19 Movies That Were Completely Normal When They Premiered But Would Cause A Global Incident In 2022



These movies hit different in 2022 than they did when they were first released.

I think it’s safe to say that our culture has shifted toward being more socially conscious (which isn’t a bad thing).

Have you tried rewatching an old favorite recently and realized it doesn’t quite hit the same with 2022 eyes?

There’s a surprising amount of good, well-loved films that wouldn’t stand a chance if they were released today. And it isn’t just about aging badly, it’s all the different things that have played into our shifting perspectives.

Not all of these films would be big losses, but none of them would make it with today’s sensibilities.


To start, try explaining to anyone who didn’t live it that Robert Downey Jr. was nominated for an Academy Award for Tropic Thunder.

RDJ’s character is supposed to be a mockery of the entitlement of white actors, but some feel he should apologize for the role because of the use of blackface. Fans of the film have justified that he’s playing an actor who would do blackface and that it doesn’t reflect his personal beliefs.


Heathers was a dark high school comedy in its heyday, but today it would be seen as a dark depiction of what bullying can lead to.

The attitudes about high school violence and suicide in Heathers would lead to straight-up outrage if attempted in today’s day and age.


Waiting would cause outrage and probably lead to a follow-up hospitality exposé or two.

The ick factor was too much for some people the first time around. Imagine now?


The Squints and Wendy Peffercorn scene from The Sandlot would not be seen as cutesy and romantic today.

And neither would all the misogyny.


Just about every attitude in Bridget Jones’s Diary would get dragged today.

There’s so much misogyny, problematic talk of weight, not to mention the straight up-harassment. 


Office Space would, at minimum, be seen as a much darker film.

A lot of people probably wouldn’t appreciate Peter’s constant complaints about life and work, considering he’s a middle-class white guy with a desk job. And Milton might be considered a tinge violent.


Everything prior to the last ten minutes of I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry is high-key offensive to the LGBTQ+ community.

The whole premise of Shallow Hal is the exact opposite of body positive.

Gwyneth Paltrow would be dragged by 2022 culture for even auditioning for this role. 


Same for Revenge of the Nerds, which was slammed for racism and misogyny when it first came out.

That’s not to mention we have totally different attitudes about fraternities and hazing today.


A drunk high school prom queen being passed by her boyfriend to another guy, with the promise she wouldn’t remember? That was, in part, Sixteen Candles, and it totally wouldn’t happen today.

We’ve developed a different attitude about planes since Airplane! first came out.

That’s not to mention the numerous one-liners that would have modern viewers incensed. 


Pootie Tang was satire but would still be seen as way too much today, and that’s without considering Louis C.K.’s involvement.

Reese Witherspoon and Husband Jim Toth Divorcing After 12 Years of Marriage



After 12 years of marriage, Reese Witherspoon and Jim Toth are going their separate ways.

The former couple announced their split in a joint statement shared to social media on Friday, March 24, two days before their wedding anniversary. 

“We have some personal news to share… It is with a great deal of care and consideration that we have made the difficult decision to divorce,” the statement read. “We have enjoyed so many wonderful years together and are moving forward with deep love, kindness, and mutual respect for everything we have created together. Our biggest priority is our son and our entire family as we navigate this next chapter. These matters are never easy and are extremely personal. We truly appreciate everyone’s respect for our family’s privacy at this time.”

What’s more, a source tells ET, “Reese and Jim’s decision to get a divorce was really just an amicable and thoughtful choice on both parts. They made the decision together and there is nothing dramatic about it. It is all love and they are committed to looking out for their son and whole family together.”

The couple was married on March 26, 2011 at the 47-year-old actress’ ranch in Ojai, California. A little over a year later, Witherspoon and Toth welcomed their first child together, Tennessee. Witherspoon is also mom to Ava and Deacon Phillippe from her previous marriage to actor Ryan Phillippe.

In 2012, Witherspoon shared with ELLE how she first met the the 52-year-old talent scout at a house party when he rescued her from a “really drunk guy.”

“Jim came over and said, ‘Please excuse my friend. He’s just broken up with someone,'” the 46-year-old actress recalled. “Jim was a really good friend, pulling him out of that situation. That’s just kind of who he is, a really good person.”

The two were engaged by December 2010, just 10 months after publicly confirming their relationship.

Over the past few years, Witherspoon and Toth have rarely been seen out together. One of their last appearances was at Vanity Fair‘s Oscars after-party in February 2020. 

And one of the last times Witherspoon posted about Toth was on Dec. 21, 2022. She also posted a photo of herself, Toth and Tennessee on Jan. 1, 2023.

24 Toys And Games Reviewers Say They’re Glad They Bought



To play, pass out all of the cards to players and have everyone keep their pile face down. Everyone takes turns putting a card in the middle while saying “taco,” “cat,” “goat,” “cheese,” and “pizza,” in that order. If the picture on the card that’s placed down matched the word that’s been said, everyone races to slap the center pile of cards and whoever slaps the pile last has to add the center pile to their personal pile. Oh! And there’s also “narwhal” where everyone makes a unicorn horn with their hands clapped together above their heads, “gorilla” where everyone bangs on their chest like a gorilla and “groundhog” where everyone has to knock on the table. Whoever does the motion last picks up the center pile. Whoever runs out of cards first wins! You can play with three to eight players and the *recommended* age is 8 and up.

Promising review: “I just finished playing a round of this with my 6-year-old son and 8-year-old daughter and it was so much fun. There was squealing and laughter galore. Simple to learn and fun to play. We can’t wait til dad is home from work to play with him. Fast paced and action filled, this is not a game where you can sit and casually chat while you play, which sometimes can be a blessing in disguise depending on the company! We love this game, and I’m so glad we bought it. I bought it on either black Friday or cyber Monday, but would buy again even if I had to pay full price!” —AC33
