If it's being talked about around your water cooler or conference room, you better believe that the women of 'The View' have an opinion on it.

When they're not yelling at each other or engaging in battles over contrary political worldviews, the group relaxes by taking in a film now and again. But even that is not without its peril, as James Cameron's 'Avatar' became the topic of debate this morning.

When they're not yelling at each other or engaging in battles over contrary political worldviews, the group relaxes by taking in a film now and again. But even that is not without its peril, as James Cameron's 'Avatar' became the topic of debate this morning.

Sherri Shepherd, today playing the role of "Elisabeth Hasselbeck," took issue with the film's portrayal of the U.S. military, saying that "what gave me a feeling in my stomach was when, all of a sudden, our Marines ... became the bad guys. I know it's a movie, but our boys are fighting for their country."

Shepherd proceeded to voice concerns over how the film, and consequently our military, would be received overseas.

What followed was a debate on obedience and following orders before Queen Mum Barbara Walters laid down her patented blend of dismissiveness and passive-aggressiveness.

"If you're a young kid, maybe it has some impression and you're impressionistic that the corporate, that the Americans are all bad. Otherwise, if you just take it as, forget the plot, as one of the most gorgeous movies you're going to see." Translation: "young kid" co-star, thanks for the interpretation, now let's just enjoy the movie.
