EbonyandBathory 5 | 249 16 Feb 2008 / #1Have you ever noticed that in American movies people with a "Ski" surname (Zalinski, Kowalski) they are always some sort of side character or comic relief. Like a clumsly scientist or mooseheaded strongman. I understand that "Bondski, James Bondski" just doesn't sound as cool and I'm not accusing Hollywood of some anit-Polish agenda, but isn't that interesting? I know, in "The Break Up" Vince Vaughn is constantly wearing Polish stuff and has the last name Grobowski but that may be the sole exception, and that's a comedy, he's not an action hero or a spy or anything. Maybe Anglo-Saxon names like Bruce Wayne and Indiana Jones are just more pleasing to American ears. Plus could you imagine this line of dialogue: "You know it's strange, Superman is never in the same room as Clark Kentowski?"
