Movies about entitled pieces of shit.

I'm watching "Monsters" now - a low-budget thing about a magazine owner's daughter and some smug photographer escaping aliens in northern Mexico. Both are entitled shits. Suggestions of other movies with entitled characters? Doesn't matter if they get what's coming to them.

"Eat, Pray, Love" - is that one?

"Devil Wears Prada"--the Anne Hathaway character was a pompous, entitled, unsympathetic little bitch who mocked the magazine she worked for and admitted she was just there for some starter experience.

That creepy film with Julianne Moore as a wealthy socialite fucking her fugly son, I can't remember the title.

The film was about the heirs to the Bakelite fortune. Wow, what a bunch of entitled freaks. All they did was travel, lol around on beaches, own homes all over the world, smoke, drink and have severe sexual dysfunctions.

I was also shocked that they became so wealthy through Bakelite!

The father started fucking the son's girlfriend, but the son was gay so he didn't care, he regarded the girl as a friend. Julianne's character went ballistic, she also spent the rest of the film trying to turn the son straight, which included finally fucking him.

Every character was completely loathsome and totally unappealing.

R74, IIRC, the gay son's boyfriend was cute, didn't Julianne's character try to fuck him too? Her character was completely demented.

I forgot who played the husband, that Stratharn (sp) guy?

I recall one scene where she was smoking joints with her son and his boyfriend in a bed. The guy who played the son was so unattractive. I think he was British doing an American accent.

The ending didn't shock me at all. It should have happened earlier in the film!

But the "liberal whose been mugged" reformed '60s radical is such an '80s cliche, r76, and it just doesn't ring true. It seems like one of those concepts that screenwriters and directors love because they live in a world of rich "guilty" liberals, but most rich people aren't liberals and don't feel an ounce of guilt about being rich. Movies like the Big Chill primarily illustrate how out of touch with reality Hollywood is with the real world.

The film helped make them a cliche.%0D %0D The film is about a group of people who come to the funeral of a dead school friend. The school friend committed suicide because he couldn't stand being around people like his friends anymore. The world had changed and the dead friend could no longer be a part of it. Sixties idealism was dead. The dead guy was a metaphor for idealism. The friends were the new reality of the 1980s -- yuppies.

The Big Chill was a ripoff of The Return of the Secaucus Seven, a much more realistic depiction of former Sixties college radicals. I don't think Kasdan really hung out with that crowd when he was at University of Michigan or he wouldn't have had them all watching football and listening to Motown.

Calling people "entitled" just because they are wealthy reeks of jealousy. Taking advantages of the privileges of wealth is what MOST people would do if they were wealthy.

Some wealthy people are assholes but being wealthy doesn't automatically make you an asshole or entitled.%0D %0D What's weird is that people here hate the poor, but they also think wealthy people are "entitled."

In short, some of you don't "get it."%0D %0D Again, the point, or, if you will, the conceit of "The Big Chill is that the characters are in on the joke of what they've become: shallow, entitled, upwardly mobile white folks ; the very contradiction of what they once believed they would be.%0D %0D That they end up that way, INCLUDING the dead, revered, Alex is the ironic joke of "The Big Chill."%0D %0D The screenplay practically shouts this throughout. But the most telling moment is when the character of Alex's girlfriend, Chloe, is answering questions from Nick while he is videotaping her. %0D %0D She says of Alex- "He thought that maybe he should have accepted that Rutledge Fellowship."%0D %0D And what is the "Rutledge Fellowship?" It was a position at a corporation which made armaments for the Vietnam War, which Alex had turned down.%0D %0D The camera stays on Chloe's face as she stares at Nick offscreen and then she says, "What's the matter, Nick.?"%0D %0D Well, the matter was that even Alex "sold-out."%0D %0D Those characters knew they were fallen idealists.

"Oh my business cards are so much better than what everyone else has. I absolutely must have the best business card."

"Look at my fancy apartment and how artfully empty it is it's perfect for me to look at myself as I run through a daily routine of perfecting myself."

"All this rich monotony is boring me, I absolutely must kill someone. How about this lowly commoner who dares not to bow in the presence of my greatness. Oh how I enjoy murdering people."

That pretty much sums up the film. I've heard the novel was better at explaining the main character's nuances, but in the film all I saw was a selfish, thoughtless, psychotic bastard.

As far as navel gazing unsympathetic characters, this movie was the ultimate. It was horrible all around. Thankfully I didn't pay to see it, a friend had some free passes. I would have demanded my money back.

"Cloverfield. SPOILER You will cheer when they die."

Another vote. When I saw it, people cheered for the monster.

"Life Without Zoe", Francis Ford Coppola's segment (co-written by entitled piece of shit Sofia)from "New York Stories". Zoe is a 10-year-old with an entire NY Plaza Hotel suite to herself (complete with manservant), as her parents spend 8 months a year jetting around the world being a famous photographer (mom) and "The Greatest Flute Player In The World" (dad). For 45 minutes we get to watch Zoe experiencing rich New York kid problems.

