WW#2: A movie you probably should have previewed before letting your kids watch.
"Happy" as a teen rented this WAY BACK WHEN and we just popped it in the VCR and watched... I mean, it wasn't rated R, so how BAD could it be. RIGHT?? WRONG... NOT for a child under 10!! (College boy PROBABLY wouldn't appreciate me TELLING this... LOL!) He had just turned 9 at the time. He was SO freaked out that he disappeared about 3/4 into the movie. THEN he had NIGHTMARES!! We rerented it and showed him the END so he could feel better about it, then he wanted to watch the whole thing with the end in mind and decided he liked it. Yeah... probably SHOULD have previewed THAT ONE!!! We got better about that... We just didn't THINK that day.
Don't get me wrong, I really liked the movie! And of COURSE we HAD to watch it AGAIN with the end in mind to see HOW we actually MISSED all of that!! WHAT a TWIST... but NOT! LOL! Even AFTER KNOWING the end, I wouldn't recommend this for smaller children. There are some pretty eerie scenes with visuals you really don't want running through their little minds in the night keeping them awake. We just HAD to have ours watch it again (but was 9, too...) because ALL he HAD seen was the scary stuff and we needed him to see how THIS story played out and wasn't ALL the bad it seemed. (Not sure if that made sense or not... but that was MY reasoning and it DID seem to help. Bruce Willis remains his favorite actor.) ;p *sigh*
