Default Is "Hangover 2" appropriate for 8-12 year olds?

My wife and I went to see "Hangover 2" on Saturday evening. We were amazed at how many 8-12 year old kids were in the movie theater. There had to be at least a dozen kids under the age of 12.

In case you haven't seen the movie, it is clearly (IMHO) inappropriate for pre-teens (numerous full frontal ding-a-lings and tranny sex images).

Stupid parents for sure. Well, at least parents who don't care enough to check out what their kids are seeing.

We went to see and it and I agree with you. I was amazed at how many young kids were in the theatre. Before the movie started the manager came in, to make an announcement, and I was thinking they were going to check ticket stubs or something of this nature. Instead they spoke about a fundraiser and joked that if you were underage and snuck into the theater, you may want to make sure you pony up some money for the fundraiser.

I seriously doubt in this day and age, that the movie showed or said anything that most of these kids have not seen before, but the entire theme of the movie was not age appropriate for pre-teens and under in my opinion.

The parents are telling the kids that this behavior is not only OK, but it is funny.
At that age, they do not know better and this will not be the only thing the parents will let their kids see and do.

Maybe tomorrow they will force their teacher up against a wall.

The movie is rated PG13. They should require couples to pass a mental exam before being able to have babies. Just because you can push them out does not mean you know how to be a good parent.

Haven't seen the Hangover 2 yet, but we saw same thing at the first one.

Parent sitting in front of us with 3 kids that looked between 7-11 years old. During the first swearing/vulgar scene the parents looked at each other, then shrugged it off. I thought I was going to blow a gasket! They knew they should have left, BUT decided not to because it would have been inconvenient for THEMSELVES!

There are too many parents out there that need to grow up and get a clue that it isn't about them anymore!

These same idiots bring their babies/toddlers to (non family type) restaurants during dinner hours too.

We saw it last week. There were some 8-12 y/o kids in our theater also. We both commented on how that type of movie is not for that age group. It was a darn funny movie though....

Their were some pretty young kids in the theater Saturday when my wife and I saw it. I'm pretty sure it was their 1st time seeing "Lady Boys" and a woman shooting ping pong balls out of her pussy (pictures at the end of the movie)

They were with parent(s) or 'guardians' I assume.

We rarely go out to movies now so I guess I am a bit behind on the ratings stuff. Thanks for the correction.

My buddy just went and saw Brides Maids with his gf and was amazed at how many parents were dragging their kids out of the theatre after 15 minutes of the movie because of the content. Its rated R for a reason, what are people thinking these days

My 19 year old son said it was very crude. My son's "measuring device" for crude and disgusting movies is very liberal. If he said that, I know for a fact that it isn't appropriate for young children.

If you go to movies about brain dead people, that are marketed to brain dead people, by money grubbing brain dead socialist Hollywood types....

...you may be brain dead yourself!

(might be a Jeff Foxworthy-ism...but you may identify...?)

I watched a bit of the first one...I found it typical of the moronic culture we have perpetuated.....and then quit watching....
