Disappointment

Last night at work we played the movie Bruno. I wasn't sure how this movie would go over so it was only scheduled for one showing. That worked out because we only had 20 folks come to see it. What really disappointed me was that 4 of those 20 were children. Three 12 year olds and one 4 year old.

Two of the 12 year olds(boys) came out almost immediately. When asked why, one boy replied "Well! He's gay and I've seen too much!". The movie is full of graphic and perverse sexual activity.
Mom, however, sat in the theater until the movie ended while boys were out in the lobby. Very disturbing.

Any message that Sacha Baren Cohen was trying to put out was lost under the shocking content.

I can't believe the mother would chose to stay in there with her boys outside unattended/bored . . . but thankfully they left. Let me tell you, I pray those boys keep their moral standards. A 4y.o.? That is just ridiculous! There are already offensive enough people out there w/out making gross films! Cohen needs to leave the industry.

That is disturbing. I have a young child and I cannot believe anyone would take a 4 year old to a movie like this. The film industry needs a major overhaul.
