It all started with an assistant in a bookshop. she recommended the series to Miss K who was wandering about clutching a birthday book voucher.
I should have known better than to say ok to a book called Angus, thongs and full frontal snogging. The snogging bit really should have warned me. Miss K was thrilled, "all my friends are reading them, they laugh out loud in lessons"
Miss K comes home, reads several of the books, pronounces them very funny.
Fast forward two weeks and Father Christmas in a fit of needing something a little extra for a stocking saw the DVD of Angus, Thongs and perfect snogging and thought Miss K will like that.
Fast forward again to last Saturday night, where DVD is selected as part of a special Saturday night, movie and tv dinner treat.
DVD is rated a 12. Miss K is now 12. E is 10. I read the box. moderate language. no signs of gratuitous violence. I ok it. (choosing suitable films might be a whole other post - it's a mine field....)
me; I have a nearly teenager. I was quite worried about it. Now I am very worried about it.
J; he laughed a lot, especially at the bits where the parents embarrassed their daughter.
E; pronounces it gross, especially the snogging. "that film was disgusting"
Miss K; runs out into the hall a lot squirming. perhaps it's a movie to watch with your friends not your parents!
my fave quote - "if you haven't noticed I'm a woman now, I wear a bra"
next movie night I decline film choice responsibility....
