     Because it sounds interesting.Yes, It is G rated. I say so with a sense of irony. After all, I remember back when I was a teenager, way back in the day--way back when I could not wait to watch R-Rated movies, but now that I am in my 50's; I look for what the plot line is, what the storyline is and sometimes what kind of special effects, especially 3D. Not the Rating and rarely whose in it, with the possible exception of if Samuel Jackson's in it, then it has a better chance of being good; such as the Avengers Movie, which I also watched and thoroughly enjoyed.The Avengers Poster                      Peace, Love, & Misunderstanding Poster
  •  BTW, I did go and see 'Peace, Love and Misunderstanding' and Yes, I did enjoy that one as well. Which one is my favorite--None so far--Enjoyable Yes, but not that enjoyable to list as favorite or Emmy Worthy, well maybe Jane Fonda as favorite lead actress, since she is now the 'grand old lady' of the movies--She is, IMO,  the sentimental favorite.

      I have yet to see this one, but I will soon. After all, IF the Republican Party has their way and the United States loses the Presidential Election by Electing Romney and/or if America loses the House of Representatives by keeping a Republican Majority and/or if America loses the Senate with a Republican Majority there; we will go back to these 'bad old days' if not the 'Dark Ages' themselves.
