I must be getting old and prudish. Last night M and I went to the cinemas to see the Watchmen. For the life of me I can't understand why parents would let their kids watch this movie. There were several families in the theatre, with kids of primary school age. This movie contained lots of graphic violence not to mention the sex scenes too. Am I just too prudish?

Watchmen was definitely not meant for little kids. They wouldn't even understand the plot, anyway.

I think those were just fans who couldn't find a babysitter.

Here in New Orleans you'll see three generations trolling along Bourbon St. together, Granddad and Gramma, parents, and kids 6-13 in tow, checking out the bar scene, the strip clubs.... who know's what's going through their heads.
