    Has to be one of the five funniest movies ever made, and I can't name the other four movies that are worth more laughs!

    Send two of those N*****s!"


    Damn that is a funny movie.

    I've often wondered why the fart scene didn't win a special catagory Acadamy Award like Best Sound Reproduction of Flatulence in Live Action.

    Racist?

    In that movie the white folks are ignorant idiots, the blacks Irish and Chinese are clever and hardworking, and in particular, the blacks are hip, cultured, clever, forthright, and honest while white folks are dummies or else money-grubbing meanies

    It's a cultural satire. Brooks skewers the racists in that film. You didn't notice? [:D]

    thanks for getting my point


    10 years ago you could watch that unedited on any tv channel, now in todays "pc" world the only thing edited is the "n word"

    and the irony is??

    not true. They edited the fart scene last time I seen it on television

    also the campfire scene flatulence noise was replace by horse whinnies...PC now where any gory crap is OK like csi miami or kids portrayed in violence compared to the deleted from this old movie doesn't make any sense....

    It makes little sense.
    My best example of this is Die Hard 4...the other Die Hard movies are rated R...then new one is PG-13.
    Now it has all the same violence, and probably more of it, than any other Die Hard. Why is it rated PG-13??? ANSWER: John McClane does not drop his signature f-bombs.

    So f-bombs are bad but real bombs tearing someone's guts out are acceptable [B)]

    The irony is that when I quoted you, you said your point was "35 years ago you didn't know you were racist"

    Now you refine that point in the meantime as if I'm supposed to be a mind reader, and think I'm missing something. That's the irony

    Or were you making an attempt to be rhetorical? Hey look, I'm with you here but you can't say "thanks for proving my point" and then change what your point was. If your point was that 35 years ago this was OK on TV, you should have said so to begin with instead of making your vague "didn't know you were racist" point

    i didn't change my point, just added another one

    35 years ago that wasn't considered racist by anyone, it was humor nothing more, by today's standard that movie would have twice as many protesters than viewers, lawsuits abundant, careers ruined


    the irony is found in many ways one is that only one race in the entire film is edited "the n-word", but the scene stereotyping blacks as having huge male members is acceptable

    An addition is something many folks would call a change [;)]
