This movie, while very good, is not appropriate as a family movie, certainly not for 12 year olds as indicated.

Maybe that's the reason kids say such bad words and act inappropriately with the opposite sex at such young ages anymore, because too many parents let their kids watch movies like this and think it's OK.

Not sure how it got a CSM Family approved stamp.

With words like p---y and a--hat I'm not sure how this gets a CSM "Great for families" stamp of approval. Maybe some families don't believe in modesty or clean language, but I would certainly not give a movie like this a "GFF" stamp with such language. Certainly not for a 12 year old. It's a slippery slope to say "what is in movies now is more acceptable than in the past." By the time the current 12 year olds have kids should we expect a "GFF" stamp on a movie containing topless women and sexual harassment from men? I would argue that CSM's family stamp isn't worth the pixels its painted with. It's a PG-13 movie. Why would CSM rate it 12+?
