After a boffo opening weekend for 300, the R-rated, sexualized depiction of Spartan bloodlust, I heard a woman caller to a radio talk show express shock that parents had taken young children to see it. The lady said, quite rightly, that 300 is inappropriate fare for children.
Agreed. But just because a movie is inappropriate for children doesn’t make it appropriate for adults. The principle still applies: garbage in, garbage out. As for me, I’ll probably wait for the sanitized airplane version.
