Sexual Harassment makes it possible!
In this film, one of the first themes we are presented with is the ongoing sexual harassment of the lead male character in an elevator by an older lady, to which he only laments that the only women interested in him could be his grandmother. Then, when he is forcibly kissed by the female lead character in the same elevator, he tells his cousin about it and when asked if it was the old lady, he replies: "No, it was a real woman." Umm. So being old takes away your status of being a woman? Seriously? How did this horrid statement make it into the script??? I don't know when or if we will ever get to the point where sexual harassment of any gender is not depicted as some kind of comical interlude or when people will stop being openly hateful towards those who are older. Perhaps one day, in 20 years, we will look back on archaic films such as this and shake our heads in horror the way we now do with inappropriate themes from the 70s or 80s.
