I think the whole show sounds horrible. And shows how ignorant the makers are.
Why would you purposefully use the name "unitards"--knowing that the
last syllable would be offensive? Why would you purposefully create a group to
segregate? I think it all sounds horrible. By the way, this film was brought to
my attention by a young man who is a friend of mine who has an intellectual
disability. HE WAS OFFENDED BY THE TITLE!I don't care what kind of
"explanation" they have written into the film. The whole thing sounds
FormerUT,A unitard is an article of clothing used in dance that is
thin and sleek like lingerie, but without the sexual conotations. I'm sorry that
the young man was offended, but that's society's fault. There are so many words
that have alternate slang definitions, but we can't just throw those words out.
And I don't know if this will be a good movie, but claiming that an
all-male dance group is segretory is inaccurate. The existence of all-female
dance groups is what's segretory to begin with. This is an example of equality
for high school guys who want to have a good time entertaining others. it seems
a little girly, but it's fun for students to see their peers loosen up and have
fun.I am sure it was a fun project and a great accomplishment that
allowed these friends to share fun memories.
I'm afraid many will not hear the dialogue "specifically designed to
clarify any misunderstanding and diffuse any possible misinterpretation" of
the unfortunate name of this film. The name/title itself will keep many away.
There are a few words that people no longer use at all and the one this
movie uses as part of its title is one of those words...
By the commercials I have seen this looks a waste of your money. I mean it may
have good intentions and probably a great message, at the same time though when
you could go see Mission Impossible or a bunch of high school boys in tights
your not going to have much interest from the general public. Save your money,it
will most likely be shown on BYU tv in couple months from now followed by The
Best Two Years.
