None of my grandkids are going to see it

What passes for a newspaper in our fair city publishes synopses of movies currently playing around town. A number of them have a Parents Guide appended to them to let Mom and Pop know about anything that some parents might find unsuitable for their kids. Here's the Parents Guide for Queen Latifah's new movie "Just Wright":
There is an implied overnight tryst with Queen Latifah nearly dancing in bed the next morning, covered by a sheet. There is other mild sexual innuendo, wine and beer drinking, occasional mild profanity, and some intense basketball action.
Oh no!

Quick! Cover your eyes!

They're playing basketball!


  1. ; -) I think a word of warning should be had for boring basketball action.... more so than intense.

  2. You're right about that! Whoa! 'Intense basketball'? Not until they're 18.

  3. I haven't seen this one yet. I'll have to google it.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog today.

    Have a great weekend!

  4. I always wonder what my kids think happened when there is a post-coital something or other in a movie... Certainly they don't know what is being celebrated, so they must make something up. Like... "Ohhh, she's happy because the sun is shining so bright!" or "I bet she's so happy because she got to sleep in!"

    p.s. Thanks for putting me in your spotlight!
