I couldn’t finish the review. Brad is great as always but the clips from the movie were cringey as anything. No wonder Disney doesn’t want to release it again.

The movie isn’t THAT bad. Also, it’s movies like this that give people like Brad their weekly paycheck.

I’m not saying Brad should stop reviewing, far from it in fact. He’s awesome. I’m saying the clips shown from the movie, specifically the live action parts, made me cringe to such an extent that I could not finish watching.

With the way America is right now, I’m hoping that their are plenty of Confederacy jokes in this week’s episode. My local library actually has a copy of this movie on DVD. No joke. 8:31- (Singing) “Negros are inferior in every way.” …What? I had to mention that SNL reference somehow. 9:38- I would say “Y’know, for kids,” but the rating system wasn’t around for another 2 decades. 11:39- At least this mother isn’t about as racist as Sarah Paulson in “12 Years a Slave.” 12:36- Unless Tobe’s last name is Fair, I am not interested. 15:31- Yeah, I also… Read more »

All racial controversy aside, this movie’s biggest crime is that it’s boring. I mean, really, who cares what meager problems this little snot goes through? If you were white and rich in the Old South, there were far worse fates you could experience than having to live on a plantation. As the Snob himself said: “Stop trying to make the former slave feel sorry for you!”.

This. What the film should have been was just a collection of animated stories, with Uncle Remus himself as the main character, focusing on his situation, or maybe even just acting as narrator. Leave the little kid out of it.

There still would have been problems – there were with the original book. But at least the book was written as an attempt to show how post-war blacks continued to suffer in the South.

If they really thought they needed a white kid in the mix, I wouldn’t have objected if the little girl was the focal point for the movie. She was a whole lot more likeable than Johnny.

Or here’s an idea: have the foppish kid be annoyingly racist. Have him not able to understand the plight of these dark-skinned people on his plantation, but still thinking that he owns them, bossing them around, thinking he’s better than them, and the like. And have him learn, through his interactions with Uncle Remus, to not be an asshole.

That would actually make for a better parallel between Jonny and Br’er Rabbit. Who acts like he’s entitled to attention from everybody he comes across. He says the tar baby has no manner and so he’s going to assault him?! Hey Br’er dumbass, did it ever occur to you that maybe the tar baby is deaf?

Frankly it wouldn’t have been so bad having Uncle Remus teaching these white kids a lesson or two their been more emphasis on his teaching role for kids in his “own” family.
