I've read some of the book series that the movie was based on. I also know that they were written by a bored
Moron Mormon housewife. I don't deny her any of the fame or glory that she's gotten as a writer. I think there's a place for everything in the literary world. But I do wish that more parents were taking somewhat of an involvement in understanding what their kids are watching/reading rather than just blindly buying them whatever they want. The series of books relies heavily on the servitude of the female character to the male one, as if silently preaching some archaic religious doctrine. That's great if you're of that faith, but it can be dangerous if you're not.
Opinions and assholes. I've gots both of them. Take it or leave it. I can still ponder why two young people who look like such douchebags are going to be the new idols of American youth come late November. And I can disagree with it if I want to.
