Happy Gilmore

Conversation between Shooter McGavin and the giant Mr Lawson (Jaws of James Bond fame)
Ah yeah, I remember. :hehe:

For some reason it also reminded me of this mess:

I used to live by a seven foot bloke that looked like him. To me he was Jaws but my kids called him Gilmore.
Just goes to show that every generation has the option of ridiculing oversized people (obviously not to their faces though)

They don't make them like that any more. :thumbup:
They’re not allowed to make them like that anymore.

I noticed it on Sky Cinema the other week. Had this in the description....

“This film has outdated attitudes, language and cultural depictions which may cause offence today.”

I'd rather they wrote the warning than edited the film to suit the wokies

The values espoused in Trading Places are better than most modern films when you scratch the surface. I can't imagine anyone takes the exaggerated stereotypes too seriously.

I‘d rather they just leave things alone instead of pandering to a tiny vocal minority.

Noticed it a lot on sky sports of late - banging on about hate crime, equality, etc. while shoehorning in women, brown people etc. to try and show how inclusive they are.

Was watching it the other day when they interviewed that yellow looking England rugby coach. Asked him about the rugby for a bit then started going on about some footballer getting abuse on Twitter for some reason. His reply was “it’s all a bit pathetic, people should just ignore it and not give them the publicity but I’d rather concentrate on the rugby anyway” to which the interview abruptly ended and they cut back to the studio to a black bloke who looked a bit shell shocked that somebody had expressed a different point of view to the one that they expect everyone to trot out.

I imagine the warnings were for Dan Aykroyd blacking up, which definitely wouldn't have happened had the film been made today. Everything else in the film was clearly satire.
