On movies with "Americans" in them, what are the depictions of us?
Comedies, featuring you guys, show overly-proper people who drink tea 6 times a day with butlers who drive them everywhere. I know this isn't true... for the majority of the population anyway

Over-patriotic idiots that see America as the best thing ever and think that their big heroes and run in blindly into danger without thinking, often making things worse. These characters generally tend to die, but are seen as decent people that only wanted to do the right thing.

OR

Americans are seen as fat slobs. They also die a lot.


Americans just tend to die.

To be fair, the fictional films depict you as generally good and sympathetic people. The documentaries not so much.

Haw-haw-haw! Documentaries on who?
To be fair, most shows depict you as the odd one in the bunch, but just about every show on the educational channels depict you as the bad-guys.

Not really the whole country, but their are a lot of documentaries on those crazy obsessive Christian cults you guys have over there. Jesus Camp type stuff (I don't think the Jesus Camp documentary itself was British, but we make a lot of documentaries similar to it). Those guys are shown as nuts. They are.

And sure they do, the British Empire was pretty tyrannical. Also our accents make us awesome villains in movies.

You're calling us crazy for having a religion over here? Heck, %71 of your population is Christian. And maybe some other branches go overboard. But why can you blame them? The politically-correct human does everything he can to remove God from the picture! For instance, why was Christopher Columbus credited as he first white man to set-foot on American soil. He was not white, he was Hispanic. Leif Erikson was the first white-man to set foot on American soil (in 1,000 A.D.), and was a Christian.
BC, and AD have also been changed. There are also many other things that have been changed to totally remove God from the picture.
The Politically Correct figure is doing 2 times as much as any of those guys

No, I'm saying the over the top, Jesus Camp, "God hates fags" type of Christian is crazy. Not all of them.

And of that 71%, very, very few are practicing. Church of England is just the default response a lot of people put.

1. On the ethnic/race demographics according to your government, why are your native people labeled under "White British" instead of "English people"?

2. What do you think of Jaime Murray? Is she good-looking?

3. What do you think of the show Valentine?

4. Harry Potter?

1. Because it includes Scotland, Northern Ireland and Wales. L doesn't like the term British, but technically, according to government, that's what we are.

2. Who?

3. What?

4. It sucks.

Thought I may as well throw my ideas into the mix....

Following on from the British Empire, there are quite a few descendants from different parts of the world in Britain. Hence there are White British, Asian British, African British etc, all mixes from different backgrounds but still British.

QUOTE
2. What do you think of Jaime Murray? Is she good-looking?


Did a google search, and yeah, she's not bad! I don't know if you guys have a FHM list similar to Britain of the world's hottest girls, but number 1 is a brit...Sheryl Cole. She's just pushed Megan Fox off the top position, and I think I may agree with that choice!

QUOTE
3. What do you think of the show Valentine?


Never seen it, but will try and watch it online sometime soon. They're showing an American show now on one of our main channels called the Mentalist and I think it's brilliant!

QUOTE
4. Harry Potter?


To quote a fellow Brit on here earlier... "Meh". The books are OK to read and the films entertaining, but waaaay too much hype! It's not that good!

Funny story about from one of our top comedians who's a fan though.. he was standing in the line waiting to get the new Harry Potter book along with a bunch of other fans. It's about 10PM and the stores are opening at midnight just for the new book.
A drunken homeless guy walks by, stinking of booze and starts shouting in a slurred voice:
"He dies you know! Harry Potter dies!"
He carries on down the line until at one point this kid, can't be more than eight or nine, bravely steps out of the line dressed in his full Potter outfit and waving a toy wand...
..He goes up to the drunk and with a serious look on his face waves the wand and shouts:
"Expelliarmus!"

Brilliant story and apparantly true! What a kid!

Also, to answer a question earlier about taxes... my last one was about 15% of the total. Harsh....
