Loud Mouths: Rude Remarks in "Man of the Year", "Borat" and "Shut Up & Sing"
Beck, Bernard
Multicultural Perspectives, v9 n3 p29-32 Jul 2007
Two of the subcultures involved in an intranational struggle are those who take politics and the civic arrangements seriously on the one hand and those who scorn and revile the political process on the other. Although people do not usually think of politics as a minority subculture, it is clear that it belongs to a category of organized activities that are considered fair game for brutal humor, condescending ridicule and outright hatred. In this article, the author discusses how movies such as "Man of the Year", "Borat", and "Shut Up & Sing" parody the national political culture.
