Way To Crash The Cars
I know I may take heat for this but I have to share my heart.
Cars hit the theaters a couple weeks ago and I thought it would be a clean film I could take my four year old daughter to. After all, I thought, it is a G rated film.
But upon reading the review I was reminded that I'm not in Kansas anymore. The Disney film that is geared for young children contains language that, frankly, I don't want my daughter repeating. It has the audacity to use multiple sexual innuendos and even a few inferences to drug usage, all to get a chuckle from mom and dad.
The reality is, to a lot of our de-sensitized ears these excerpts will go unnoticed but I just can't see exposing my daughter to a two hour movie that will do little to fix her mind on things above. Call me over protective or call me a right wing nutcase but I see her exposed to enough junk in her day to day grind - why would I pay Disney intensify the problem.
Needless to say, I was a little disappointed at the G rating the film received, especially when I saw that Facing The Giants has been rated PG. What's that all about?
