To refuse to take DD to the cinema to see this film
DinosaursCanDance · 26/11/2022 16:50
Because I don’t want to see it. DD is absolutely dying to see the new Matilda the Musical film but none of her friends also want to see and she doesn’t want to go alone so she’s begging me to go with her but I don’t really want to see the film to be honest. DD is 16. I know why she really wants to see it, because years ago she played Matilda in the west end musical show.
Am I being unreasonable?AIBU

Maybe there isn't public transport there. Maybe OP is just a lift really!

At 16 she should go by herself. Good practice for her to go out to an event on her own if no one else wants to go.
Maybe but I suspect the 16 year old just feels self conscious and needs a gentle nudge to do things on her own if no one else shares her likes

I can’t see any reason for you starting this thread other than to say “ my daughter used to be in Matilda you know!
Not just IN Matilda, but she WAS Matilda! In the WEST END!!
This is the most pathetic excuse for a bragging OP that I ever saw. I'm amazed that so many people have answered it in good faith.

Same thing here today with Dd also 16 and I’d take her except I want to watch the footie.
Her dad’s taking her at 8 😆
I ended up taking her instead of her dad. It’s just ended and I enjoyed it!!
Missed Messi’s goal but glad I went with her.

We’ve seen it! I hold my hands up, I was completely wrong about this film, I actually really enjoyed it, it is very good and is an excellent film. Really well made as well, cannot believe now wrong I was but I really enjoyed it.
Glad you had a great night with your dd
