Okay, my tongue was pretty far in my cheek when I wrote that. You and I are
both presenting accurate portrayals of the content of the book, and I did

That said, my wife showed the movie to her classes on "American Values" at

significantly more positive then the women. It apparently speaks to a very
masculine sense of alienation.
She had them watch the movie after reading Horatio Alger.
