Hollywood's Short Term Memory

Hollywood has a short term memory.

Has anyone else noticed this?

Vanessa Williams was once Miss America, until she lost her crown due to some Penthouse pictures of a little girl on girl action. Not too long after she starred opposite Elmo in The Adventures Of Elmo in Grouchland, and more recently she stars in the hit TV show Ugly Betty. Hmmmm.

Anne Heche had an unexpected relationship with Ellen DeGeneres. Then all the sudden she was straight again, knocking on the door of a complete stranger's house saying she had been abducted by aliens. Now she's evidently not crazy, married to a man and starring in the TV show Men In Trees. Say wha?

Joel Schumacher single-handedly killed the Batman franchise with the piece of cinematic turd that is Batman and Robin, yet he continues to make films to this day. Wha tha?

John Travolta who is a trekologist decides to pay homage to the head trekologist L. Ron Hubbard by making a really bad science fiction movie written by Hubbard titled Battlefield Earth. It was crap but yet people in Hollywood still seem to think Travolta is a serious actor. Come again?

The plot for the Pixar movie Cars (2006) is almost a literal rip-off of the Michael J. Fox movie Doc Hollywood (1991). Yet people cheered "Pixar has done it again" and the movie is sure to pull an Oscar in the animation category. Son of a...

I would buy that Hollywood has a heart and believes in giving people second and third chances if it were anyone but Hollywood. The truth of the matter is, it's all about the bank and as long as he/she can make money it doesn't matter what they've done in past lives.

I'm sure one day very soon, Mad Max will do another Lethal Weapon movie where he will save the day and all will be forgiven and forgotten.
