Hope this wasn't covered before: Does this movie really deserve the responce its getting from the mentally challenged. Robert Downy Jr. Jack Black, Ben Stiller, Tom Cruise, Nick Nolte. With a cast like this I doubt it's all that tasteless. I saw crouds picking somewhere with signs saying Retard is hate speech. Thats retarded. Way back when I was in school we called for short, people in special education speds. I guess that would get you in big trouble today. Does this mean its ok for one mentally challenged person to call another mentally challenged person "retard"?
