On virgin media catchup service we have to enter a pin number to watch Gavin and Stacey episodes and yet the kids can freely watch Family Guy, Two Pints, Coming of Age and other strong adult themed material. Pointless!

Sorry, but it appears to me that you do. Then again, I don't usually respond well to people who use children as props for their own insecurities. "Think of the children!" is a rallying cry that makes me want to whap people upside the head,m so maybe I'm just having something of a biased reaction to your, uh, concern.

This post is part of what I hate about society as a whole.
Does no one describe the difference between real and make-believe any more? I don't ever recall the moment i learned between the two, but I definitely have a distinction, which I don't think people are getting taught or it being ingrained into life's lessons.
Movies are make believe and even most children know the difference. Why don't you?
When children are in movies with adult content, it's because they are ACTING. There's nothing I see in movies that is worse than anything I might see on the news at 6 or 10pm.
In any case, sheltering children from the rest of the world is just going to make this world that much more harsh when they finally get out into it.

it's the movies, camera angles, edits, voice overs, cgi,
if the op was upset then the film makers got their point across.
if that was the point of the film.
i never saw it.

The sooner you teach your kids that they are screwed because everybody screwed up, the better off your kids will be and the less they will resent you for telling them that the world is great.
On top of that, they might actually enjoy a fictional movie without being worried about Eric Stoltz making a kiddy porn film about them.
Reality needs to be presented. Kids should be proud to take on a role that throws this subject into the open. And their parents should be supportive.

I think it's far more disturbing to see little babies or toddlers in the arms of a "parent" while they act out a domestic argument. That always upsets me, especially when the baby starts screaming in distress. More often to be seen in soaps than movies. I'm sure that fright ( no matter how short the take is,) can have an effect on their progress.

Now if a person at home set up a camera and said, "right kids, we are making a movie so take off your clothes or play a game" THAT IS AGAINST THE LAW!!! and yet here we see MOVIE Producers do the same thing and we don't see a problem with it???
Why weren't they arrested????
