When Is The Sleaze Going To End?

February 12, 2004

This is a nice looking movie poster, but it is deceptive. The movie it advertises is another (almost R-rated) PG13 movie filled with drug content and loaded with Sandler’s typical, non-stop sexual content. It was a little over a year ago when Channel One News spent SEVEN consecutive school days running specially-made commercials for Sandler’s adult cartoon Eight Crazy Nights. Channel One’s web site has been running a contest to get teens and preteens interested in the movie. The Channel One contest is for children 13 or over, but they are advertising to all kids. Also, a preteen can easily enter the contest by misrepresenting their age.

The contract between Sony’s Columbia Pictures and Channel One News must be a long-term deal. It may be lucrative for the Channel One fat cats in New York City, but it is just more dirt for children.
