    A movie whose plot was just exposed to me without my consent, thus ruining my cinema experience. I haven't decided who to sue just yet, but rest assured because of people like this, I will become wealthy off this most heinous of atrocities. ;)

    I am inclined to agree, it's amazing how many people take such foolish actions when things don't go their way. My father always told me, "Shit in one hand, wish in the other, tell me which fills up first." I suppose that's what prevents me from pursuing said lawsuit, and just getting on with my life when I don't get my way? Who knows.

    I don't watch Jodie Foster movies, sans a boycott. ;) Was just poking fun at how it seems everyone finds a problem with everything nowadays.

    Meh, sounds too good to be played in an airplane anyways. ;)

    Let them continue to show Runaway Bride, Pretty Woman, and other Julia Roberts movies :p

    90,000 x $ 8 = $ 720,000

    Their actions will cancel out the loss just because of the publicity.

    This is just like when all those sensitive christians got all pissed at Dogma.. or when all those black folks got pissed at Barbershop for Cedric's comments about Rosa Parks.. by protesting/boycotting a movie/tv show/musical artist you're only doing them a huge favor sales wise.

    So do the flight attendants also believe she is an aeronautic engineer?

    One thing every one should do to Hollywood is to tell them how full of shit they really are.

    First, a boycott isnt a lawsuit. It is a collective decision not to support something.

    I can totally understand why they would boycott something that portrays people of their profession in a negative light. whats wrong with that? Why would they want to support a movie that exacerbates the current tension between the airline industries and their customers, a tension they (flight attendants) feel first-hand? Anyway, they cant force people not to see it, so i dont see the big deal.

    Personally, it looks boring to me and i wasnt planning on seeing it anyway.

    Psst, so all the billions of $$ that advertisers spend to create an image on a product or the nonstop showcasing by the mass media of tragedies as the front running story which usually has some black pers...sorry, some nigger involved in something evil doesn't ingrain itself into peoples psyche as true? Perception is 99% reality; people have gone to the gas chamber/jail for life for an "appearance". If movies can't change anyones perception then why do so many want to be "movie stars"? They want to be movie stars cause they will fuck the best people and get the best stuff. Movies are the most powerful form of social motivation in this Cult of Personality nation we live in.

    Try again.

    Good God you are a fucking moron. Do you honestly think people are going to go see this movie and all of the sudden believe that flight attendants are evil terrorists. Congratulations, I have been here for 9 months and made over 3000 posts, yet only one person has ever been put on my ignore list, but you make lucky number two.

    That and I am not a Jodie Foster fan at all. The only movie I liked that she was in was Silence of the Lambs, but it was not because of her performance.
