I kind of agree, as long as this isn't just preaching from some government jerk or a political group like MADD.
If you were to ever see the video taken from the engine of a train as it bears down on a car at a railroad crossing, you would side with this father. It takes more than a mile to stop a moving train. Those engineers have to live with what happens to the people in those cars, too. The scene should never have made it to the final cut in that movie.
I didn't like the train racing scene!
Plus the movie was too long and could have used some editing... maybe 30 minutes worth.
Otherwise, it was a cute show.
Since when did wanting to be safe from drunk drivers become political? I haven't read anything about MADD in a long time; however, I have always thought they were an outstanding organization.
Years ago I belonged to an organization called RID (Remove Intoxicated Drivers). Almost everyone in the organization was a family member of someone killed by a drunk driver. I believe in being proactive, so I joined to try to prevent any of my family from being killed because someone thought it was OK to drive drunk. The members were a wonderful; but, sad group of people. I saw NO ONE with a political agenda. I eventually had to stop attending their meetings because I was too busy with my family. I still admire and respect those people and completely support their cause. Why anyone would be against them is a mystery to me.
Cars racing across oncoming trains have been a staple of the movie industry since its inception. If we're going to start editing out these kinds of scenes, we better bring a lot of scissors.
What about Little Mermaid and Finding Nemo and Shark Tale -- kids have been killed by Sharks, shouldn't all menacing scenes of shark attacks be removed from those movies as well?
