‘Butterfly Effect’ not for children

To the “mother” who dropped her three young (looked like 9-14 maybe) off at Sierra Cinemas Sunday afternoon: What were you thinking? The theater is off the hook; you signed a permission slip. Could that have been your first clue that the film was inappropriate?

If they happen to have nightmares, you might want to know that in the 45 minutes I squirmed in my seat, I saw: A beloved dog burned alive by a 13-year-old, who viciously swung a large piece of wood and beat his friends to a pulp; the main character’s insane father try to strangle him and beaten to death in front of him; a young mother and baby blown up by explosives planted by 13-year-old friends, driving one out of his mind.

Along with glimpses of child pornography and the main character’s 400-pound, mascara-wearing male roommate who loved sex, I was compelled to leave, wondering why it took me so long to get out!

My heart went out to the very young girls present and the lack of protection they were given. Consider this a movie review for those anxious to see Demi Moore’s young love! It’s not worth it!
