My HUGE 'Ghost' Problem
We've all seen the movie. We've all recited lines ("It's Autumn Sunrise") or maybe even re-enacted scenes from this movie. Heck, we might have even cried during this very touching flick. There is absolutely no sarcasm here. Ghost is a great movie that has a place in each of its viewers hearts. But there is one part of the movie the baffled me then and still baffles me now.
If you haven't seen it. Stop reading and watch RUBBER JOHNNY.
So here's my beef. At the end of the movie, right before the final showdown with the sleazy guy. Whoopi allows Swayze to "enter" her body (sounds classy) so he can interact with Demi for maybe one last time. So he goes into Oda Mae Brown and we (the viewers) no longer see Whoopi, we see Swayze. And then the Dirty Dancer and Demi get it on. Beautiful moment. Emotions rise and frankly, it's absolutely special.
But here's the thing, does nobody realize that even though his spirit is inside of Whoopi, she's still Whoopi? So basically Whoopi and Demi go at it (in very sexual ways). Where is all the lesbian backlash or even the "dude, Demi and Whoopi just kissed" talk. Do people just leave all reality at the door? Or do people realize this and I'm just on the outside?
To recap: Patrick Swayze's spirit is in Whoopi, but Whoopi is still Whoopi and her and Demi do some dirty dirty things. If people are cool with that, then fine by me. I don't want to stir the pot or anything like that. I just really want to know if that bothers anyone else.
