We are arguing.

It's an 18. Graphic violence and nudity and a fuckton of swearing.

DD1 of course is claiming that Eeeeevverrryyyyooonnnnne has seen it.

Has anyone seen it? Is it really that bad? I wouldn't mind watching it myself but I don't think we should let her.

OMG no way is it suitable for a 12yo. Honestly you will regret it.

OnionKnight Tue 19-Jul-16 19:02:47

No fucking way is it suitable.

It's a 15 I think isn't it? The sex is quite graphic though, including a scene where he gets fucked from behind by his girlfriend using a strap on...

I wouldn't let mine. It's so graphic in places that I had to turn away. Swearing is very frequent f words. There are a couple of sex scenes and some very crude sexual jokes. Watch it yourself first. It's brilliant but definitely NOT a kids film.

It's a 15 I think and there is a very recent thread on this. i will try and find.

It's an 18. I think the BBFC are pretty good on their ratings. Your dh is bonkers

Afaik it's a fifteen not eighteen, but no. I haven't let DS (13) watch it either.

redhat Tue 19-Jul-16 19:04:22

At leat watch it first. It is 18 in most countries, I'm really not sure why its a 15 in the UK. I wouldn't let my 15 yo watch it.

HelloWadeKinsella Tue 19-Jul-16 19:04:28

No no no - definitely not suitable! I'm 27 and I felt like even I was too young for it. 😂

Is he trying to be a cool dad? hmm

My 13 yr old DS has not seen it.

Let kids be kids for a bit

NatashaRomanov Tue 19-Jul-16 19:05:09

Nope. Just nope. It is a great film. But not suitable for anyone under 15. TBH, i'm not sure why it didn't get an 18 rating. Sex. Graphic violence. Rather crude language.

Coffeethrowtrampbitch Tue 19-Jul-16 19:05:17

No,no! Ds is 9 and loves superhero movies. I am a walkover of a parent, but it was a minute and a half into Deadpool when I decided he wasn't seeing it until he was 18.

Unless you want to explain a slightly ambiguous scene to you dd as 'she was shagging him with a strap on' turn it off NOW!

iklboo Tue 19-Jul-16 19:05:43

It's a 15. How, I have no clue. Maybe because it didn't drop the c-bomd. That's probably the only swear word not in it.

UmbongoUnchained Tue 19-Jul-16 19:06:06

It's a 15. Give it a watch and see how you feel. I imagine most of her friends probably have seen it.

Sierra259 Tue 19-Jul-16 19:07:39

No way should a 12yo be watching it! I was also surprised it didn't get rated 18.

HeartsTrumpDiamonds Tue 19-Jul-16 19:09:05

Umbongo that's what she says.

She also says she will "just watch it on her own" when we are not around, we are out tomorrow night and on a transatlantic plane next week.........

fanniboz Tue 19-Jul-16 19:09:15

No way OP. Even with an adult with them, it's nowhere near suitable for a 12 y/o

dimots Tue 19-Jul-16 19:09:34

Must admit I was surprised it wasn't an 18, although the violence tends to be cartoony type like most Marvel films, rather than brutal such as the initial scenes in 'Saving Private Ryan'

redhat Tue 19-Jul-16 19:10:05

If you'd let her watch game of thrones without any concern then go for it (but anyone who lets their 12 yo watch GOT needs their head examined)

HeartsTrumpDiamonds Tue 19-Jul-16 19:10:27

Pretty sure our Sky+ parental controls would stop the first one of those happening though.

HeartsTrumpDiamonds Tue 19-Jul-16 19:11:11

The only one chez Hearts who watches GOT is Mr Hearts.

TheHobbitMum Tue 19-Jul-16 19:11:22

No! It should be an 18 really! My 14 amd almost 15yr olds are not watching.... Ever LOL

peachpudding Tue 19-Jul-16 19:23:43

I watched it with my 13yo he is quite intelligent and isn't fazed by sexuality/nudity. He has quite a good understanding of the different between TV violence and movie fantasy violence.

So I guess its down to individual children, but most of his classmates at school have watched it. They see a lot worse on the play station..

I know a lot of mothers are very precious of their DC but this is what children watch now, no biggy.
