ok, but thats my point. isnt an elitist image supposed to be more "liked" in the states?
maybe by elitists... but for most people it's a major turn-off
look at Caddyshack, Pretty in Pink, Animal House, Slumdog Millionaire (not a US movie but won Best Picture here), The Grapes of Fuckin Wrath, Breaking Away, The Notebook
, It's a Wonderful Life
rich people = mean, stuckup, weak, immoral, boring
poor/working class people = noble, brave, strong, heroic, fun
