Kids watching R-rated movies
We went on a rare date night recently to see The Hangover (I know! How lame are we to be the last ones to see this). It's a very funny movie but VERY R-rated, and anyone should know that going in. I already had my eyebrows raised when I saw some kids who looked to be 11 or 12 in there. But then just as we were sitting down a group walks in with a little girl who was about 3, maybe 4 years old. Unbelievable.
The movie was hilarious, but very adult. There was of course lots of crude language, drug references, lots of nudity both male and female, graphic car crashes, you get the picture. This ain't Sesame Street. As the lights came up and that family walked past me I just felt sick realizing what that little girl had just seen. It really kind of ruined the movie a little for me.
