The movie looks meh. I haven't read the book although I was given a copy of the book in a gift exchange and plan to read it eventually. If there are good reviews, I'll check it out.
I'm actually far more offended by the author begging people to see it despite his ignorant beliefs. "Boo hoo, people don't like me because I hate a minority and want to see them have no rights. Now that I'm on the wrong side of history, people aren't going to support me as much. Please be nicer to me than I am to those I want to see oppressed."
It's pathetic. If you're going to be a bigot, don't be a whiny one when people start calling you on.
