Pretty Persuasion -vvz


Official Movie Site
This is a black comedy about a teenage sociopath accusing her teacher of sexual harassment. It's pretty funny in the most politically incorrect ways but unfortunately, when screened in such a small theatre, it felt strange to be one of the few people laughing when you caught a joke that most did not. This is a movie Shuquan should watch because a large part of the humour is derived from porn, a variety of sexual practices, lesbianism, school girl fetish, racial stereotypes, dysfunctional america, etc., which is something not everyone can appreciate. Here are some memorable quotes from the movie. They happen to be lines by the main character Kimberly Joyce, played brilliantly by Evan Rachel Wood.

Kimberly: "I have respect for all races...but I'm very glad that I was born white."

Kimberly: "And, Josh, at least my dad isn't a money-grubbing Jew shyster who lets criminals go free!"
(Turns around to find the whole school staring at her)
Kimberly: "Oops. Rewind."

Kimberly reads her detention essay (note: the delivery here was excellent):
"I have misbehaved. Some adjectives that could be used to describe my behavior include bad... naughty... mischievous... nasty... and downright inconsiderate. I should know better than to talk in class. My mother always taught me not to talk too much... and when I did, she used to spank me. She'd spank me so hard that it hurt. In conclusion, I have learned my lesson and I promise not to misbehave in the future. But if I do... I will gladly accept any punishment... you choose to hand down."

It means I think you're someone who can appreciate this brand of humour. Some people can get offended and others don't even get the joke.
