There are some other pics of them conversing sociably with Harvey so as I'd expect, Zac knows how to play nice with the dude who sends papz after him.

Mood: awakeawake

Eeee, yeah, that wouldn't fly for me and the kiddo. I actually don't mind fighting/action in a film as long as it is bloodless or nearly so, because he's old enough to understand that's not how we handle conflict and that it's all for comedy or effect (he is nearly 12... lol I had him pretty young). However, at his age I think he's far more likely to internalize teenage representations of behavior/sexuality/ etc. and he actually doesn't like things with a lot of swearing. Also I think the main gist of the movie, that even a life filled with compromises and regrets is worth living and improving upon and that giving in to discouragement can be self-sabotaging, would be totally lost on an 11yo boy. And none of my friends IRL want to see it either, wah. lol. I've decided I'm going to talk my mom into taking the Shorty to see the Hannah Montana movie while I see 17 Again in another theater at the same time. I have childcare AND I don't have to see HM! Win-win!

i think shorty has a crush on miley. :[ lol she's very cute and frankly it's inevitable, her presence permeates children's media so thoroughly.

shorty likes hsm too (not as much as i do, admittedly) though he has perceived that although part of the message of the film is that it's okay for boys to like musicals, ALL of the merchandising and promotion was geared for girls and we are very much in the EW THAT'S FOR GIRLS stage of things, so he has shied away from hsm quite a bit. a year or so ago he wanted a t-shirt of hsm2 and we couldn't find a single one that wasn't pink and sparkly - and this is south florida with disney everywhere. i had to buy a plain ehs wildcats black t-shirt for him off eBay. :x
