Funny, but even the wardrobe in "HSM" isn't legally acceptable in some Utah High Schools.

Andy

Haha! My friend works at this theatre as a projectionist and told me of this mistake! There were some angry mothers!

I read this article just now, and thought that I might enjoy watching the "Sex Drive" Film; all that the Moms had to do was just leave the theatre with their kids; everyone is just to sensative these days. There was really no reason to complain.

Wont somebody think of the children!!!

If I had been there, I would have been ticked. This theatre has made some mistakes before.

It is still one of the best theatres around here.

Once it's in, it's in.

Those children will never have it out of their minds. Sad.

I think I smell a lawsuit coming... ouch!

What?

T&A has to be better than HSM3.

Amber

That is seriously hilarious.

People in Utah need to grow up!

Although it's not what they were looking for, I am sure that ANY movie would be better than HS Musical.

Shouldn't be...

a big deal. It was a mistake. It should be the end of the story. That would be really disappointing if it goes any further.

Mistakes

Let he who has made no mistakes in their life throw the first stone. Geeez, the theater made an honest mistake. Yes it was unfortunate and, yes, I would have been upset too had I been there. But, the theater has acknowldeged the mistake and made an attempt to right their wrong with free movie passes and concession passes. This world is too quick to judge and too slow to forgive. Give them the benefit of the doubt. Let's get over it and move on. Maybe you can use it as a teaching moment with your kids that that type of material is unacceptable by leaving the theater quickly. You could also use it as a moment to teach kids perspective and that everyone makes honest mistakes....rather than writing in to all the newspapers and calling your lawyer to get the lawsuit ready!

Dear Anonymous (if that's really your name),

Yes, the parents could have taken their little kids and just left the theater.....except they paid money expecting to see HSM3 and they didn't get what they paid for. The fact that they didn't leave doesn't mean they're stupid - it means they want to get what they paid for.

If you paid money to watch Sex Drive and HSM3 was shown instead, would you just get up and leave? I doubt it.....so give these parents a break.

Did you read the article at all? It said that the first few minutes of the movie showed nudity, and that the parents couldn't get their children out of the theatre before they were exposed. Do you sit on the edge of your seat at all times just waiting to rush your children out of the theater? Duh.

What a wonderful opportunity for parents to start early at making their children feel dirty and ashamed about the natural parts of life!

Just boycot the merchants of smut.

Why should decent people give their dollars to business that are polluting our culture?

Those poor children. This is the worst thing that could have possibly happened to them. I am going to boycott that theater! Thats all we need is the movie theaters pumping smut into our kids brains.

please

oh please

a law suit ? lets clog our courts with tripe, they don't have anything better to do

children are exposed to this type of stuff daily on TV and magazines, it's what sells everything

apologize, offer refunds and comp the movie tickets and stop being a bunch of whiney babies

Mom

I would have been VERY upset! Popcorn and tickets DO NOT MAKE UP for their mistake!

Normally I am opposed to lawsuits, but for this I would make an exception.
