generic doctorAfter examining the 87 films in the IMDB's top 2000 made after 1983 (meaning in the age of AIDS), a team of doctors is royally pissed off at Hollywood. According to their study, only one of the 53 "episodes of sex" in the films even contained a mention of birth control - and yet, miraculously, no one ended up pregnant or with an STD. (Basic Instinct? Six "episodes!" No pregnancy! No herpes! No crabs! Man. How much fun would it be to live in the movies?) Additionally, the movies were filled with smokers and drinkers, while weed and harder drugs made periodic appearances, all without negative consequences. Instead, the doctors report, most uses of drugs and alcohol had positive results for the characters who indulged.

Needless to say, the panel of docs would be much happier if Hollywood would make an effort to model good, healthy behavior. Totally not going to happen, but you can't blame them for trying.
