She Hate Me
Source: Catholic News Service
Disjointed and didactic drama about a Harvard-educated vice president (Anthony Mackie) of a large pharmaceutical company on the verge of unveiling an AIDS vaccine who, after being fired and having his bank accounts frozen for blowing the whistle on his corporate higher-ups for Enron-like financial malfeasance, is persuaded by his entrepreneurial, lesbian ex-fiancee (Kerry Washington) to impregnate her and other maternally desperate lesbians at $10,000 a head. Working off a discursive script, director Spike Lee never really decides which story he wants to tell, cramming his potluck plot with a logjam of hot-button topics -- including white-collar crime, corporate greed, sexual politics, Watergate and racism -- while suggesting a radically unconventional redefining of family and sexual identity. Several explicit sexual encounters with nudity, same-sex kissing, a graphic suicide, strong sexual language and humor, as well as racial and ethnic stereotypes. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is O -- morally offensive. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is R -- restricted.
