    Unhappy BALD references in MOVIES

    I decided to start this topic after what i had viewed this past weekend.

    My family and I had rented "We bought a Zoo" on Saturday night. (actually a good movie)
    Watch this segmented video and pay close attention to what was said at 22 seconds in.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ybit...eature=related

    Im not sure why the director/writer/producers thought that this line would be so warmly accepted and cute by the masses.

    A cute little daughter expressing her happiness to her father that he ISN'T BALD!

    My view on this is very biased of course. What does everyone think? What other movies have done the same??

    I agree Highlander,, In that movie after 'Rosie' had said what she said to her 'father', MY sweet 12 year old daughter said some very nice words of reassurance to me.

    Yes, this is really sad BUT Matt Damon is losing his hair. Anyway, you have a family so why do you care about hairloss? Once I have my own family that loves me for me and not cause the way I look or any other BS then ill stop using fin and rogaine.

    This kind of thing always pisses me off. I absolutely despise it when I see people making stupid jokes about baldness/hair loss in popular culture. Certain things are taboo; things that are off limits to poke fun at, like race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, etc. Hell, there are plenty of people who have been raked over the coals and fired for making fun of a person's race or sexual orientation, yet it's totally acceptable, and even encouraged, to make fun of baldness/hair loss. It seems like a lot of people laugh at that Larry David piece of crap and that pudgy little turd nuggett George Costanza, yet I cannot stand them because they make it acceptable to poke fun at a disease (hair loss) which affects all of our lives so greatly. In my opinion, it is just as disgusting and unacceptable to make fun of some one's hair loss as it is to make fun of their race/ethnicity.

    I was going to ask a question that fits nicely here. Does anyone know any movies or songs about men suffering from baldness. Given the effect it has on people, I'm surprised there aren't any.
