I wonder what Andrew Dice Clay thought about last night's MTV Movie Awards. Do you think Peter Facinelli will be similarly banned for life for going crazy with the F-word? Yeah, right. He is a member of the Twilight clan, after all, which means he's got immunity regarding anything he does for MTV. But did he go too far? How about Mark Wahlberg? Or host Aziz Ansari? Considering the show was already filled with intentional cursing (including and beginning with Tom Cruise's foul-mouthed producer character, Les Grossman), all of which was meant to be censored for TV viewers, and since some of them were barely audible over all the screaming, does it really matter that a lot of words slipped through un-bleeped?

Overall, the show was rather blue for an event aimed at young viewers who love such family friendly film series as Twilight and Harry Potter. Both at home and in the Gibson Amphitheatre, the audience was clearly made up of teens and preteens. And yet Christina Aguilera's glowing-heart crotch close-up and Sandra Bullock and Scarlett Johansson's "lesbian" kiss were two of the more appropriate moments. Even some of the technically permissible stuff, such as Ansari's joke about Jacob's testicles being in Edward's face while the latter was proposing to Bella in New Moon, were questionable. Cutting to 11-year old Jaden Smith cracking up in the audience immediately afterward only reminded us of how many kids were hearing this racy material.
