Being famous doesn't always open doors E-mail

I've never really thought about this before, but there are many R-rated films containing actors who aren't old enough to go see the film without supervision.

The Boston Globe reported that Aaron Wolff, Danny Gopnik in A Serious Man, wasn't allowed to go see himself on the silver screen when he and a group of friends went to their local theater.  Turns out Aaron is only 15 and the theater stood by the standard policy of a legal guardian needing to be present if you're under the age of 17.  That's a bummer man.

Aaron's mom came down to escort him and his friends, but the theater wouldn't allow the gang in because Mrs. Kogan wasn't the legal guardian of the other boys.  I understand why the rule is in place and feel it needs to be upheld, but seriously?  You star in a Coen film and can't even purchase a ticket to see it?  That just doesn't seem right.

    If I ever heard it...

    Well, yeah, man, but can we really expect those Twilight-obsessed teens working the ticket counter to recognize "real actors" that appear in these wonderful, limited-release art films that you and I love so much Timmah?

  • TIMMAH  - Indeed.

    I myself dabbled in teen movies once... not vampire movies, of course...

    While John Hughes is described as the seminal teen movie creator, I don't think his work really counts as a "teen movie" if it's being tossed in with the likes of Twilight, Scary Movie and High School Musical....buncha amateurs.
