Years ago, when Curse of the Black Pearl was the only Pirates of the Caribbean movie, I watched it frequently and my sons liked to watch it with me. DH kept insisting that the movie was not appropriate for the boys and that it was violent and could be scary, despite the fact that they'd never acted scared when watching it. (and they were not embarrassed to show fear in front of me, fwiw)
I came home another day to find dh watching Lord of the Rings, the one with the giant spider with them. I told him he'd made his argument about pirates null and void right there.
