Apparently I'm getting old.

So tonight I took my 13 year old niece to see Twilight: Breaking Dawn. Side note: I've never seen a movie nor read a book from this whole Twilight saga prior to seeing the movie tonight. It doesn't take a genius to understand whats going on so I wasn't totally lost but I was a bit....shocked. Not even an hour into the movie...SEX. I'm not talking slight make out then the camera fades...I mean like back clawing, the next scene the room is messed up and she has bruises.
For goodness sake he broke the headboard! I'm pretty sure I had the "WTF?!" face going on. It made me pull out my ticket stub just to make sure my niece didn't con me into taking her to see something she shouldn't.

I found myself telling her "13 years ago when I was thirteen PG-13 movies were NOT like that!" (Okay maybe some of them were, but STILL!) When I got home I was reviewing our conversation hoping that the things I said registered with her...and I had to laugh at myself because I used the "when I was your age" line.

To make matters even worse, I was supposed to go to a club opening/friends birthday tonight but instead I am in my PJs and glasses sipping green tea and getting ready to crack open the first book, Twilight. I had to.

  1. ha- i feel the same way! pg 13 movies like that are crazy! i can only imagine what they're going to be like when I have kids! seriously. and its okay- im 21 and i NEVER go out out. i go out for ONE drink after work a couple times a week, but thats about it! im fairly boring :)

    sharde @ the style projects

  2. I thought it was geared toward teenagers but clearly that's not the case with the scene you described..let me know if it's a good read!!

  3. oh boy! i have seen them all and i've never thought sex ... i'm excited to see it. i still haven't cracked open the first book, still in my basement, but i just might!

    and yea, i'm getting old too, haha.

  4. LMBO..giiirrrllll, I would have reacted JUST like you. No lie, I haven't seen either movie in this series and my 13 yo niece is absolutely infactuated by the books, movies, characters. I'm too old for this mess. SMH
