Spot the Newest Low

Comment

The poobahs of our popular culture never seem happy unless they're taking entertainment down to the "next level" of deviancy. When they undertake remakes of Hollywood classics — especially the comedies — that's when you see how far we've fallen.

The forthcoming modern-day adaptation of "The Three Stooges" isn't going to be a celebration of that iconic family comedy. The trailer features Moe poking the eyes of "Snooki" Polizzi from the uber-sleazy MTV show "Jersey Shore." But that's nothing compared to the real absurdity of 19-year-old Sports Illustrated swimsuit model Kate Upton playing a nun at the orphanage where the Stooges grew up.

Not just a nun but a swimsuit-model nun. In the trailer, Upton emerges from a swimming pool in a tiny black bikini, a rosary hanging around her neck, and a traditional habit on her head. As Moe and Larry lewdly gawk at her, Curly says, "Hiya Sister Bernice. There's something different about you. Did you get a haircut?"

Religious sisters take a vow of chastity. Hollywood loves to mock the Catholic Church for being out of touch. Conclusion: Mock the chastity of nuns.

(But in a thousand years, would those brave Hollywood souls have the courage to mock a Muslim burqa?)

The cutting edge of the culture is defined by the latest video from Jennifer Lopez, which features simulated orgy scenes. The video, for her new song "Dance Again," was displayed on "American Idol" recently. Here's what's interesting: They featured a section of the video — without orgy scenes — but they still encouraged children to see more of the video on YouTube. It already has over 14 million views. It is safe to conclude that millions of parents have no idea their children have been exposed to this garbage.

Hollywood has a bizarre attachment to orgies. For critics of TV raunch, the J. Lo orgy clips resemble the controversial 2003 teenager orgy scene on the CBS drama "Without a Trace," where somehow the people participating in the orgy were still in their underwear for television. The orgy is merely implied. There also was the 2005 Ying Yang Twins rap video for "Wait (The Whisper Song)," in which the two male rap stars laid on the floor in a mob of writhing, scantily clad women.

In her video, Lopez in a sleeveless black dress and fishnet stockings, slowly falls from above into the interlocking bodies of the orgy and then sings "I love to make love to you, baby." (And 43 other people?) Her skirt is ripped off.

Some of the writhing women in the Lopez video are wearing sunglasses or Lone Ranger masks. I wouldn't want to show my face in this crud, either.

But there's always a lower new low. On episode 12 of the upcoming HBO "mockumentary" series "Angry Boys," they feature a young girl sipping through a straw from a very anatomically correct penis-and-testicles cup. It resembles something called the "Pink Dicky Sport Bottle," sold to adults in sex shops.

How young is this child? Try ... between 4 and 6.

Is HBO really proud of this program, squeezing laughs out of having a preschool actress suck on a plastic penis? Actress Deni Lindholm was found through a company called "Bubblegum Casting," which normally handles child models for department store ads.

"Angry Boys" is made by Australian comedian Chris Lilley, known primarily by "his willingness to push the obtuseness, nastiness and general cluelessness of his characters," reports The New York Times. Naturally, HBO was desperate to co-produce this sludge.

The nasty character in this case (played by Lilley in drag) is a ruthless, clueless Japanese mother named Jen Okazaki who is trying to exploit the skateboarding career of her son Tim, including floating the (untrue) rumor that he is gay and then starting a company called Gaystyle Enterprises. When that fails, viewers learn that she was left with a veritable warehouse full of unsold sex products, but she says, "I've found it quite useful for decorating around the new house."

The blogger Weekend Libertarian quotes more of this routine: "The c—k cushions — just a scatter cushion, um, like so. We have just a c—k box (for the television) here where I put my remote." Penis products are everywhere, with no thought for the impressionable child actors.

The child character, Cindy Okazaki, is mocked as an unfortunate afterthought. The mother says "being a household mom is s—-. You have to constantly look after your children." And: "I never wanted a third child, so when Cindy came along, I was a little disappointed, but what can you do?" The character says this ... while holding the child. This is meant to be hilarious.

