In the big picture,yes.All the movies I've given the same grade,I liked or disliked them equally.But it's not like when I was watching THE GODFATHER I was thinking of this movie...or any other.I was just watching THE GODFATHER.

Yeah, but you gave it the same grade as "The Godfather". Again, generous much?

I don' really get why this movie is considered bad.While I haven't seen all of the Child Abuse Month movies,I've seen a bunch of movies with similar premises.And this one isn't like them:
1)Not once in this movie someone gets hit in the nuts,and there's no toilet humour.
2)Dwayne Johnson actually gives a good performance.And according to most critics,I'm not alone in that.
3)While this is predictable(how could it not be?),there's genuine drama.
4)Granted,the little girl might seem annoying for some because she talks like a 40-year-old.But you can't deny she's funny...because she talks like a 40-year-old!

No. There is no such thing as G rated movie that adults will like. Because G rated is just another word for "only kids under the age of 10 will find this entertaining".

I saw this movie and it was actually really cute, and not bad. I think The Rock may be regaining his sanity...just not very quickly.

Top movie at the Box Office this weekend. Well, here's one reason for that: I guess there's some people that are just desperate to go to any family-friendly movie...

I guess that sort of makes kumquats the Prince Phillip of fruits, doesn't it?

Are we talking about schadenfreude?  Friedrich Neitzsche apparently once commented that humor is schadenfreude with a clear conscience.  I'm not so sure I'd go that far.  For example, I laugh at kumquats.  They're small, the variety we see in stores are oval, they have peels like a tangerine, they have as many seeds as some oranges and the ones we buy in the stores are very sour.  All of that being together in one itty bitty fruit strikes me as funny.  It's not that the kumquat is suffering, but I've never come across as useless of a fruit as a kumquat.

Now, the fact that we still go ahead and use them may invoke schadenfreude. . . .

Wow, I've talked about schadenfreude, Nietzsche and kumquats in the Razzie forum.  I bet that's a first. . . .

That said, I think you and wetbandit are right.  Whether you're dealing with the pathos of Chaplin's tramp, the vaudevillian screwball  of the Marx Brothers or the absurdity of Monty Python, it's by and large schadenfreude.  I'm not sure where "Spam" fits in, though, and I'm not sure I want to find out. . . .

Chaplin, Keaton and Lloyd understood something about comedy that none of the modern film comics even vaguely comprehend. We loved the tramp and all the characters portrayed by Keaton and Lloyd because when we saw them on the screen, we were watching ourselves;  not some pathetic loser we would rather beat up than laugh at. Further, they understood that real comedy always treds just this side of tragedy. It isn't about bodily functions or four letter words. It's about things we all see, experience and recognize.
