Innapropriate Scenes


The movie had some very innapropriate scenes. The scene where Mr. Grant was showing the young lady how to catch a fish was just one of many sexually explicit scenes. I was watching the film with my grand son and I had to cover his eyes when Mr. Grant grabbed the woman from behind and began being very sexually suggestive with her. She was very free with herself which also added to the sexual intensity of the film. It nearly gave me a heart attack and I am quite a bit older than my grand son. My friends all told me this was a fine film to watch but I disagree very much. What are your thoughts?

reply

There's nothing sexual about catching fish. Even the reference to the fish's gender ("How do you know it's a 'she?'") was not sexual. It's just your imagination.

reply

Are you one of these degenerate beatniks or sex crazed folkies? The young people of today are too busy doing their perverse dances and screaming at rock and or roll concerts to go to church. They need to remain pure and devoted to the Lord. This movie is just the type of thing that influences our young people and makes them act poorly.

reply

Yes, I'm both of those things. Could you please be more explicit and graphic about what you think was sexual about this scene?

reply

He was holding her very close and directing her very slowly. I do not like your insubordinate attitude.

reply

So, two adults realized they had a physical attraction, which led to marriage. We mere mortals play the game this way sometimes. Father Goose is a very moral film, for those who do not have a holier-than-thou God-complex. Sex was clearly not on Cathy's nor Walter's mind, until nature took its course; Walter was then a gentleman and did not try to take advantage of the situation. No prepubescent child could possibly see sex in this scene, unless the idea is planted in his mind by a supervising adult. Groping her was on your mind, not mine nor Walter's. He was teaching her to fish, nothing more.

reply

Why I never. I am on my husbands account. I am a lady and you are to address me as such. I read the Bible every Sunday and pray every night. These movies today need to be censored. These movies are deplorable. Father Goose is despicable.

reply

Uh, yeah. I'm thinking that "TravisBickle88" is a dyed-in-the-wool Internet troll.

And a fairly transparent one at that. Nice try though.

Why don't you head over to "The Waltons" message board and try out your act over there?



For England, for home, and for the prize!

reply

Hah, settle down buckeroo. I wasn't trying to fool anyone. I was hoping people would see it was an act and for some reason got all hot and bothered and post something stupid in anger. Heh. Finally someone dumb read my post!

reply

You weren't trying to fool anyone? But it was an act. So yeah, you were trying to fool everyone. And I'm dumb for seeing through your act?

If I had a nickle for every a--hole like you on the Internet, I'd be a rich man before noon.

Boy you sure do know a lot about me. Actually you don't know sh-t about me.

You're the one who started a thread on a message board, using a 'morally outraged' act, for the sole purpose of provoking a reaction. That's called trolling.

Then you tried to play it off as just fooling around.

Don't feel bad because somebody called you out on it.

Good day to yourself as well jackoff.

Yes, in 'Net parlance, a "troll" is someone who gets off on saying inflammatory things and sitting back to watch the flame-works.

Anyone who purposely posts "a lot of controversial things" for the fun of the reactions, is a troll. I sense, you are a troll. Back under your bridge.

I have a nickle for each IMDb troll and now I'm a multi-millionaire!

There an awful lot of dead-from-the-neck-up people on IMDb trying to impose their off the wall ideals and morals upon you and everybody else. The really senior trolls will accuse you of "ad hominem attacks" for expressing an opinion with an opposing view, or if you support feeedom of thought and expression. These insufferably arrogant IMDb zygotes confirm any idiot with access to a computer can insult your intelligence.

Only a few trolls can kill a decent board if the posters let them. Since, by the looks of it, the mods here never get involved, I hope the "IGNORE THIS USER" button never goes away!

reply

You're a pretty lame excuse for a troll, Snookums.

reply

He was just directing here on how to catch a fish. There was nothing sexual in the way he did it. I'm a Catholic and I didn't find it offensive or obscene in any way.

reply

Perhaps what the lady may be thinking of, is that Carey Grant gets such a sudden look of discomfort on his face that one might imply he began having a hard-on, and before it began to poke her, he just leapt into the water and swam away. I rather thought that myself and it was why I laughed at the scene.

Also, when they are slapping each other near the end, he gets this look like, I'm gonna either slap her silly or jump her! Guess I'd better marry her first!

I didn't think they were compatible AT ALL, but for the time, I guess it was the gentlemanly thing for him to do.

As for the interpretation of the 'looks', it would take a mature person, probably with either a good bit of sexual experience, or at least a rather lurid turn of mind, to see into it what I've suggested. For a child, I think the movie is quite safe and perhaps a little bland!

reply

I disagree. There is obviously some very strong sexual tension in the scene. Catherine's aroused and hurt manner in which she wants Walter to continue to show her more about catching fish is not simply her desire for more education. And Walter's slow swim-off also shows his arousal. In 1964, this was pretty racy.

reply

TravisBickle88, people write posts meant to be read to incite discussion (if one is fortunate, an intelligent one)

In the future, it would be appreciated if you would abstain from posting unless you *honestly* have something substantial to discuss rather than trying to "fool" someone out of mere boredom (or whatever your reason was.)

reply

I agree. TravisBickle88 is a jerk

reply

I agree with handoverfist you are a jerk and a small arrogant idiot who's only form of human contact is to wind people up who actually have a valid and sensible point of view. You schmuck!!!

reply

Huh?

*EDIT*
Well, I just saw the movie again a couple weeks back, and I think what you're referring to is kind of the whole thrust of the film. It's about a man who hasn't had any companionship, let alone a woman, for years. You actually kind of have to be a male to get where Cary Grant's character is coming from. The scene you describe is actually meant to be sexually provocative. But, I think it would fly over most kids' heads.

reply

I think you're trolling, that's what I think. Get a better hobby.

In no way could this be seen as "sexually explicit"
