For those who have, is it just me, or is there a little something unusual about the two rhinocerus in the movie? My wife and I agree that their behavior is a little too "friendly" for being a couple of male rhinos. I'm only bringing this up because my eight year old noticed this. Anybody?

My girlfriend and I had the same feeling about them.

i enjoyed the movie, a cute bit of lightweight fluff. it's just a cartoon about trust and courage and teamwork. it didnt occur to me to look for gay rhinos.

Recently took the GF, and we both expected it to be funny. Something was missing, the funny stuff. Sure there was some, but I find better humor in a Simpons episode than this. Then there were zero sponsers, like McDonalds, who would promote the movie on food items. Almost like the corps didn't like it either. The Rino thing I missed, but now when I think back to the mud jacuzzi...

You're absolutely right, Chaingun. The movie wasn't all that funny. The only character and scenes my wife and I enjoyed were the bits with the neurotic squirrel that kept trying to bury his acorn. As far as looking for gay rhinos is concerned, it didn't occur to me to look for anything of this nature either. My son brought it up this morning, a full four days [i]after[/i] we saw the movie. Something (an image perhaps?) was planted in his subconscious and allowed to fester enough to raise a natural curiosity. Humans have the innate ability to do this. What separates us from mindless sheep or cows is the ability to reason and think. I don't need some movie company executive dictating what he/she/it feels is appropriate subject matter to expose children to. [b]Especially my child.[/b] In my household, homosexuality is not considered an acceptable, alternative lifestyle, and I do not appreciate any individual imposing their beliefs on me or mine.

Big Bear, We saw it Sunday also. Neither my wife nor I noticed anything either. Before school this morning my son asked if all boy rhinos like each other the way the two in the movie did. My son has a strong natural inclination to find girls cute and desirable over boys. There's a girl in his class who has a crush on him and his actions prove that it's reciprocal. When he was five he was fascinated by Mariah Carey. Why did he ask a question of the nature that he did if not inspired by some image he was exposed to? There was no blatant "Look at me, I'm gay and you must accept me" message in the movie that I noticed. I do, however, believe that it's possible to hoodwink the masses into accepting a mindset if it is presented in a subtle and palatable form so as not to upset everyone. Cigarette companies have done it for years.

I heard that the meerkat and warthog in The Lion King are queer.

I think I will go see it... ...to catch the Episode II trailer.
