Selective interpretations

 The Man Who Lives in My House took the Hooligans to see Elysium.  They came home exhilarated.

"It was better than I was expecting," said the man who lives in my house.  "It was very political."

I had elected to stay home as movies with lots of explosions stress me out.  "Really?"  I said,   "What was the message?"

"Blowing stuff up!"  exclaimed the smaller hooligan.

"No," said the Man Who Lives in My house,  "The message was that there should be universal health care and equal access to resources.  It was anti elitist."

"And awesome guns.  I want one!"
