"This is a tough movie...about real people!"

John Stewart cracked a brilliant joke his first time 'round at the Oscars that once Hollywood deigned to make a movie about some social problem, of course, that problem was solved forever.

It may not make much sense to point this out on a movie blog, but really, it's a good idea to know when to say when. It's not like the first go 'round was really all that.

This doesn't feel like socially conscious filmmaking, it's cashing in. No problem-solving here. It's like a fucking outtake from The Player.
