I just watched Stuck in Love on Netflix. It is filed under comedy. I consider it a horror movie.
Every time a scene came up with teenagers doing something they shouldn't, I would get this curled up feeling in my stomach and worry about my little girl and all the trouble she might discover in the dreaded teen years.
There was a scene where a high school girl with a drug problem got high, slept with someone of questionable character who she might have just met at a party, and needed to go to rehab. I turned my face into my husband's arm to hide my eyes.
Other parents with older children are constantly, constantly saying, "Enjoy it while you can. It goes so fast." I can't tell you how tired I am of hearing it, yet also realize it's true.
Now, in all seriousness, Stuck in Love is a decent movie and it wasn't violent or horrible. I just can't believe how I've changed. Seven years ago, horror movies were filed in the horror section. Now, anything that shows kids in trouble or kids doing normal but naughty stuff is upsetting to me.
How has having children changed your viewing experience?
