If you wanted to take your 8 year old daughter to the movies, which movie out of these would you choose?
A) Saving Mr. Banks
B) The new Hobbit movie
C) The Secret Life of Walter Mitty
D) The Wolf of Wall Street
Got your answers? Okay. The correct answer was...D. Yes, a dad took his 8 year old daughter to see The Wolf of Wall Street, then came out 30 minutes later, very upset that it wasn't a family movie. Uh, sir, that movie is rated R, and is longer than the Hobbit movie. What on earth possessed you to think that it was at all appropriate??
To clarify: I do not have a problem with parents taking their kids to see more adult movies. However, I highly doubt any 8 year old girl would want to see a movie that has way more scrabbling than The Godfather movies, copious drug use, and is about a criminal who scammed a whole bunch of people out of their life savings.
