Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Maybe Sharon Stone's behaviour reflects the limited experience she got with Czech people after Prague became a permanent back-up studio for Hollywood.

As a contrast to what she did, I shall mention that the Queen's first concert in Hungary remains legendary not only because it was the first by a (then) international top act, but because Freddie Mercury learnt a whole Hungarian folk song and delivered it flawlessly.

As an example of something similarly worse: Someone got me a Franz Ferdinand DVD as Christmas present, on the DVD, there is what could be called a "concert tour documentary", and it includes takes at a band interview in MTV's New York studio. And they repeatedly got these ignorantly superiorist questions, to which they barely found the diplomatic words to reply - e.g. ask whether they'll start writing songs once the US tour is over (as if there'd be no concerts in the rest of the world), ask whether they came to the US to become famous (they just flew over from a raging-success Paris concert...) and so on...

As for the film: I didn't even watch the first, won't bother with the second.
