As if any of them are going to see a movie staring a black guy anyway.
Actually Jane as Nancy isn't that bad. It's ALAN RICKMAN as REAGAN and JOHN CUSACK as NIXON that are ridiculous.
Yeah, I have a feeling this movie is going to be a mess. Lee Daniels got lucky when Sidibe and Mo'Nique saved Precious from being risible, and just barely. And I don't think the Oprah scenes are going to work because no one is going to be able to see past OPRAH.
R6, what do you mean? Oprah's lost all that weight again...
I love it that they hired Jane Fonda for Nancy! She's a brilliant actress and she'll probably do a fantastic job. And Nancy likes her. So the irony and the humor in their selection is wonderfully delicious. I'm glad they used some imagination.
How much shit? A little - it doesn't take much these days for this dumbed down culture to go postal about anything - but I wouldn't worry about it.

That's not the problem. Jane Fonda is deemed a communist and traitor to her country by Conservatives. They want her executed. Reagan is their god. That's the point of the thread.
I can assure you that Conservatives are pretty much over both Jane and Nancy. At this point we would watch it just like anyone else, to see how well they pull it off.
I think they'll be more upset to hear that Dame Edna will be playing Barbara Bush.

They flocked to Jane's book signing a few years ago and spat in her face. Where have you been? They've never forgotten.
When Fonda apologizes for her traitorous and treasonous actions during the Vietnam movie which btw would have gotten her executed in another time, I'll see The Butler. But probably not.
Her treasonous actions during the "Vietnam movie," R14? Coming Home wasn't my favorite, but I'd hardly shoot somebody over it!
Would you like it if Patricia Heaton played Hillary or Stacey Dash portrayed Michelle Obama?
My guess is Nancy will be played sympathetically. Nancy was much publicly hated during her tenure as First Lady because she came across as so arrogant and controlling to the press, and because everyone knew what a cold mother and stepmother she was to all the Reagan children except Ron Jr.; but from most reports she was pretty nice to the household staff.
Who the hell is Stacey Dash?

Boo Hoo R14. Jane made her frotune in the 80s with her Frau exercise videos. I am sure she is not waiting around for your 6 dollars.
And for the record, treasonous actions are when lie to American about weapons of mass distructions so you can start 2 different wars.
Condoleezza Rice "mushroom cloud" lie was treasonous. She knew when she said that there were no such thing discovered.
Wow. She does look like Nancy. And such ironic casting...
Knowing Nancy's star-fucker essence and her vanity, I bet she cares less about whether the actress playing her is a liberal and more about how big a star the actress is and how pretty she is. On both counts, she's probably much more pleased with the casting of Jane Fonda than she was with Judy Davis in that TV miniseries.
If anything, she probably thinks Alan Rickman is not a big enough star and not handsome enough to play Ronnie. (And I might agree with her on the latter point!)
A lot of the old conservatives who went apeshit at the mere mention of Jane Fonda's name have died off. It was a long, long time ago.
