I remember seeing an interiew with John Cleese once, and he was talking about the 'PC' people. He had a great line about that, "People who say 'I'm not a prude, but...' When what they really mean to say is, "I am a prude and..."

I myself am not a prude, but...

I was finding myself being taken a little aback at the recent review of Red Silk http://www.dvdtalk.com/reviews/read.php?ID=15412 I have no quarrel with the reviewer's distaste for the movie, but halfway through reading it I began to feel uncomfortible with their characterization of the two woman in the movie.

In the review, the leads are cleaverly referred to as:
gnarled up wenches
chewed up chicks
STD ridden skanks
sleazy slags
over the hill hose bags

on and on and on. I get it, you think the woman in the movie are ugly. I think the review sounds like a couple of adolencents trying to sound like big men by displaying the high standards they hold for the girls they gawk at in Hustler. And damn those bitches who offend their delicate sensiblities.

I don't know. It seemed way too ugly.

"I am a prude, and..."

The review reads a lot funnier if you imagine it was written by the love-child of Gene Shalit and Rex Reed.
