First of all, the film is rated 14A. I'm not sure if I was aware that it was 14A before I went. I went to a showing of this movie at Ridge Theatre in Vancouver during Movies for Mommies, and the facebook page for this event said it was a "love story", so I didn't particularly search for the rating (I had trust in Movies for Mommies although I hadn't been yet). Alright, so I should have taken the rating as a warning. In writing this post, I also found out that in the US, this film is rated R. I no longer trust M4M.
Second of all, I am absolutely shocked that this is called a love story. This movie was IMO a hate story! I am very disappointed that I spent actual money on this movie!!! I do not think it was appropriate to show at a M4M showing. There were many swears, the F word being the most popular, and two very graphic sex scenes. There was a lot of general anger in this film - yelling, screaming - as well as obscenities, intoxication, and plenty of adultery.
I have been so looking forward to going to my first M4M, and was foiled in my last attempt due to the car being towed. Now, my chance to go had finally come and I braved the rain, spent the money, only to receive two hours of a lot of trash that I can get for free on TV - literally free, because the first three months of our TV service is free.
Also, I am very disappointed by The Mom Show, which I have enjoyed watching every other time on TV. That is, until yesterday when they had a repulsive conversation about pornography and how great it could be for your marriage. I am strongly against anyone taking part in any type of pornography, married or unmarried, watching it alone or with someone else.
It has not been a week that has given me hope in the world - it has definitely been the opposite.
Tonight Trevor and I are going on our first date without the LO - to the symphony. I doubt that the beautiful music of Bach and Haydn will disappoint! We are excited for a few hours away, but I know I will be so worried and missing my baby the entire time!
