Hey guys it's chibichan or..use to be. Apparently I can't get into my old account. But yeah..I'm back. Haha...Sort of. I'm sorry if this was already posted but I really needed to vent about this.

Anyway I have seen this movie when it was airing on Nick. And it angered me so much I wrote a letter to Nickelodeon. I know iCarly is for pure mindless entertainment but honestly the writers should've at least done their research instead of being ignorant and stereotypical. I actually watched only about half of it but still...

For one the bad guys were obviously asian. The shooting location was set in California and not Tokyo, Japan as they said they were supposed to be in. Would that be considered false advertising??

About most of the things considered "Japanese" was fake even the hotel room was just random Asian stuff thrown together. The two Japanese hosts for Carly and her friends were speaking in such a low and cruddy form of Japanese it didn't even sound like the language itself. And think one of Carly's friends. The girl was being a rude ignorant idiot..

In other words if they were actually planning in teaching their audiences a new culture in a positive light. They failed in every aspect. Also I'm not a fan of the show far from it I find the girl who plays Carly rude, snotty and a smart mouth.

You know maybe i'm just over-reacting about all of this...But even so I'll still be offended by that movie.

chibi-nee chan (did I say that correctly?) I was just thinking about you yesterday.
I noticed you haven't been around.  That show IS about as mindless as it gets.  My kids love it so it is on frequently.  I hadn't realized that they were hyping the location, but has been a while since it originally aired so I may have forgotten.
Anyhow, welcome back!
was feeling nostalgic

Yes you did XD. And thanks!

Yeah apparently I remember them advertising on their commercials that Carly and her friends are going to Japan but recently when looking at the internet movie database website it says filming location is California....

I used to live in Japan, so it sounds like this would really piss me off. Thanks for warning me to avoid it!

Oh my goodness, you don't know how much I hate this show! The girl who plays Carly isn't very attractive, her singing sucks and so does her "acting". She's always screaming her lines on the show, as if we're all hard of hearing. It also doesn't help that she has a screechy voice. Can some one please put a muzzle on her mouth and a brown paper bag over her head?

I hope she doesn't go down the Amanda Bynes road...from cute to hot to skank....in less than 2 years. Confused

Well, I guess it's been said by the older of us many times here, Nick today is NOTHING like it was in the earlier days (1980s-late 1990s). It's just a bunch of crappy shows thrown together now.

What's so bad wrong with Amanda Bynes?  I haven't seen much from her in the past few years... I definitely don't see how she became a "skank".  I stumbled upon a Cosmo interview she did a few months back and she still seems rather wholesome.  No talk of getting out there and pulling a Britney/Paris/Lindsey.
 
But yeah... iCarly... the show does indeed suck.  The characters are beyond irritating, and Nick recycles their actors like crazy.  I've seen several actors on Drake and Josh, several Drake and Josh actors on other crap shows, etc.

I don't think she's attractive either! The same goes for unusual squished faced Selena Gomez from Disney. I don't get the entire premise of the show, two little girls have a "web show" and it's magically popular for doing ignorant things? Crap like that on youtube is a dime a dozen. Also, guess who's really watching little girl webshows on youtube? I'll give you a hint, it probably isn't her classmates like the show depicts.
