Tara McNamara, editor of KidsPickFlicks.com, guests on our Fandango Freshly Popped Blog with her mom's take on Prom, and why a Disney-fied version of the big night might be a good thing, at least if you're a parent of said teen moviegoer…
This is funny and so typical .
So you are telling me (the reviewer) that you got drunk on your prom night , got laid in the back of a pool house and you don't want your kids doing the same thing ?
I think you came out to be ok , instead of brain washing your kids why don't you advise your teenage daughter that if she does decide to have sex (trust me if she does there is nothing you can do about it ) to have safer sex with condoms and pick the guy she wants to be with intelligently instead of some jock .
As you may remember when you were her age you didn't necessarily asked your mom what kind of movies you could watch , and in 2 years she will be a legal consenting adult , so you can't hide her forever .
Great insight to a good movie. Maybe I should home school???
As parents it is our responsibility to guide our children in the process of decision making and life choices. As great as these movies are, I also think it's important to teach our children that the debauchery does exist and how we expect them to behave in the presence of bad influences. Exposing kids to both sides of the coin is the only way they can learn to make truly informed decisions. Thank you for sharing your view and prompting some deep thought!
I like the tongue-in-cheek comment about so-called "brainwashing" of your kids...at least i hope it's tongue-in-cheek...but if you want to protect them from most of the junk out there and put them in a pop culture bubble, you'll need to start from 4 or 5...good luck!
Nicely written...and needed.Don't give up hope
This is a good review.
Movie tickets: $8.00. Popcorn: $10.00. Candy: $5.00. The reaction to that idiot that posted the same comment too many times on Fandango: Priceless. (My computer spazzed out. Again.)
It's not your computer, it's fandango's website because it happened to me today. So unless both our computer's are flipping out which is highly unlikely it's the website, plus I'm using facebook and comingsoon.net at the same time and they are both fast and working without hiccups. So it's all good.
MINE HAS DONE THAT TOO!!!! I WROTE ONE TIME IT CAME UP 3 TIMES WTF !!!!!
"Welcome to the party, pal."
"I am serious... and don't call me Shirley."
"When am I gonna learn how to punch?"
"These go to eleven."
"Benjamin, have you ever been severely beaten about the face & neck?"
"Just keep swimming, swimming, swimming."
"You're gonna need a bigger boat."
"Jessica's got cable."
