BAD GRANDPA=HARMFUL (not clickbait!!)

Dear other families, Concerned human here responding to the review "BAD GRANDPA=HARMLESS". Went to watch this with my 12 year old daughter, thinking that the rating "12 and up" was a true representation of the film, however, I was sadly disapointed. The themes and motifs brought up in this movie are absolutely under no circumstances acceptable for people of ANY AGE (please disregard my 15+ ranking). The sorry excuse of a grandpa takes on many actions bordering if not crossing the line to sexual assault and the poor boy is forced to bear witness to these crude actions. Now let's talk budget. Where did the 15 million dollars go??! Certainly not to the sentimental plotline, respectful conversations, or general family fun. Overall, would give this a "do not watch". Best, Snailsnurch C.
