Attention parents: do not take  FEB 19 2001

Attention parents: do not take your young children to R-rated movies. Movie theaters are not daycare centers. In the past week, I've been to two R-rated movies (Hannibal and Traffic) with young children present. In addition to being a disruption for your fellow patrons (nothing ruins drama like "Mommy, I wanna go home now"), it's probably not very good for your kids. Traffic wasn't all that bad, but the gore and violence in Hannibal just isn't something 5 year olds should be watching.

Traffic was excellent, easily the best film up for a Best Picture Oscar. Benico Del Toro completely deserves every award he gets; he's simply one of the 2 or 3 best actors working right now. I'd pay $10 to watch him read the phone book.
