My child would not be watching this movie either. I know it is based on a comic book but it is not appropriate for 8, 9 or even 10 year olds. It has a PG-13 rating for a reason.

Hi Sue,


I would not allow Ian to watch this movie either. Really the only PG13's he can watch are the Harry Potters.

I think that is a good way to handle it.

I'm going to file that away because I know this stuff is going to start coming up more and more.

I enjoyed the movie as well. But my reasons for not letting him watch have more to do with the darkness and intensity of the movie than it does with language. He would react to the movie by having nightmares and difficulty sleeping. At 9 I feel more comfortable knowing my son and how he'd react to limiting movies to nothing above PG. PG movies are ones that I want to know about though because he might have questions or concerns and it helps if you know where those are coming from. But I'm not going to get mad if his class watches Holes or Harry Potter some rainy day lunch. I'm also not going to think less of a parent who has no problem with their 8, 9 or 10 year old watching PG-13 movies. Because in all honesty depending on why it got that rating might influence me on whether Philip would get to watch. For example, I'm considering letting him watch The Golden Compass after he finishes the book. I'll need to re-watch it but from what I remember it was on the same level of intentsity as The City Of Embers.

Thanks ladies...


I think a lot of my problem is that my kids arent exposed to anything like this ever....we are overseas and the only american movies my kids get to see are the G ones (sometimes PG) and even then they are very late.
