Proud American Reviews
The acting and writing are on par with a LIfetime movie of the week, and there were some winners that stood out from the pack. I especially loved the story of the poor little Vietnamese girl who comes to America, learns English, wins new friends by graduating high school and opens her own software company. It's just one of many true stories that fill this insufferable picture, but you're left wondering just what the point is. There must have been a hundred better ways to rejoice in all the great things abut this country.
The video quality is on par with your average TV movie, and how it made it to theaters, even for just a week, may be the biggest mystery of all. The time creeps by and eventually you're so bored that the laughs dry up and you're left with nothing. I felt more patriotic watching "In the Army Now", but this film is funnier.
It's not un-American hating "Proud American". You're only doing what comes naturally. It's a one-of-a-kind picture, and in this case, that's definitely not a compliment. The songs are atrocious, and the acting is worse.
So please, DO NOT SEE THIS FILM. It screams BS propaganda that will be studied in film classes in 30 years because it is so unbelievably ridiculous and propagandist. Avoid! And I haven't seen seen it!!
Simply consider: If this movie were actually top at the box office, what would it say about its audience? Perhaps some people deeply appreciate social engineering, but it's likely that most are so weakened by societal pressures that they actually buy into this film's overt propaganda, in all its self-conscious glory.
I see children all the time at the schools I teach at. Most little boys I meet want to join the military by the time they're in the 4th grade. Any object is a gun and they want to shoot 'bad guys' for America.
I'm tired of the 911 cover up done by the US government and my fellow citizens' inability to see through the smoke and mirrors game we're all dancing and singing along to.
If something seems funny or doesn't make sense, trust your instinct friends.
Of course American Airlines is putting up a ton of cash to teach all grade-levels some religious extreemists orchestrated the 'largest terrorist' attack in the history of the world. They obviously had a hand in it.
Coca Cola, MasterCard and WalMart... all companies that have more to gain internationally if we just sit back and let them use the name of capitolism and democracy to rob other nation's natural resources and strip them of their basic human rights.
This is not just slipping by.
My mood says, "Grr..". I am not angry or frustrated, I am ENRAGED.
