I enjoyed reading your posts Grond and Readwryt, while I was laughing on the floor. I believe P.J may also give some of the roles of the dwarves to women in some sort of attempt to be "non-descriminatory" adn an "equal opportunity employer".There would be no smoking or drinking in the movie, because we would not want kids to be influenced by a drunk orc or a dwarf with a pipe blowing smoke rings. There would be no magic, because children would think they could be conjuring goblins in the wave of a hand, and that would problaby lead to worship of some dark religion. I am not against women, but I dislike when male roles in the origional story are given to females in the movie. It just seems unlike the origional story that you so loved. Picture Gandalf as an old which. You get what I am trying to say. I must agree with everyone else in that if a Hobbit movie was made, it would have to stay very true to the book.
