We're getting used to seeing products being ostentatiously plugged in movies, the same way that we've gotten used to air pollution. Problem Child, with a flagrant soft-drink commercialette, is just another typical example. The way things have been going lately, though, it won't be long before we start seeing coming attractions interrupted by commercials. (Hmmmm, is an idea like that patentable?)
