I guess it’s probably awesome, in a “the therapist said this was healthy” kind of way, for so many screenwriter-type guys to be able to pour out all their perverse fantasies onscreen and get paid so very well for it. I can only imagine that they didn’t do all this stuff when they were younger and are worried they missed out on something cool. Or maybe they did do it all but now can’t remember. Or maybe they did do it all and want to relive it.
Whatever the case, it’s sad — and kinda hard to believe — that these movies are written by adults. Except for the “getting paid so very well” part. I guess.
