Not A Mother-Daughter Movie

Hubby was away last week and my elder daughter went away early this weekend and is still away, though hubby is back now. Anyway, I went to the younger on Saturday and asked if she wanted to see a movie on Sunday afternoon. We looked at what was out there. Out of all the movies listed I wanted to see Finding Dory, Ghostbusters, and Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates. I'm not sure my daughter wants to see Finding Dory. We both want to see Ghostbusters but decided we wanted to see some Zac Ephron. I am used to all the swearing in movies, even though I don't like it, but sitting through this movie with my daughter was a little awkward. We did laugh together but when I walked out I said, "It's not exactly a mother-daughter movie." She agreed but said it was funny. Yeah, there were some raunchy scenes and conversation, not something my daughter and I will be talking about with each other or others. I also thought of the actresses and wondered if I were asked to be in a movie like that I would probably have to turn it down. I just couldn't swear that much, nor would I want my family seeing it. And, spoiler alert, you have to watch pretty much the entire movie before you will see Zac Ephron without a shirt on. Should have seen Ghostbusters.

when my girls were younger I would go and watch the movies in the morning and then decided if the movie was appropriate for their age as well as their upbringing. Did you know that my children have never seen any of the Bart Simpson series - I never approved!

I nor my kids have seen The Simpsons. That show just never appealed to any of us.

@patgalca well I always say, we lead by example and our children can only be a little better than us if they follow the good parts of our leading.

@Inlemay Unfortunately one of them curses like a sailor. I keep telling her to stop but it doesn't do any good. Except one year I said our home was a swear-free zone during Lent. LOL! That worked.

Certainly there are some films you don't want to see with your kids.:)

I have not seen this movie before but I do have a free movie ticket. I was going to go see The Secret Life of Pets.

sorry. don't you just hate it when a movie is such a let down? i also do not see the need for so much swearing in these movies. like they think that makes it funny?

I know. There are way too many movies that count on swearing to make them funny. Not cool.
