No Wonder Kids are Corrupt These Days
Went to go see "Despicable Me" at midnight last night. For those of you that don't know, it is a PG rated movie with children as the targeted audience. After settling down into our seats, the previews began, like usual. However, most of us in the theater were slightly alarmed / confused when the promotions for new movies were Rated 'R' and depicted extreme violence and sexuality. I mean, I know kids these days are tainted, but come on. It showed previews for movies like: Resident Evil- Afterlife, Wall Street - Money Never Sleeps, etc. Partway through the previews, the reel stopped, and we were told to exit the theater to go to the one next-door; the reels had been switched. We passed another crowd of people in the lobby, about to enter our theater, who were equally confused as to why their previews were for kids movies; they had paid to see "Predators." The only downer to the whole thing was that the 'same seats' rule didn't apply while transferring theaters.
