Mid Life Crisis Comedy or Comedic Prophecy ?
on December 25, 2003
At the time the film was made it was simply a truly funny film about male mid life crisis. Bo started a craze with both men and women with her cornrow hairstyle and perfect body and Moore became everyman. What's most telling to me about the film isn't so much what it had to say about the time in which it was filmed, but rather, how much truth the film still reveals today. It's been twenty years since it's release and western men and women are still obssessed with youth, beauty and physical perfection, as if possessing these traits either ourselves or in our mates, we will somehow possess the key that unlocks the door to sexual, spiritual, and emotional bliss. Moore's character learned his lesson...too bad society as a whole is still stumbling down the beach in pursuit of a fantasy "10" that never exsisted in the first place.
