Criminals on a Boat 3D

My DS age 6 was just dropped off after weekend contact with his father.

He was looking terribly guilty, he usually doesn't want to talk about his weekend but this time I pushed it because he looked so uneasy.

Apparently he was taken to see Pirates of the Caribbean 3D and told not to tell me where he had been.

I am angry, firstly because that film is presumably rated 12A for a reason, and secondly asking a child to keep a secret from his mother is not a ever good thing.

AIBU in thinking this man is even more of an arse than I thought he was?

Well he is entitled to take his son to see the film. But I totally agree with you about the secret thing.

Good on your boy for telling you, but he should never have been put in that position.

Your ex is an arse for that.

It's 12A because it's not guaranteed to be suitable for younger children, and parents have to use their informed discretion.

So it would be reasonable to take him, but your Ex does seem to have been a complete arse about it.

I haven't seen any of the previous Pirates movies, I have no idea how bad they are.

DS didn't particularly want to see it and there were a couple of other things at the same multiplex they could have seen. Seems strange to choose something he'd make him lie about.
