Default Re: The Twins: Racist?

I strongly disagree with some of the viewpoints here. There were both subtle and overt racist characterizations for the twins (gold teeth, gorillalooking faces, "we don't read much", combining into an ice cream truck). Notwithstanding, the depiction and inclusion of the twins were a microcosm of a number of the film's deficencies. One of the worst films EVER MADE.
