    What did you think of it? Have you seen it will you see it? It is a great movie. I wouldn't suggest letting really young kids watch it. There is a lot of profanity.

    Took my 9 year old son to see it....didn't realize there was THAT much profanity, but by then there wasn't much I could do about it. I thought it was "ok'....I've seen much better out of the director, and out of Will Smith. I would give it a 'B" on the grading scale. I felt it needed some history, or background, but oh well, it killed a couple of hours! lol

    They don't use the "f" word, but a$$ is used alot, and generously sprinkled in are the others. Unless your child is completely sheltered, I don't guess its any more than they hear on tv or other movies, or in public for that matter.

    Actually they do use the the mother of all swear words once.
    They also use the term for a female dog a few times. Also in one seen half of Will Smith's buttocks is exposed.

    It was alright--effects were great, but the story was all fantasy and a little weak--kinda like the Golden Child--but it had its moments...good for a rainy day or to get free AC.

    I'snt that awful that words like that are becoming everday word for younger kids. I too am teenager, but I do not even think about using words like that.
