nothing to do with cooking...

Opinions wanted! This is about the movie "The Aviator". My MIL will be watching 3 of my kids tomorrow night. One is a 13 yr old boy. One is a 15 yr old boy with has Down Syndrome. The third is a baby, so she's not really part of my question. My MIL wants the boys to watch The Aviator tomorrow night. I'm not sure it's one I want them watching. I know he did some great things, but his lifestyle wasn't anything to write home about. She asked if it would be ok, which I appreciate, but when I said I wasn't sure, I'd do some research & let her know, she seemed kind of put out. I don't want to be overly protective, but it's sometimes hard to decide. I would dearly appreaciate any advice and inoput about this movie. IMHO, just because something is rated PG-13, doesn't mean that it is automatically appropriate for 13 & up.

I did not see it, but, if you feel that you don't want your kids watching, then by all means, tell her no. She can watch it by herself when they are not there. Find another movie that she might like to watch and rent it for them, or bring one from home that the kids like.

I go to "plugged in" for movie reviews in case I'm not sure:
http://www.pluggedinonline.com/movie...s/a0002001.cfm

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).