Don't know about the movie, but the book Bel-Ami. Well, maybe not entitled. But a piece of shit nonetheless.

So true about The Little Mermaid! Her only excuse is that she's a teenager.

Talented Mr Ripley is also about a guy who wants to become an entitled piece of shit and meets at least two of them (GOOP of course, and Jude Law)

Oh god, Rachel Getting Married was the most painful movie experience I have had in the last dozen years. What a piece of shit that was.

Any film that starts with a character who "has it all" immediately turns me off.

I think it's lazy writing. A way to avoid establishing a complex character.

"Ferris Beuller's Day Off", and pretty much any other teen movie from the 80s. "Breakfast Club", "Sixteen Candles", etc. But Ferris Beuller is the most arrogant, slappable piece of shit of any of them.

I never, ever, ever liked that movie, never found it interesting or fun or charming, couldn't wait for it to be over, never understood its appeal nor why it's such a cult classic. Home Alone at least is more entertaining. And could be added to this list.

Many years ago I read an analysis of Home Alone as being about an entitled shit (Culkin) and the two guys (Pesci and I forget the other guy's name) who try to question his entitlement via burgling the house.

Savage Grace, R72. That was the weirdest film ever, very uncomfortable. They did a good job of portraying that bunch of psychos (first off should be mentioned is the father, who disappears one day off to La Palma).

Don't know if there's a movie of that book, but characters in Tender Is the Night are about as fucked-up as those in Savage Grace (from the Bakelite fortune - here it's the socialites who hang in Fitzgerald's circle). You have to admire his honesty and the quality of the writing, but what. a bunch. of freaks.

The fugly son is played by Eddy Redmayne from Les Miserables with AnnE, and the cute boyfriend (with a beard making him look pudgier than he really is) is played by Hugh Dancy, who was the husband in Martha Marcy May Marlene, another movie possibly about entitled characters.

He was entitled bordering on Asperger's in 127 hours. Irony is that he doesn't really change outside of that he starts a family. Feel for the guy and the loss of his limb but all that happens to him he brought on himself.

I don't think he was just dumb, R112. It's implied he treated his ex-girlfriend like shit and that's why she left him.

That Darjeeling movie... Once the annoying intro was over (Nat Portman is stunning, but still, not enough) I knew that movie wasn't for me.

Who lies on a bed in a luxurious hotel in the center of Paris because they are having girlfriend problems?? AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAhhhh Just give to the poor you fucking assholes!

Haha, there is a French song about those who are entitled and those who are not. It's called "Je veux pleurer comme Soraya". Basically, princesses are allowed to cry on the cover of magazines when they get dumped, but if you're a factory worker, you're just out to work every day punching the clock and feeding yourself soup when you go home.

Arthur was unwatchable, In the Company of Men was despicable, Your Friends and Neighbors was a horrific piece of trash. Not even Nastassja Kinski could redeem the movie. Did she only work with shits?

Not true about Muriel's Wedding. The family's motionally fucked up, but they're certainly not entitled.

Also, Hesslop is alsmot an anagram for Hopeless. Always figured this wasn't innocent.

Water for Elephants, that crapfest of a movie. Sadly, the only interesting character was the "evil" guy played by Christoph Waltz. In the end the movie advocates going into retirement as late as possible, of all things.

The whole oeuvre of Sofia "entitled" Coppola. She even made a movie about that entitled Austrian who got her head chopped off by the French.

Gawd, so true, r167.

"Oh, woe is me! I'm staying at a luxury hotel in Tokyo! The alienation I feel!"

Such an utter piece of shit I don't know how it left the mark it did.

Mildred Pierce is about a single mother who raises an entitled coloratura snake.

"In fact, wasn't it the rich, non-working college kids who were able to spend time on protests and the like because they had the free time?"

I see you spent the '80s drinking the Reagan kool-aid, served with plenty of Peggy Noonan ice cubes. What is that old drunk up to now?

From this thread I am learning that horror movies where entitled pieces of shit die at the end is a genre in itself.

It's not really horror then, is it?

"Mommie Dearest." My daughter was VERY entitled. And she never earned it!

"Greenberg" takes it. I was so angry after that movie I was filled with adrenaline. Ooh, Stiller cuts his own hair! He must be mentally ill, then. Poor thing has to decamp to his filthy rich brother's house to feel bad about himself and his mediocre band! Ben Stiller was never more hateful, more hateful than I think the filmmakers intended. To me, Greenberg is more disturbing than Freddie Krueger. Is it possible we as an audience are supposed to want to choke him to death and nothing more? His well-cushioned narcisssism was disgusting. The idea that woman would ever be attracted to him, no matter how self-hating, suspended all rationale. Stiller is not talented enough an actor to provide any sympathy for this rich wretch. Couldn't he have been mowed down by a garbage truck at the end?
