Holden's Judgemental Behavior

138 Words1 Page

Holden can put an end to his judgmental behavior by watching the movie Rocky. Throughout the novel, Holden constantly judges people and calls them phonies. An example of this is when Holden says “I can just see the phony bastard shifting into first gear and asking Jesus to send him a few more stiffs”(20). Holden does not know much about who he is talking about but finds it necessary to judge them. In the movie Rocky, there is an example of not judging a book by its cover. This is when Rocky meets Adrian and they end up falling in love despite not being a clear match from the start. Rocky didn’t judge Adrian and it worked out for him in the end. Furthermore, watching the movie Rocky would be a highly effective aid to Holden’s judgmental attitude.
