I work part time at a local cinema, and last night some parents brought their 9 year old to see the Hangover Part II. shock

I didn't bust out the stinkeye like I wanted to but I did hoick those judgey pants up, oh yes indeedy.

AIBU?

YANBU. It's a 15 isn't it? Not the sort of thing I'd want my 9 year old watching. <cats arse mouth>

it does look like a kids film from what i've seen of it tbh

How did he get in, then? If it's a 15.

Here kids can get into any movie with a parent as long as it's not NC-17, which is very rare.

We leave it up to the parents' discretion.

Unfortunately. wink

BOF I'm not sure. I'll look for the tell-tale signs when I clean the bathrooms next grin

I've heard worse tbh.
My brother's ex allowed her dd to watch Child's Play when she was 3. Poor girl was terrified of tteddies.
Girl had also watched the exorcist (she was 5) I'm nearly 30 and don't like the exorcist.

After that the hangover is pretty tame really.

It's a small town cupnoodle , and I work at the school. I know how old all the kids are. smile

I dunno. I used to bribe mine to stay alone in hotel rooms while I went to the bar by giving them the remote and telling them they could watch unsuitable telly.

"it does look like a kids film from what i've seen of it tbh" - it's called the Hangover part II. Is that not a clue that it is not primarily aimed at 9 year olds?

Am with you Hully !!!

Mind, I'm not saying my approach is correct, just thta I don't think I'd be a suitable judge of ol Cheerful's judgey pants.

I don't think you're being judgey at all....a 9 year old? That's awful. He should be watching cartoons

Friends of mine take their kids to see lots of unsuitable IMO movies. I must admit I too am a bit judgey - although i did take DD (nearly 8) to see Pirates of the Caribean 3 which might be a 12A

When i went to the cinema to see the last king of scotland (sunday matinee) there were parents in there with children (between 6 and 10 years old i reckon). I'm sure they thought they were being very worthy and liberal and educational but i thought it was horrific.

nicespam Fri 17-Jun-11 17:25:42

grin i know it's not aimed at 9 year olds i was being sarcastic! should have added a hmm

CheerfulYank Fri 17-Jun-11 17:56:11

I mean, ((((SPOILERS!!!!))) between the drugs, the cutting off of fingers, the monkey giving blowjobs, the trans hooker saying "it's called BangKOK, honey, not BangCUNT", the insinuation that you could buy a child for $2000...I was a bit hmm

grin at hully ...feel free to judge my judgey pants! I'm a total prude when it comes to stuff like this.
