bring BABIES to an R rated movie? like, EVER?
We saw Prometheus today. It is an R rated movie, and there was some gore, lots of loud noises, and screaming.
The actors weren’t the only ones screaming. There were like 3 babies there, crying at different times because, surprise surprise, a BABY doesn’t want to be in a loud action/gory/screaming movie! Stupid, stupid, stupid parents. I don’t CARE what your excuse is – GET A SITTER OR STAY HOME, or I might just form a mob with the rest of the theater and chuck your baby at the screen 🙂 (and to all the parents – yes, I’m looking at you. I hate your kids, and no, I don’t need to meet them to figure that out.)
EDIT: here’s the 3 minutes trailer for anybody that isn’t familiar with the movie: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iIJeQNyZ6VE&feature=related

Why would anyone bring a baby to ANY movie?
That’s so bizarre! A loud theatre is no place for a baby!

Really? They allow babies in? I’m not a mum so I don’t know about these things but yeah, that seems a little odd to such a movie!

I HAAATE that. I think it’s seriously one of my worst pet peeves. I don’t understand it either. SO annoying.

@urchin: I know, I never understood why you’d bring a baby to any movie.
I remember a family that brought a baby (like, a YOUNG baby) and two toddlers to Chronicles of Riddick (the Vin Diesel movie). It wasn’t a gory movie, but it’s violent action, DEFINITELY not a place for a baby and toddlers. Their toddlers ran up and down the aisle (behind us) until someone finally went and got someone from the theatre. The employee came and talked to them, but the mom just took the baby down to the top of the area where you walk in. They were eventually asked to leave. I’m surprised the people at the ticket counter let them in.

That’s just.. Wow. This is exactly why I like the 21+ theaters.

Someone once brought their 8 year old to an R rated movie. There was a lot of nudity and sex/sexual content. Why would you do that? The child was obviously uncomfortable and asked his dad if they could leave several times but the dad wouldn’t budge.
A girl brought her toddler to the midnight premier of the last Harry Potter movie as well. She left within the first 15 minutes of the movie, but I think most of us that had been standing in line for an hour for tickets were thankful she did, but how can you expect a toddler to be comfortable in a packed and loud theater at midnight?
I don’t understand people sometimes.

I would say it’s poor management. The manager or usher should not allow that at all. R rated means adults only, no kids. Should be enforced…

Spot on!!! Unbelievable the parents out there today….get a sitter or stay home. No excuses.

@Cady: It was enjoyable, but I wouldn’t call it great. It’s very confusing until towards the end. I would give it a B+

::Eyeroll:: My father thought it was a good idea to bring a 4 year old me to Diehard with Bruce Willis when it was in theaters. I remember it was July 4th… we were supposed to see fireworks, but it rained, so this is what happened instead.
What an asshat. Him turning off our cartoons to watch horror movies in the house when I was a child & this instance in the theater hasn’t done well for me in my adulthood. We saw Robocop in the theater too, now that I think of it.
Let me be a testament to any parent who might think it’s not affecting your children.
It will. I’m living proof. DO. NOT. DO. IT!!!

I don’t mind babies in the theater as long as the parents take the baby out if it starts to cry or fuss. I’m really not concerned about a tiny little baby seeing the movie because it’s not like the kid is going to remember the thing. Maybe the sitter fell though and they really wanted to see the movie and get out of the house – people shouldn’t be chained to their homes simply because they have a baby.

@Leland: “Maybe the sitter fell though and they really wanted to see the movie and get out of the house – people shouldn’t be chained to their homes simply because they have a baby.”
Yes, yes, they should. OR they should get out of the house at a family friendly location, like a PG movie.

Wow, seems like that would be rather loud and unpleasant for a baby!
