ALL AMERICAN FAMILY VALUES @ THE CINEPLEX

Here is the set up: sold out audience watching Brad Pitt and Jolie trying to kill each other on the big screen. 5 year old boy in the seat next to me with eyes clued to the screen as Pitt hauls off and kicks his "wife" and Jolie tries to stab her "husband" to death --- then they both pull guns on each other and suddenly the violence stops and they start to make love.

Mother of the 5 year old boy: "Oh my God! Nathan, cover your eyes!"

Father to the mother: "Why do they put that sort of shit in a family movie like this?"

Mother: "Nathan! Mommy will tell you when you can look again"

OK. Quick wrap up: It is OK for a small child to watch a married couple beat and try to kill each other with knives, guns and grenades. It is wrong to allow that child to see a husband and his wife kiss, hug and treat each as lovers. No, that is dangerous for a young mind to see. God forbid a child should see expressions of love. Hate and violence is always the way to go. On top of that, it is important to remember that a film staring two sex pots which is rated PG-13 is a "family film"

...Jesus.

People are just as stupid here in England when it comes to cinema going. I can remember when me and my friends went to see the first LOTR film. As the credits went up at the end of the film a couple sat behind us moaned "Well that was crap, it doesn't even have a proper ending" to which one of my friends turned round and said "It's a trilogy you moron!" The cinema burst into laughter and the couple ran off very red faced !
I am amazed what films parents will let children watch though and then they complain about the state of the nations youth!

Those are the kinds of people who shouldn't procreate.

They are going to wonder why the kid is all messed up about relationships one day.

Otherwise, did you like the movie? I know it's summer blockbuster material, but I was entertained. Plus, I could watch Miss Jolie sit in a chair for two hours and be absolutely enthralled.

If I were a parent to a 5 year old you can be damn sure I wouldn't be taking him to see an Angelina Jolie film.

What were those parents thinking?
