Making the Grades

Release Date: 26 October 2012

Because we only usually review G, PG, and PG-13 movies at Parent Previews we did not review this title. For your convenience, we have provided some brief information about the film’s synopsis and content.


In this epic production, the same group of actors (including Tom Hanks, Halle Berry and Jim Broadbent) plays various characters from different times and places. Yet their lives are somehow link together, their hopes and dreams reincarnated from one generation to another. This ambitious script is based on a book by David Mitchell.

My wife and I walked out after 30 minutes. My wife wanted to walk out after 10 minutes. Nonsensical violence for its own sake. It seemed as if Hollywood wanted to push every outrageous psychic button they could find. Too much blood. Too much mean, degrading imposition of one human upon another. I’m just glad we left before the pet dog was killed (per other reviews). I really regret not having researched the reviews more thoroughly, though many are misleading. This movie is not suitable for any age. Spend your money elsewhere!!!

PS I’ve only walked out of 3 movies in over 60 years of viewing films!

I would like to 2nd Bob’s remarks. This movie begs you to follow along through every possible anti-moral scene in the hope you will see how it resolves in the end. I and my family could not take it, feeling offended at every turn, unsure when it would be safe to once again look at the screen as it hopped from time-frame to time-frame. I ususally enjoy movies with Tom Hanks and the pre-views looked stunning. However, like the prior comment: I wish I would have checked the reviews first before subjecting myself and family to this one.  We walked out after 40 minutes, wishing I had done so much much sooner.
