I felt the same way after watching it. Plus, they use mostly models for actors (and actresses) now. Everything is way too polished and literal for the diminished wit of the modern-day movie-goer. This scene from the 1983 "Sudden Impact" Dirty Harry movie was really the last time you'd really see a genuine scene like this. Eastwood and the studio took a lot of heat for it. PC really started taking off about then with this and the whole Jimmy "The Greek" situation about the same time. The "bad guys" in the next Dirty Harry film would all be White.
