Date Movie Makes Light of Attacks on Homeless People

Please Do Not Go See Date Movie

After the much publicized beating death of a homeless person in Florida, it is unbelievable that a new Hollywood movie would make light of beating up homeless people. I just do not understand the humor in this scene. This was taken from Screen It.com from the just released move "Date Movie."
"Yelling 'Bum fight,' Julia (Alyson Hannigan) rushes over to a bum on the street, punches and then repeatedly kicks and hits him (all played as a spoof of lighthearted romantic comedy montages). Grant (Adam Campbell) then joins her, kicking the guy in the crotch before the two rob him."
Please do not spend money on this movie. It is disgusting and inappropriate at this time. Thank you 20th Century Fox and thank you to the Scary Movie writers/directors for showing why America is the only country in the world with real freedom of speech-- and why we are the only country with stupid people willing to abuse that power so that others will want to end that freedom.
