Shadowknight: One of my favorite moments of failure was when the Muppet movie came out a few years back.  The puppets were doing a junket interview thing, which was hilariously absurd already.  Everyone was asking them silly questions, and just having fun with it.  Some toolbag from Fox News asked Kermit (I know, right?) what he thought of the obvious left leaning aspect of his movie, and how they made their main villain an oil company tycoon.

This guy proceeded to get his ass handed to him by Steve Whitmire (Kermit) and Frank Oz (Miss Piggy). You know what, I'll just link it.



They've got a point. Liberals refuse to leave kids alone when it comes to an oppurtunity to brainwash them into accepting an agenda.

 I mean, you'd never see a conservative pundit pushing a children's boo-, okay, bad example. What I meant was you'd never see a Republican presidential contender putting out children's videos full of historical revis-, okay, strike that one. One thing you'll definitely never see a sitting Republican senator stooping so low as to release a coloring bo-, goddammit.

Monkeyfark Ridiculous: stoli n coke: Yes, I'm sure Hollywood spent $60 million and marketed the hell out of this movie because they are anti-business.

I'm starting to wonder how these Fox News idiots don't forget to breathe.

No, no, you're missing the point: this is about LEGO, not some huge corporation that rakes in billions in revenues every year and is arguably the most valuable toy company in the w--

I don't know, maybe they have little reminders to breathe written on their palms Palin-style.


Can't we just wash their hands?

My favorite was when they attacked The Hudsucker Proxy (great movie, btw) for being anti-business.

That's right; a movie about a guy who, to save his company, invents a product that brings in profit... for FOX News, that's anti-business

AV Club article: http://www.avclub.com/article/fox-news-decries-movie-designed-explici t ly-to-sell-107610


As Dergarabedian goes on to suggest implicitly that calling a major studio's marketing synergy-based movie franchise "anti-business" might be overreaching, Payne replies that it at least sounds like "hypocrisy" to him. A hypocrisy that may result in the children who see it developing antagonistic attitudes toward business, even as they demand their parents buy them more Lego bricks.

Having pointed out the hypocrisy of a media company using bobbleheads to decry the very things they profit from, Payne returned to complaining about entertainment for Fox.

How the hell is a 90-minute toy commercial that *people are going to pay to see* supposed to be "anti-business"?!?

Sounds to me like the people at LEGO know a lot more about business than the empty-headed commentators at FOX.

My only concern is if there's enough Will Farrell to make this a Will Farrell movie. I have yet to watch a movie focused on him and I refuse to break that streak.

That is the problem when you value money and material possessions too much. You make odd sounding statements. It seems there are two broad groups in this country.

Those that love people and use things.

And those that love things and use people.
