What is wrong with you people??? These days kids get offered their first cigarette on average in 3rd grade!
Yes, Mickey Rooney's character is totally racist, but that is the ONLY problem with the movie. If you honestly think your child is going to want to become a call girl, alcoholic, or smoker, then fine, don't let them watch it.
This movie is FANTASTIC. It deals with some serious subject, but in a very mild manner.
I saw this movie when I was 11, and I was not at all naive, but I didn't quite get that Audrey was a call girl, it's so mild. And the sexual content is that 2.E. is cheating on her husband with Paul, which he breaks off, and we see him shirtless (which no one should be complaining about if your child has seen Twilight) once.
I have no clue what this "kissing/groping" person is talking about. There are about 2 kisses and groping is NOT involved unless you call putting your arms around someone groping.
At this time period people didn't really know how damaging smoking and drinking(excessively) were to your health.
Plus, it's JUST A MOVIE. If your kid wants their life to be like Holly's(which wasn't much until she loved Paul back) then they have problems that have nothing to do with the content of this movie.
It's your decision, but this movie is AMAZING.
