constant is using "bemused" in the #3 way. it's precisely the word to describe Bruce Willis' acting style.

Oct 1, 2009 concerned woman commented on News Flash: I Didn't Like Hooters.
Lindy, I am glad that you are outspoken about the unbearable smugness and sexism of Hooters, and I am totally with you on the analogy it bears to racism. What is even more infuriating is that calling the franchise (and its patrons) out on this is considered being "shrill" or "uptight" by the readers. Why can't women just "relax"? Why can't those black people just "relax"? Any sort of semi-intelligent, articulate and (though this might be the Achilles' heel I am still glad of it) emotionally forthright pronunciation against such blatant exploitation is dismissed by the masses (that's US, people) as snobbish or elitist. Where are we going? There is a reason to take this shit seriously. I recently taught college freshmen (at an Ivy League School, no less) and was astonished to see the amount of internalized sexism they exhibited. There has been a serious regression in the struggle for women's equality, coupled with a cultural retardation of which Hooters is not a reason but an example-- one that makes a nice profit for its perpetrators. It truly makes me wait in dreaded anticipation for a future like the one depicted in Idiocracy.
