When it comes to movies I have a hard time swallowing gross inaccuracies. My husband just got The Bee movie from Netflix and it was just awful! All the plants withered up and died just because the bees stopped pollinating. Yeah right! The worst that would happed is that plants would not reproduce (never mind that not every plant in the world is pollinated by honey bees). They would be bad for us and our food chain, but the plants would not die because of that. Even worse was that they "saved" the world by using rose pollen to pollinate all the dying plants, because as we all know, roses are the universal pollinator.
Years ago there was a movie (that was also a cartoon) about cattle. Every time I saw the advertisement for it I wanted to throw a brick at the TV. Why? The main characters, which were male, had udders! Udders on a bull!!! I understand why they did not draw an anatomically correct bull, but come on people! My husband thought I was nuts for yelling at the tv, but I just could not help it. Udders on a bull!!!!
I think it is a good thing that we have stopped watching regular TV. It is better for my anger management. Now if I could just get my husband to be more discerning in his movie rentals I would be a happy woman.
What are some of your pet peeves?
