Post subject:  Starship Troopers named most Subversive Comedy

Some kind of movie review site called Scene Stealers has published their list of the top ten most subversive comedies:

http://www.scene-stealers.com/top-10/to ... -comedies/

and ST leads the list (!).

Quote:
It also deserves the top spot here because the movie purposely does something that few films actually do on purpose: It subverts the entire message of the Robert Heinlein sci-fi novel on which it’s based. Ouch.


And why is it listed as a comedy?

Quote:
...you get to see Neil Patrick Harris mature into Joseph Mengele. How is that not funny?


Got a point there.
