My quirky family, among other things

There’s something to say for Disney movies, there really is. Even though they’re dumb, and the animation is going down the drain, they have a way of ending happily, however implausibly. I read an article the other day that I totally agreed with, saying that sometimes PG-13 movies are a nice break from the “reality” of violence and sex and inhumanity of R movies. So maybe Princess Diaries is slightly dumb, but isn’t it a nice thought that unexpected good things can happen to people? Movies like that emphasize the importance of friendships, and give the viewer affirmation that life’s problems are confrontable and even solvable. That’s uplifting. Of course, we’re all so jaded that we just say “Yeah, whatever” but there is that seed of hope planted, at least for idealists like me. So yay for happy-ending movies.
