"The Campaign" and R Movie Ratings

Hubby and I went to see "The Campaign" last night.  

Will Ferrell is one of my all time favorite actors.  I laugh just looking at him. His co-star is the hilarious and quirky Zack Galifianakis. Together, they kept us rolling!  The story is about the two of them acting like idiots while running against each other for Congress in a small town in North Carolina.  

Have you ever noticed that the majority of roles Will Ferrell plays involve being married to a beautiful, gold-digging, cold-hearted woman who leaves him when the going gets tough?  It's a bit Walt Disney with the female villain thing.

If you're easily offended by cursing, sexual innuendos and general inappropriateness, this isn't the movie for you.  But, I loved it and highly recommend it! It's hysterical!

Now, onto my ranting for the day.  The Campaign was given an R Rating due to "crude sexual content, language, and brief nudity."  There were actually 3 children in the audience who couldn't have been any older than 10.  They were there with their parents.  When Will dropped the F bomb 5 times and referred to sexual escapades with his mistress in the first 5 minutes, that should have been their cue to get up and leave.  Did they?  Nope.  It almost ruined my experience because I kept thinking about those poor, innocent children in the theater when anything inappropriate happened (which was pretty much the entire movie).  Ugh.  I wish I had a bad parenting citation to issue in situations like that!
