The Ridiculous 6 [HOT]
After lots of criticism, some of those involved in the production of Ridiculous 6 claim that because the word "ridiculous" is in the title, any offensiveness should be excused because the film is expected to be "ridiculous." Do you agree or disagree with this point of view? Why, or why not?"
The Ridiculous 6
Netflix defended Sandler and the film at the time, telling ABC News in a statement that, \"The movie has ridiculous in the title for a reason: because it is ridiculous. It is a broad satire of Western movies and the stereotypes they popularized, featuring a diverse cast that is not only part of -- but in on -- the joke.\"
RATH: Well, Netflix's response to this - I'll read their statement about the movie - it's called "The Ridiculous Six." They say, quote, "the movie has ridiculous in the title for a reason - because it is ridiculous. It is a broad satire of Western movies and the stereotypes they popularize, featuring a diverse cast that is not only part of, but in on, the joke.
V. SCHILLING: Right. Well, you know, if we're in on the joke, then why can't we be part of the process? So if you want to be ridiculous, great. But then why have a cultural consultant if you're not going to listen to him? I hear what Netflix is saying - yeah, OK, the title's ridiculous - but people are telling native people how to be offended and when they can be offended without consulting them. 041b061a72
