Are Children Worth It?

by Jennifer Roback Morse

Let us state it at once: Revolutionary Road is a bad movie, despite the awards it garnered from its Hollywood peers. The story is Hollywood's fantasy of the stultifying life in the 1950's suburbs. Unbelievable storyline, unsympathetic characters, and a socially irresponsible message: evidently these are the requirements for Hollywood awards.

Long time reader, first-time commenter. I just wanted to applaud your willingness to actually see the movie! American Beauty is without a doubt the most irritatingly bad movie I've ever seen. What a shame that great actors are, again it seems, employed to such a pretentious and vacuous end. I couldn't imagine willingly subjecting myself to this movie, so I wanted to thank you for giving up several hours of your life to do so!
