    Best/Classic Movies That Would Never Get Made Today

    Name 'em.

    Top of the list for me: Ace Ventura: Pet Detective. If that were even pitched today, it would be dragged to death as the most toxic, trasphobic, etc. attempt at film-making in history.

    It may be easier to identify what films the current cultural gatekeepers would allow in today's clown world.

    Not a movie, but no way The Office could have been the same.

    Mrs. Doubtfire would probably get you hauled in front of a human rights tribunal in my country.

    What was so racy about Ace Ventura?

    The Goonies, all the Asian stereotyping and fat shaming of Chunk would be so watered down now.

    Seriously. I actually never watched it when it was on tv because I hate Steve Carell. I have recently gotten into it and have been binging on it on netflix. There is no way that show would work in today's pussified world.

    Kind of strange, because I've never cared for Steve Carell in anything else. But the man was born to play Michael Scott. I've been through The Office seasons multiple times. Never gets old.
