Taking Your Children to the Movies - A.O. Scott

I thought I'd share an article a reader sent.

I just had to mention, that this past weekend I watched one of my fav all times teen movies 16 candles with my kids (who had to turn their heads during the shower scene!), and my daughter Erin who is 11 asked if we all cussed like that back then. I told her no actually our parents would have smacked us if we used that language but thought it was interesting that at the time of watching it at her age I didn't think anything of it, and now it seems pretty racy.. does that mean I'm getting old or just a mom? Please make teen movies without f-bombs? Stacey Naranjo aka Mom to Kieran the Capri Sun Drinking Four Year old! (man that kid needs a shorter title!)P.S. I saw Goonies twice in the theaters when it first came out!

they were definitely racier back in the day. i revisited THE ADVENTURES IN BABYSITTING last year and blushed by some of the dialogue. i'm not a huge stickler for language. i'm a sucker for expletives. it's the violence that gets me.

I saw they were casting for a new Adventures in Babysitting with Miley Cyrus and Raven Simone, my husband didn't think it was a good idea but I know my girls will want to see Stacey
