Re: Anti-Smut Stuff

An e-mailer:

Your comment about DVD’s containing alternate “clean” versions of films is…well – silly. Why would you rent a film for your family that is not intended as family-fare? Is there really anything achieved by watching a G-rated version of “Scarface”?

I’m tired of parents asking Hollywood to raise their kids. Movies have ratings for a reason – use them. Stop looking to have everything child-proofed. Some movies aren’t meant to be viewed by children.

Try this: instead of requesting filmmakers neuter their work, how about renting TWO films that day – one for everyone and one for you later when the kids are asleep.

I happen, incidentally, to be a fairly conservative Republican who often finds myself nodding my head in agreement with your posts. On this subject, however, it seems you have more in common with the PC police than the G.O.P.

I actually basically agree. There are more than enough things one can do with the kids that don’t involve movies that include things you don’t want them to see. That said though, if there is the technology, and a market…why not.
