a random anti-Hollywood moment

I liked when the shy glasses-wearing kid in Tropic Thunder became more confident as the movie progressed, but I hated that they showed his transformation by removing his glasses.  When they removed them, he wasn't likely to need the independence from opinion he had developed, because people were likely to treat him differently in the future simply because he no longer had those pieces of clear plastic on his face.
