Well, am I prudish, or off-track in any way? Cuz I saw that 'lesson' as being shoved down Shane's throat inappropriately. If he asked for such a talk, it could have been done in a less-crass manner. But with the look on his face, he did not want to be there listening to a 40yo 'teach' him ALL about masturbation.

His mother asked that guy to talk to Shane and give him advice so as not to "mess-up socks." Right! Bull Sht!! It was just a foil for the producer to kick-down another personal boundary and smash it to bits for all of society to leverage.

The slick 'talk' was of a very very taboo subject for boys that age. They don't want to talk about it in general, and certainly not with a 40yo man. I would have been mortified into the ground if i were in Shane's shoes.

Microwaved bannana peels????? WTF!

My son is 11. They had the "lesson" at school a few weeks ago. The one where they talk only about the changes their bodies are going to go through etc. It mentions "erections" and "wet Dreams" but nothing actually about sex at this point. Just the "What to expect" kinda thing.

He was so HORRIBLY uncomfortable with the whole deal. Although him and I had talked about a few things previously, so it wasn't like it was all new ground for him.

So yeah.... I've never watched "weeds" and am so happy that I haven't. The deal is, the TV/Movie industry is obviously rife with those who either A. Don't care who they hurt or B. Wish they could actually be the ones doing the hurting.

Last night in ABC's Nightline (5/7/12) they had a piece about teens and sub-teens becoming addicted to internet porn.

There are so many reasons that this is just so wrong. The tired argument that it has never been an issue before ignores the fact that we are supposed to be more enlightened about this than we were in the 70's or 80's or even the 90's. That enlightenment should result from a better educated public and lead to deeper sensitivity of the topic ... not traits I have associated with Sandler in the past.

Adam Sandler makes a joke out of statutory rape

And about the idea that if we get "too sensitive about normalcy impeding on our world, we'll bash anything we think is an afront," I might respectfully add that I find those arguments usually reveal the problem to be insufficient sensitivity on the part of people who have no stake in the matter rather than oversensitivity on the part of those who do. Many of us here at MS know that all too well - whether we are survivors of CSA or of adult male sexual assault. I personally believe that it is that very line of thinking that ultimately excused otherwise responsible adults from intervening in the Penn State sex scandal. The solution in the final analysis is education - opening our eyes and ears and widening our perspectives of others. We ARE our brothers' keepers - that's called humanity.

When is the release date for this film? In the UK they're hoping to escape any bad press (and the Olympics) with a mid-September release.

So for the moment, if That's My Boy is a Sony/Columbia movie it makes more sense to boycott Spider Man as well, that's the more immediate money maker. Then I just have to hope that the BBC isn't dumb enough to buy it in a rights package for TV.

Possibly a related problem is that movies like that featuring Sandler are all "pushed" by guys like Jay Lenno, Dave Letterman, and Jimmy Kimmel. They must have a standing agreement with certain studios to air what they consider their most important films. The studio audience and presumbably the TV audience just lap it up, like a dog lapping up a piece of crap.

Maybe we should be writing to these hosts and request that they ask Sandler about how he squares promoting his movie this way with actual survivors and families of survivors who know it is no joke. My impression is that Letterman is particularly savvy, sensitive, and smart about related issues, direct and peripheral, whereas other hosts tend to keep a more narrow focus on the laughs. I could be wrong - but I've seen Letterman do that. Even more so, I would imagine Jon Stewart would certainly create a challenge.

Gosh, this movie sounds even more-what-it-is, every minute. How about "THAT'S MY BOYCOTT"?

A movie that seems to me to be somewhat similar is named The Graduate. It came out at the end of 1967.

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0061722/

It features a young guy being seduced by a married woman. I felt scandalized by the movie then. The world was a simpler place then, but I had a lot of emotions from my own traumas. Now that I look at the trailer, it seems that the publicity on The Graduate was geared to seduce the potential viewer.
