    OK, so I took my kids to see Happy Feet yesterday, and yeah, I shoulda known this going in, but I was really irritated with the agenda-pushingsymbolism. I'd like to have agendas pushed on me at times of my choosing, rather than being ambushed with them. Some people go to movies to be entertained and escape for a little while, not to be brow-beaten. So, a suggestion: Add SB to the rating of any picture that steps up on a soap box. That is all. [/rant]

    Not to pick nits, but to which agendas were you referring?

    The Tap-Dancing Penguin Association of Antarctica, which formerly employed Jack Abramoff.

    But what about polygamist penguins?

    I think polygamy is legal in Antarctica

    Funny stuff....

    But I'm serious. What kind of agenda was being touted? I'm taking my son to see it and would like to know.

    I don't have any plans on seeing this movie, but the question of what agenda is being pushed is really intriguing.

    At roughly 3:30 p.m. EDT today (November 20, 2006), News Corp., Fox's parent company, announced that it was canceling not only the publication of O.J. Simpson's book, If I Did It, but the corresponding Fox television special scheduled to air at the end of the month.

    Half an hour later, during Fox's alleged "business news" program, Your World w/Neil Cavuto, Cavuto was silent on News Corp.'s move but he did have time for a segment bashing the new movie Happy Feet. He said he thought it was "like an animated Inconvenient Truth." He wondered if Hollywood was trying to "sneak one by us," and he claimed the movie has a "hidden agenda" that is "pretty far left."
