I think this is often true, and yet there are some trends that persist over generations. I don't know any good way to distinguish between shifts in perspective and a true change.


a completely absurd romance plot between Willis's character and a woman young enough to be his granddaughter

Do you mean Mary Louise Parker? She is only nine years younger than Bruce Willis.


Wow, she's well-preserved. I pegged her as being in her mid-twenties, not mid-forties.

Well, it cuts down on the "ew" factor, but as depicted the romance is still absurd.
