Lent: Part 2

Soapdish (1991) – There’s a lot I should like about Soapdish, mostly the cast, but I can’t. The twists aren’t subtle–though maybe that’s part of the joke–and the final major twist is needlessly… let’s call it “dated”, to be generous. I do wonder how the cast and crew feel about that ending now, especially given how outspoken some of them are now in support of the LGBT community. Whatever they think now, there will always be a filmed record of them making a ham-fisted joke at the expense of marginalized people.
