So many movies about the super rich behaving very badly to the working class people around them and so few about working class people making them look ridiculous, and helping their friends in the process, because it’s all about aspirational wealth, why bother about a movie about the little guy when you can watch rich people doing shitty things and imagine it’s you and in that dream you can do whatever the hell you want to people because you deserve it
I have a lot of thoughts about it but the most pressing one is that halfway through it my brother turned to me and said “This is like a Marx Brothers movie” and yes absolutely, at least for part of it, but it’s also a huge pet peeve of mine that so many of our culture heroes right now are extremely rich people who use their money to become rich superheroes and we don’t have anyone like the Marx Brothers poking fun at the super rich and social climbers and bamboozling them out of their money
While the wilderness survival skills certainly can’t hurt, it will be empathy, generosity, and courage that we need to survive. Kindness and fairness will be more valuable than any survival skill..We will have to work together. We will have to grow food, educate ourselves, and give people a reason to persevere..Humans evolved attributes such as generosity, altruism, and cooperation because we need them to survive.
