I think not only is this rude to the director, it's a total waste of donated money.
Don't like M. Night Shyamalan's movies? Here's a perfect solution - don't see them!
Even if you have only $1 to donate, my gosh, there has to be SOME cause out there more worthy of donation...a homeless shelter, earthquake victims, the Red Cross, animal rescue....something that really could need that money. A millionaire going to movie school is not one of these.
So I guess I feel not only is it rude to the director, it's rude because it's such a fake "charity," it's like a slap in the face to real charities that really do need donations for important purposes. Hmmmmm. Not sure if that makes logical sense, but it makes sense in my head.
