    If you can buy a bud on a plane it should be ok to have it on an airplane in a movie, I’m just sayin.

    I wanted out of Flight 30 minutes into it.   Cliched and overwrought.

    Ha,ha Budweiser and  Stolichnaya  doesn’t want a negative image? As if their clientele hasn’t already done that ?

    Should have been Colt .45 Malt Liquor. The brutha’s drink of choice.

    I always drink Bud when I don’t really feel like drinking.

    This is reasonable. Budweiser and Stolichnaya have taken extensive steps over the years to ensure that their products do not contribute to any negative aspects of society. They have made it very clear that you should only enjoy their products as a normal, positive part of hanging out with chicks with massive tits and high-fiving your buddies about sports.

    This is the exactly same reason “Alpo” wanted to be taken out of “Air Bud”.

    Is this the movie about when My Name is Earl’s fat brother left the gas pedal stuck down on an airplane?  Oh Dewey, will you ever win?
