The Association of Flight Attendants is urging their members to boycott Jodie Foster's new film FlightPlan, which apparently depicts flight attendants as "rude, unhelpful and uncaring", and includes flight attendant terrorists.
I don't want to be rude here, but what the hank! How boring would Serpico have been if it was filled with honest cops! Would Groundhog Day even have been made into a movie if it featured a happy-go-lucky caring weatherman? Should robots boycott Stanley Kubrick's 2001: A Space Odessey because it depicts a computer as an psychopathic killer?
Flightplan may depict Flight Attendants as "rude, unhelpful and uncaring", but this boycotting action paints them as people unable to differentiate between fiction and reality. Flight Attendants are not stupid people, and I'm sure they will ignore this ridiculous mandate. It's a story. Get over it.
On the plus side, we now know that there is an Association of Flight Attendants. I'm a better person now! Get them a better pension! Don't tell them what movies they should watch.
