Harry Potter is not a kids movie Corry. It is a movie for ALL ages.

Guess what, Corey. As others have said, give yourself a treat and check out one of the Harry Potter movies. Acutally, read one of the books. One of the wonderful things J.K. Rowling does is to "paint" wonderful images in our minds. She's quite a master of that.

I've heard about all the "possessed" things with regard to Harry Potter, but he's far from being possessed. The stories are wonderful ways for ALL of us to revv up our imaginations and have a great time. Give Harry a chance.

Well, I'm pretty certain that the parents or gardians accompany the kids who want to go see it.

Katie E; No, no, no, no, no, no, no, no,!! Haha!!

Corey, I'm curious. Why such a closed mind?

I wouldn't waste my money on that, when I can watch other movies and get some enjoyment out of them. I MIGHT watch it on TV for free. That's probably the only way I'll see it!
Corey... I know how you feel... I wait for it to come out on cable and then I may watch them then. I guess to me it all got to pushy when you have all the Lord of the Rings coming out, 1, 2, and 3.. then all the Harry Potter movies... not even sure which number we are on now, just after a while it loses it's luster. I watched the first Harry Potter and never really had much interest since, I don't doubt they are good movies, just tired of all the hoopla!

With that said... I watched My Super Ex-Girlfriend... cute movie but totally predictable!

Ummm I don't get your point. just because a parent goes to see a movie with their kids does not make it a kids movie.

Every HP movie I have seen in the theater has been primarily adults. As a matter of fact one time I saw HP in an adults only theater. You can not even enter this theater unless you are over 21. The place was packed.

All this Harry Potter talk.
I actually just got home from seeing the latest movie. I really enjoyed it. More than I thought I would since I was so disappointed with the last one.

Also, in light of the Harry vs Corey discussion, I think the books started out as children's books but they have turned dark. Especially books 5 & 6. They are very well rounded books. They have humor, love, death, sadness, violence, anger, hope.

Like my 4 year old son says, "You gotta try something new once in a while."

There's been some dirty goings-on concerning the HP boks.

Seems that some is either trying to steel them or illegal copies of the book were made.

GB, what I meant to say is that ANY movie a child wants to see, the parents would usually accompany him or her.

Four of my friends and I had a girls' night out and saw Hairspray. It was hilarious! I had not seen the original and had no idea what it was about. I haven't laughed that hard in a long time.

After getting my 4 year old in bed tonight, I sat down to sew and watch a movie at the same time - "Because I Said So". Not the best movie I've ever seen but a cute, light-hearted flick with some very funny moments. The biggest issue I had with this movie was that I realized I AM the Diane Keaton character (who is a goofy meddling mom with no life). Man, I should have watched "The Last King Of Scotland"!
