ridiculous” in the sense that the principles of international relations are being undermined in their contents to give more emphasis on the unnecessary and the profitable. The following is an enumeration of my top five most ridiculous films about international relations:
Despite the large fanfare, Pearl Harbor (2001) has a lackluster reputation as an international relations film because instead of having a clear understanding of the Pearl Harbor incident, viewers tend to focus on the love story and not the political issue surrounding it. Had the title been altogether different, rather than a significant event in World War II, it would, as critics say, just be another “sappy” romantic film with no real social and academic relevance (The Internet Movie Database (IMDB)). It makes one wonder “Why is the movie entitled Pearl Harbor when the story does not center on the impact and implications of the real incident but on the sensationalized lives of particular individuals?”
