The Bad Seed in General Discussions Posted Wednesday at 03:57 PM 28 minutes ago, txfilmfan said: Yes, I was being tongue-in-cheek. Sorry, I always hate it when people take something I say ironically, or "tongue-in-cheek", or whatever you want to call it (in this case, maybe sardonic understatement) and go all poe-faced and reprimand me. Guess I haven't had enough coffee yet today. Also, full disclosure, and this is "just me"...I know The Bad Seed is a good film, and I've seen it a couple of times, but I just have a personal dislike of movies where innocent people get murdered by someone who's just having a hissy fit. Of course, Rhoda actually, eerily, is about a lot more than just throwing a hissy fit.
