After the rapture-related haterade for Kirk Cameron vehicle Left Behind: Tribulation Force, I feel like I owe the fuzzy-haired one at least this. If the American Family Association is going to make movies about law school students who find themselves and True Love through moot court cases about abortion
they should at least acknowledge that they’re totally ripping off the best movie in which college debaters find themselves and True Love through debate championship tournaments where they argue for the repeal of Roe v. Wade in front of the Supreme Court, Listen to Me, which is awesomely terrible:
The assertions that opposing abortion is actually feminist! The hair! The Alphaville “Forever Young“! I actually saw this for the first time in a high school class, and was kind of obsessed with the hilarious awfulness of it for a while. If the folks who are making Atlas Shrugged want to remake this as their follow-up, I would almost certainly go see it, while sneaking a lot of rum into my Coke to ease the pain of the fact that we can’t get pro-choice movies or television shows.
