Movies & Children

We watched The Hangover II last weekend and I was shocked that there were kids inside the cinema! The movie is really funny and I did enjoy watching it. But it really bothered me that a kid, barely 10 years old was laughing with so much exaggeration.

They were sitting behind me, and this kid was leaning forward — laughing almost at my ear. And it wasn’t a “ha-ha” funny laugh… its more like “ha-ha, I’m a kid watching an adult movie”. I glanced at them and I almost jumped out of my seat to see not one, but three kids. I didn’t see the parents though. I’m sure they were with an adult somehow because I heard someone shush the kid.

I checked the rating for this movie and it’s:

PG-15 โ€“ Under 15 not admitted unless accompanied by an individual over 15. Some material may not be suitable for children.

MPAA rating says: (under 17 not allowed unless accompanied by individual over 18)

Rated R for pervasive language, strong sexual content including graphic nudity, drug use and brief violent images.

I can’t believe it! It’s right there… pervasive language, strong sexual content, nudity, drug use, violent images! All of them included in this particular movie. And they still let children watch it. In my opinion, children below 15 shouldn’t be allowed inside. PERIOD. Whether with adult supervision or not, they shouldn’t be allowed to watch because how can a parent supervise a child and enjoy the movie at the same time?
