There's a lot of aspects to this news story. First is the legal aspect. These accusations have been around for a long time, one victim did press charges against Cosby and they settled out of court and as far as I know no one else has pressed charges. Cosby is 77 and clearly has lost some of hus functionality. When I saw him on the Colbert Report he was clearly slurring words and speaking extremely slowly (much more so than his usual).
It doesn't seem there will be any physical evidence of any of this happeniing as none of it is recent. I'd really be surprised if anything legal comes out of this. If Cosby is guilty and he feels guilt, he won't admit it because admitted guilt means you have to be punished. Doubt he wants to go to prison or give his wealth to these women instead of his family.
Another aspect is the social and media aspect. Assuming he's never found guilty I doubt there will be any longterm ramifications. Michael Jackson's music is still played and celebrated despite numerous allegations against him. So I assume The Cosby Show will keep airing and aside from some missed interviews (Cosby's Letterman apperance was cancelled) there shouldn't be too much in terms of consequences for his media career legacy.
The last aspect is the cultural aspect. Cosby has long suggested people from his community have a professional appearance, speak well, get an education and be productive members of society. You're going to see the hip hop, rap culture love this story. No doubt it'll be used to defend the drug, welfare, single mom , disdain for education lifestyle. This is perhaps the worst aspect of it. Cosby was perhaps the best entertainment role model for the black community and now he's been accused of being a serial rapist.
Ultimately there's no proof he's guilty unless something comes out in the future. People can jump to conclusions about his agreed settlement or they can jump to other conclusions about the women not pressing charges . Only Cosby and the women know the truth.
I'd say women should not go see adult men alone at their homes or apartments for work purposes. Establish boundaries in life. There are plenty of sick people out there.
Funny event all around. Putin offered a shawl to the Chinese PM's wife and she discarded it and apparently the Chinese government is trying to delete all footage of the occurrence on their state-sponosored media sites that compete with youtube.
Ridiculous those poor folks can't burn wood though. Sad times in China.
I was able to see this film early at a movie screening via Gofobo. The movie is absolutely hilarious and reaffirms that Jim Carrey is a genius.He does great physical comedy and just when you think 'this is stupid' Carrey will do something so absurd to push you to a laughter you were holding back.
Really I think it was funnier than the first film as I thought the first film had too much plot and not enough comedy. Of course this film doesn't have the novelty of the first but the jokes are spot on.
Also it seems Jim Carrey hasn't had a decent movie in years so it also felt like seeing someone you've been missing.
The film does a good job of referencing the first. There are the random fantasies throughout the film and they bring back the gay joke.
Carrey was also hilarious on SNL recently doing an impersonation of Matthew McConaughey's Lincoln commercials. Hopefully he's back to stay. So tired of the raunchy drug and sex comedies that dominate today.
