The humor was lost

Someone in Hollywood thought it would be funny for the new spoof
Date Movie to depict a young couple on a romantic date exhibiting their impulsive wackiness by beating and robbing a homeless man.

But in a region where four homeless men have been beaten this year -- one fatally -- the scene sparked homeless citizens and advocates in Broward County to picket the movie.

Read the Miami Herald story here and the Sun-Sentinel story here.

And see previous post about the fatal beating here.
