Yep, simplistic and nonsensical enough to inspire a real-life revolution in Scotland.

Not a comment on the movie, but you care to check, you will find that the film is only very loosely based on an incident. Very little, including all of the ending has any substitutive basis.

Updated with Crash, which overtakes Chicago as the weakest Best Picture in my view.

In going over my list so far, I'd say that the most undeserving "Best Picture" IMO would be AMADEUS, followed closely by GENTLEMAN'S AGREEMENT and AMERICAN BEAUTY.

I didn't think much of MILLION DOLLAR BABY, and although ALL ABOUT EVE was a good film, I much preferred SUNSET BLVD. from the same year.
