How We Determine Our Grades

It is amazing how time and now being a parent opens your eyes to the content from movies we were raised on.  I was hoping to share with my children 12 & 10 this classic and enjoyable movie.  Yet, as my wife and I screened the movie, as we always do, we were shocked at the amount of vulgar language and sexual innuendos that spewed from the screen.  I never remembered this as a teen when I saw this movie, but there is no way I would let my kids see this movie. It had it’s cute moments, but I was uncomfortable watching as my expectations were much different.  Please look at this movie as a PG 13 movie, before deciding if your child should watch.
