In praise of 'Thunderstruck'

Rosemary Stafford September 19th, 2012

I wonder if the 15-year-old kid who wrote “Fouled Out” (Film, Harrison Lott, Aug. 29, Oklahoma Gazette) represents most teenagers. It is sad that he couldn’t enjoy a lighthearted movie. Thunderstruck is tops, in my opinion. I sure do hope Kevin Durant doesn’t take to heart what was written.

Thunderstruck was a nice and refreshing film. We don’t have enough movies that are clean. I have three grown boys and have seen lots of fast-paced, actionpacked movies and have enjoyed them.

Most movies include foul language, drugs, violent crime and sex. This one is funny and wholesome.

The kid’s comment in the review about the coach didn’t make sense. Of course the coaching in a comedy isn’t going to be like a real-life coach. The coaches were silly and that’s why the movie was funny.

I enjoyed seeing Kevin Durant’s moth er in the movie. I hope to see both of them in other movies. Durant was great. When I watched the movie, the theater was packed. Throughout the movie, lots of people cheered and clapped for him. I recommend Thunderstruck for all ages who can enjoy all types of movies, and not only PG-13 and R-rated ones.
