If they haven't already seen it, National Treasure really is a good one, and actually has some historical facts. I let both of my over-protected children watch it (9 and 12).
I knew I liked you from the get-go! I like this place, too, because they give lots of info about the movie instead of just thumbs up or thumbs down. Unfortunately, National Treasure has been watched to death recently. I think I'll just have to incur the wrath (joking) and say no to this movie.

Its just a fun goofy time. Kids like it and adults get some of the humor too. Its a 'Win Win'! Tell us how it all comes out.

ps8, i wouldn't let them see the movie if you think that's what's best. mother's instinct is usually right.

i don't know anything about the movie, but there's been a good piece on howard hughes on the history channel recently. hughes was not only an eccentric genius (did you know that besides all of his other inventions, after being hospitalized from a crash flying an experimantal plane, h.h. re-designed the hospital bed such as like the ones commonly used today, with servos and motors for positioning the patient for comfort. his mind never stopped), but he was also a great american patriot.

OK, here's how it turned out. I asked my hubby what he thought - I know, I know, what a wacky idea! He said he thought that he and I should see it before we decide to let the boys see it. Boy, he's smart! What a sensible idea. So, when we drop them off, that's what I tell her, and she was ok with that. Her reason for wanting them to see it was that the history in history books is so dry and boring, but history itself isn't, and this is one way to show them history in an interesting format. I told her I agreed, but that this movie probably only has the thread of truth to it and also that if it only focused on his great achievements, there wouldn't be any question that they could see it. Unfortunately, there's quite a bit of time focused on his wild and eccentric lifestyle and that's the part that I am concerned about. I'm not sure she agreed with me that I should be concerned about that (they're pretty liberal), but she respected my views on it. So, to make a short boring story into a long boring story, it turned out just fine!

They ended up watching Pocahontas and then the true greatness of Bugs Bunny!
