Conservative Moviegoers Torn Over The Expendables

Obviously, a lot of people wanted to see The Expendables this past weekend. It wouldn't have made an impressive $35 million otherwise. But it appears that not all of the country is pleased with Sylvester Stallone's movie, as some conservative bloggers are debating what the film has to say about America. Some think it's the most patriotic film since the days of John Wayne, while others see it as being awfully anti-American. We were actually too distracted by Stallone's goatee to give the film's political ideology much thought. [Big Picture/LAT]
