Ladies, please take your boyfriends to age-appropriate films

Last weekend I saw the lip-sync musical Romance and Cigarettes at a Cambridge movie theater, and when there was a close-up of Christopher Walken's rock-music-themed license plate, the guy behind me read it aloud: "BODIDDLY!" I'd like to point out to his girlfriend that the movie may have been too mature for someone who has recently learned how to recognize letters and words. It's quite understandable that he's so proud to figure out something as complicated as two words smooshed together that he has to shout out his accomplishment. But Romance and Cigarettes, with its swearing and frank sexual content, might be above his head. May I suggest Bee Movie?
