I know, I know, I have been MIA....

I have a billion pictures to show you and stuff to tell you about. We have been to the beach. We have been to the mountains. We have had enough vacation to last a good long while. Next week the 3 oldest go to Church Camp. Then there is band camp. Then our Japanese exchange student. And then School starts back.

I WILL get to all of this. But first, THIS:

DO not rent this. Do not let the lady at the video store tell you that it just has a few swear words. I don't do swear words, but our TVGuardian can take care of those. Do not let her say that it is fine for family viewing. Do not be lulled into a sense of security because the middle school has a poster in the entry hallway advertising this movie.

Do not look at Owen Wilson on the cover. Because he is a hottie.

This movie sucks eggs. And it is vulgar. Disgusting. Rude. Inappropriate.

I had to fast forward through half of it and the other half we were reading because the TVGuardian was editing out some kind of vulgarity and muting the real words.

I took it back to Movie Gallery tonight. She sent me home with a replacement movie.

Bee Movie. Moviemom says that it is appropriate for preschoolers.

It better be. Or I am going to go all Drillbit Taylor crazy on Movie Gallery.

WOW, you have been MIA! I was starting to worry about you.....:) I have never heard of the movie, but will not rent it now. The Bee Movie I believe is pretty good. When I was a sub for 5th grade, they watched it. Hopefully, its better.

I knew you must be on vacation!

Bee Movie is great and was actually funny to me.

Would you be a dear and switch your link to my new blog? Pretty please? I'm going to close the old one soon.

Hey Cynthia,

We should start a category for this kind of post. We need more mom's to report on movies that they DID NOT think were family friendly.

Thanks for the info...I have to say though that I don't think I would have rented that one anyway...I've never even heard of it.

And, please don't go drillbit crazy...I don't think that you would be as loveable with all those obscinities (sp?) coming our of your mouth. :)

Thanks for the info, although im more interested in the TVGardian. That sounds interesting, does it really work?

Thank you because I LOVE Owen Wilson and It makes me so mad when they gear a movie towards children and then use unneccisary language and stuff.

Thanks for the heads up!!!