What Ross Perot called "that giant sucking sound" could be applied to Hollywood, which is perennially dragging whatever we could call our public morality down to the ugliest, most malodorous sewer. The well gets only deeper.

Gee, L. Brent,

For someone who supposedly hates smut, you seem to be an expert on anything in the smut genre, how much time do you devote to smut, hollywood vice, and porn? The expertise in your article shows not only an extroadinary knowledge, but an obsession with all things dirty, I guess you spend all day long reasearching this "filthy" stuff.You remind me of the guy who is a born again Christian that rales about porn, and of course he is familiar with every movie. Remember Larry Flynt, the pruny old fart prosecuter was an expert on porn,

Why don't you just admit that you're human and have a natural titilation to Jennifer Lopez, racy videos, and sexy movies and pictures?

Thou protest too much, you hypocrite.

By the way, sexy videos have been around since the 80's, remember Madonna? The earth hasn't fallen off its axis, the world hasn't ended, and kids are no more warped then they were when everyone ran around in a faint because of Elvis shaking his hips and rock n roll.

Women raised their skirts, showed their ankles, and my GOD wore a bathing suit. Horrors, run children, run......

Here's a news flash for your, Queen Victoria is dead, the Puritans are gone, and stop watching that smut, it's no good for you, you'll grow hair on your hands. PS, Jennifer Lopez's new video was awful, those videos are a young girls game, she's way to old. God, do I feel sorry for your wife and family, living with you must be hell.

Conservative Mantra: I want to decide what you enjoy to watch and read, because it's all about me....

The parents of these children have allowed their children to be sacrificed on the altar of the almighty god, money.
Vile and contemptible to allow children to be exposed to this profanity.
I only know of twitter, those who know how to use it, now's the time. Children should never be exploited in this manner or exposed to what becomes filth when a child is involved. It degrades all of us that this is tolerated.

Steve,

Times change, my mother was horrified that I loved the Beatles, parents were horrified by Flappers, the Charleston and gin drinking.

Kids still get Ph.D's and become Rhodes scholars. If an 18 year old wants to be a musician in the MTV genre, it's not the end of the world, Madonna's is old enough to be a grandmother, and Gene Simmons from Kiss just endorsed Romney.

The worlds still turning,

Your Friend, Bloom

Ms. Bloom, the impressionable child or children involved in the performance aged less than 4-6 turn sexual entertainment into exploitation. Sexual fun among adults becomes filth and one would hope illegal, when children are involved even peripherally. On this topic I am not and never will be open to other opinions.

Re: Steve

I agree Steve, I wasn't talking about 4 and 6 year olds, of course what children are exposed to should be absolutely monitered, my children had classical music on a low volume in their room at night, whenever in bed, from their first day on earth until they wanted something different. I agree with you, the MTV genre is for teens, and young adults.
We agree to agree

L. Brent is trying to censor the biggest group of MTV watchers which is late teens, college age, and other young adults, they will make their own decisions at that age regarding their so called "entertainment". My son is 21, he finds the sexual videos boring, he watches for two seconds and surfs to something else. The reality is that the videos are all the same, the costumes, the dance moves, the music, most kids have lost interest. The producers are using the same formula that worked 25 years ago with Madonna's videos. My son and his friends would rather be fishing on the gulf than watch what they see as boring. Frankly, I find fishing boring.............


Conservative Mantra: Everyone gets to watch what I deem as acceptable, It's all about me.

I love it! the Libs are mad again because Bozell called their trash out. How dare anyone not accept this Hollywood garbage. Name calling, ok with EVERYTHING attitude. If they were really confident in their beliefs, they would not comment on articles by anyone who disagreed with them.

No where in this article does it threaten freedom of speech, as ugly as some of it may be. However, If we don't support it, they won't be able to make it anymore. Simple.

Hey Libs - follow your own "beliefs" - don't like his comments, don't read them. Works for me and CNN, NBC, ABC, etc, etc.

Good job libs, keep up the good work. You resemble the fools you are with your comments.
