    Default Make that today? No way!

    So the post in the coffee thread with Airplane had me thinkin g about movies from the past that were great at the time but would not get made today for whatever reason.

    What do you think some of those movies or tv shows would be? And why?

    Blazing Saddles for obvious reasons.
    There came a time when the Old Gods died! The Brave died with the Cunning! The Noble perished locked in battle with unleashed Evil! It was the last day for them! An ancient era was passing in fiery holocaust!

    Song of the South
    Gone with the Wind
    The Birth of a Nation

    Probably quite a few more in that vein...

    It’s sad one of the greatest comedies of all time wouldn’t be green lit nowadays because ppl have gotten so thin skinned.

    Revenge of the Nerds
    Breakfast club or Pretty Pink- I can't remember which one but it is one with clear consent issues and a horrible Asian caricature of a character
    America Pie

    I remember in Revenge of the Nerds the main nerd put on a mask and had sex with the main bullies gf because she thought it was him. Pretty much rape. But of course she was okay with it because he was good in the sack and they fell in love.

    No way with the me too movement that flies today.

    I was just watching part of The World The Flesh and The Devil. Fortunately now there would be nothing wrong with Harry Belafonte and Inga Steven's from hooking up.

    Hell, you can't even watch the original today. It's as likely you'll get to see Song of the South as it is you'll get to see that Jerry Lewis clown in a concentration camp movie.

    As for a movie that wouldn't be made today? Porkys.

    It was Sixteen Candles. That was the biggest offender, but most John Hughes movies had racial issues and several had consent issues as well.

    Curious: why could you not get away with The Breakfast Club?

    It's odd that folks go right to Blazing Saddles.

    Silver Streak is the one where I wind up thinking "There's Just No Way..."

    Tend to think the same Bustin' Loose. While the film is a real piece of "Has Been Slept On..." quality, I just can't see the way that it was just "Cards On The Table..." about Annie having been a child prostitute flying in the here and now.

    You very much could. How many parodies of it, or how many shows have that Breakfast Club rip off episode?

    From the description?

    I'd guess 16 Candles was actually the film being described.

    Pretty Baby. Full frontal nudity of 12-year-old Brooke Shields. Or Blue Lagoon and Endless Love, in which she was strongly sexualized as a minor.
