Re: Movies that OFFEND you

"Offend" is too strong a word, but I tend to be irked by movies like "Sweet Home Alabama" that suggest that small-town, salt-of-the-earth, country folk are somehow purer and more decent than those snobby, over-educated city slickers . . . .
That's interesting. I have a bit of the opposite feeling. I get irked by the films/shows where every cop in a small town not played by Andy Griffith or Don Knotts is somehow racist or corrupt and the townspeople are inherently rubes.

I guess we all tend to be a little protective of our backgrounds.

Movies like Sweet Home Alabama tend to irk me simply because they are formulaic crap.
