By now I have analysed roughly 150 mainstream movies for my movie chapter, and I can say without a doubt that We're the Millers (2013), starring Jennifer Aniston and Jason Sudeikis, is one of the most pornographic mainstream movies I have ever seen. It's got just about everything: violence against women; humiliated, insulted and silenced women; lesbianism for men's viewing pleasure; and the promotion of incest. And if you watched this movie as a drinking game, taking a shot of tequila every time a character says balls, d*ck or c*ck you would die from alcohol poisoning before the end of the movie.
In keeping with my new pastime of pairing a recent movie with a much older one for analysis I think I will watch Roman Holiday (1953) next...
