk about on my blog, then again: “What the heck Adam Sandler?”
Ok, I know it’s mean. But I was just used to him making great movies that could be watched by the entire family, and not by a lonely man with nothing to do on a weekend night.
So, we decided to watch something else that night, but I felt hardly insulted by that.
A few days later, I got bored one day, and I decided to watch another movie (alone this time). It was from one of my favorite comedy actors: Will Ferrel. “The Campaign”
At first, I found it nice, another great movie to watch, until they showed a very indecent scene. Then, another, where he used words that aren’t suitable for young audiences.
And before I actually got to enjoy the comedy of it all, I stopped watching it and decided to watch something else.
Seriously, what has happened to movies nowadays? I mean, comedy movies before like “Bruce Almighty” or “The Truman Show” or even “The Hottie and the Nottie”. All three were great movies, all with humorous lines, but also touching stories. But, they didn’t contain sex. They were famous during their time, but they didn’t do anything sexual (well, except Bruce Almighty, but it was very indirect).All had heart-warming romances, without sex.
Seriously, what’s wrong with the media nowadays? Why does most songs nowadays always have to do with sex as if its the greatest thing in the world, or movies showing that men are sex addicts, or even erotic books that circle more or less about sex. And yet they complain about the world being over populated, and that teen sex was becoming rampant, when they themselves create the things that would tempt these people into doing it.
Sex isn’t everything. And nowadays, they think that love always has to have sex in it. That, women can control the world.
Seriously, i know sex sells and all, but they don’t have to overuse it. I hope that the world would not make it such a big deal because yes, it may feel good…
Let’s remember that, there’s more to it, and life has a lot more to offer than just that.
