I agree with Gene Wilder,I screen movies very carefully not only for bad language and curses ,but also for sex content ,violence.
I need a movie that has a good human message,hope courage,frankly I do not have time for Hollywood garbage and mega bucks films.I ca\n choose where to spend my money and when I travel by air I pick and choose

Today movies are bad example for all

I barely go to the movies nowadays. The swearing, the violence,the aggression are the good examples producers are giving to the youngsters and children all over the world.

Movies today are just filthier than the past. They were funny entertaining and well done.

Mr. Wilder is absolutely correct. If he is overwhelmed by the language content, you better believe they are filthy, violent, have perverted language. And, guess what send the wrong role modeling language to us, as Jews, and our children. They''re only getting worse and worse.
