To think this is not an appropriate film for baby club?

I was looking forward to going to baby club and checked what they were showing and was quite taken aback to see it was the movie about a porn star.
The story of Lovelace the star of 'Deep Throat' confused

Aib a bit precious, or is this inappropriate? What parent would want to watch that with their small baby?

pinkbear, if you wouldn't want to watch the film 'with a bunch of strangers' then that's a different issue. It has nothing to do with the presence or otherwise of a baby. hmm

It's also not a particularly select choice – it's a fairly mainstream film.

====> Off the point- MyThumbs- that is an absolutely brilliant point about breastfeeding and vampires. I am stunned nobody has thought of that parallel before. YOu could easily get a PhD out of that thanks

Lady - absolutely that's my choice, hence why I wouldn't go. Nice of you to agree with me on that point. hmm

I didn't say anything about the babies being there. I'm fairly certain that my 12 wk old wouldn't come back to me in future years and say she remembers watching a film about a porn star making millions..... Just the same she won't remember she watched dumbo either.

Yabu , the film is for adults , babies wouldn't have a clue what's going. on on screen , it's not going to do them any harm , and it is a film about Linda Lovelaces life , not a porno film.

"I thought even though the films were meant to be for parents they still had to be a u or pg."

You thought wrong. "Big Scream" type screenings (for adults plus a baby under 1 year) have permission to show any cert film.

It is only if children over 1 are admitted that they then become "Kids Club" type screenings, up to 12A.

If your local cinema is only showing U and PG at 'Big Scream' screenings, that is a local decision (perhaps because they have not yet applied for permission?) not because it is impossible.

pinkbear, I know you didn't say anything about the babies being there. That was my point. That's kind of the point of this thread – the OP doesn't think it's an appropriate film to watch with a baby, not that it's not an appropriate film to watch with a bunch of strangers.

Thanks StillSeekingSpike! grin grin

Have just been inspired by your enthusiasm to have a good look on google scholar, and you are right, there is nothing! I am totally going to become the world expert. After I have had this next baby. If I don't forget.

Big Scream was fantastic when I had DD. the one activity in the week that was for me. So much so that DD1 is having her morning with grandma on a Thursday when DD2 arrives so I can go again!

As others have said Lovelace is a film about domestic violence and the stark contrast between a public persona and the life behind the screen. Meant to be quite harrowing. DH has no interest in seeing it whilst I would like to.

It's not a porn film, you know. It's a movie about a porn star. If it was a porn film and full of sex scenes a la porn, it would be rated NC17 or X.

You're being way beyond PFB and a bit daft.

The babies won't know or care.

I actually really want to see that film. Linda Lovelace led an interesting life and it'd be good to see how Amanda Seifried portrays her. If my local cinema shows it in baby club then fantastic.
