Scott, I'd just like to apologize for my outbursts on you forum. I have no wish to be on bad terms with you, as you're obviously a reasonable, learned person regarding the American Revolution. It's also obvious that Hollywood's cavalier treatment of this fascinating struggle annoys you as much as me.
It's just that it does become a little bit annoying when you see giant, multi-million dollar films that are sold around being touted as 'accurate' and 'realistic', yet are obviously not so. Even more annoying when your own nation is either over demonized to a silly degree (The Patriot) or completely removed as though they never existed (Saving Private Ryan, U-571), solely to appease the audience.
Anyway, on a separate note, have you ever seen a 1994 film called 'The Madness of King George'? It's a witty film about one of George III's bouts of madness in the late eighteenth century when he was King. It's quite a funny film, I suggest that you see it if you haven't yet...

I've had limited, but productive discussions with Nick Gill, webmaster of
MelGibson-Sucks.com. I don't completely agree with him, but we have some common
ground and he was helpful with the articles that I cited from the British
press in my article.No apology is necessary, except to the Australians, which
you already addressed in a previous post.
As far as the movie, I am familiar with the movie. I have not seen it, though
I heard that it was a witty movie, as you said. I actually don't watch many
movies because of the expense and the mediocrity of the majority of what is
