    Nudity in movies

    Advertisements
    Anyone seen Ronja Robbersdaughter? It came out in 84 here in the States (according to yahoo search) but I LOOOVED that movie as a kid! Anyway, I was watching it the other day and DH came in later. When he walked in the scene showed 12 grown naked men running through the snow. And it showed everything. There are also a couple scenes with the 11 year old heroine of the movie skinny dipping. I tried to see if the movie has a rating but couldn't find anything. The scene might have been edited out in the US version. Would you let your kids watch this movie?

    I don't know. I'd let my kids watch Schindler's List, and they show nudity, but it was about the holocaust. I don't know if we'd all sit around and watch a movie with naked men unless it was like a documentary. I just don't think it's necessary. If it came up in a movie we hadn't seen before though, I wouldn't be appalled and turn it off, unless it was actual sex, or really prolonged nudity.

    I was actually offended at the amount of violence in the Golden Compass. My daughter has a harder time understanding that. But nudity she is totally cool with lol. The nudity doesn't bother me unless it is sexual. I have a bigger problem with senseless violence.
    It's Halloween so.... you know, BOO!

    I pretty much agree. I watch a lot of British and European films they tend to have random nude scenes (aka non sexual nudity) So depending on what the film was about I might not care. I know British comedies that depict nude scenes are a LOT different then American movies. For example take Saving Grace (or Calender Girls) VS American Pie (or Super Bad) both have nudity but it is a completely different class of film. The two British ones I might have on while Darian is playing and not watching but if he happened to see the movie no big deal. No way could he watch American pie (or Super Bad).

    Although we do like science fiction/fantasy films such as Star Wars, (in our home it is Star whores because Darian mispronounces Wars), Lord of The Rings, Peter Potter (thats what Darian calls him LOL), Narnia, etc.

    So I guess to us nudity is not in and of itself automatically a bad thing. I like my kids to know that their body and a females body are not shameful. That they are also not taboo. That the human body has a purpose and it is a beautiful thing. Being comfortable in your skin is a very important lesson for a kid to learn just as being comfortable with who you are on the inside is.

    hmm, i'm not sure. honestly, i personally don't have a problem w/ nudity. i think my son, who is 8, would be embarrassed. it is nothing i taught him, he is just at that age. i wouldn't watch anything that made him uncomfortable.

    i also watch any move that is PG-13 before he can watch it. rated R is a no-no!
