Movies are, of course, not written by rooms full of experts obsessing over every detail. Even a carefully constructed script will get changed on the fly, or lines will be improvised on the set based on what Ryan Reynolds thought sounded good in the moment.
But in order to distract ourselves from the horror of everyday life, it's fun to overthink some select throwaway lines, because I'm telling you, they tend to completely break a film's universe if you take their implications to the logical end. For example ...
Bright -- "So I need you to take your fat, Shrek-lookin' ass back to your vehicle and drive the f**k off to Fiona!"
To help stem the tide of the movies they're losing to other streaming outlets, Netflix threw a lot of money at Bright, which starred Will Smith as a member of the LAPD. But in Bright's universe, he is learning to share the world with orcs, elves, and all other kinds of magical creatures who are on the surface different from him. Sadly, what could've been a decent allegory about race relations gets all garbled up by the fact that Bright's script is about as sound as a basement made of pudding.
At one point, in a confrontation with an orc, Smith says, "So I need you to take your fat, Shrek-lookin' ass back to your vehicle and drive the f**k off to Fiona!" Ya know, like a person would say.
Wait A Minute ...
So, despite the fact that this is a fantasy world with actual orcs, apparently everything occurred in the exact same manner as our real one, up to and including the release of the hit Dreamworks film Shrek? So in the Bright universe, Hollywood made a blockbuster movie -- nay, a goddamn franchise -- based around their equivalent of a crude racist caricature?
