Hollywood continues to auger into the ground. SPOILER alert, if anyone cares.

Well, it seems the latest Jody Foster film is following the hate America template along with the rest of the totally awesome films we all didn't see this year.  Courtesy Drudge today.  Who's pissed this time is the flight attendants.

Labor unions representing most of the nation's 90,000 flight attendants have urged their members to boycott a new Jodie Foster film that portrays a flight attendant and a U.S. air marshal as terrorists.

They said that casting cabin crew members as villains in the movie "Flightplan" was irresponsible in light of heightened security concerns since the September 11, 2001 attacks, in which suicide hijackers used airliners as guided missiles.

The Walt Disney Co. film, which was the No. 1 release at the North American box office last weekend, stars Foster as an airline passenger who awakens from an in-flight nap to find her young daughter missing. It turns out that one of the flight attendants aboard is involved in a terrorist plot hatched by the plane's air marshal.

Gee, isn't that what you sooo want to see in the post 9/11 world?  Officials of the US government are terrorists!  It will be a wonder if this trash breaks even.  It did $25 mill opening weekend, that doesn't bode well for it once the word gets out.

It remains to be seen whether or not Hollywierd will get a friggin' clue before they go bankrupt.  My money is on bankruptcy, I don't think they are very bright.
