Howdy folks... Hans and I went back to Century Rio today for our 2nd viewing of ROTS at 7pm. We were totally stoked and ready to pick up on all the things we might have missed the first viewing when, of course, a woman and her two kids (ages four and ten) proceeded to make a HUGE racket through the whole first 45 minutes of the movie. The woman couldn't control her kids and every two seconds they would burst out in excitement. It's awesome that the kids were geeked for Star Wars but really, the show was full of adults who wanted to listen to the movie and they would not be quiet. The four year old was standing up and holding the back of the chair of the person in front of him, shaking it and blabbering in the peoples' ears. The two people in front of them kept asking them to stop and be quiet, but the lady either wouldn't or couldn't do anything about it. The longer the movie went on, the more aggravated we became so we decided we would just refund our tickets and go see it another time. In the scheme of things, I guess it's not really THAT big of a deal. But lots of people were complaining and were I the mom, I think I would have been embarassed and probably taken my kids during the day or something instead. I guess the reason I'm posting is a) I'm wondering if we were overreacting (it was a busy, stressful Sunday so that could have bled into it) and b) what else can you do in this sort of situation? We didn't want to be rude to the mom or anything, so we left...but was there another way? Maybe you parents out there can provide another perspective. Would you take your four year old to see ROTS? And what would YOU do if your child were causing such a disruption? I'm just curious Hope I haven't offended anyone who DOES have kids...I'm sure a lot of kids could probably watch the movie quietly with no problem but this one pair in particular was just ridiculous. Anyway, time to end the rant. Thanks!
