    If we couldn't swear around our kids I'm not sure our family would ever talk. Kids included. I take great pride in the crap my 14 year old daughter can drop when she wants to.

    Edit: yes, I am aware this makes me a terrible parent.

    Thanks
    I took my 8 y.o. and his friend to see it. The F-bombs are fairly few and far between. He hears far worse in the lift line at Brighton or at the skatepark.

    Dude. You're taking your kids to see a movie about a...oh never mind.
    They don't say fuckity fuckity fuck-fuck, but there's probably more than one fuck in the whole movie. It's also inferred that he screws his girlfriend in that van of his. He also parks the thing near the Tuolomne River.

    There was a little bit of cursing, IIRC, but it's not full of curse words. If you're truly a puritan, maybe it would be bothersome, but I don't recall much.

    The bigger issues (for me at least with my 7 year old) are that the subject matter deals a lot with relationships and with (potential) death. My usual go-to for this info, commonsensemedia.org, doesn't have it listed, but overall I don't think bad language should be the reason not to see it.

    Thanks all.
    Danno, glad to hear you, as I, consult CommonSense, unlike beece, raising his heathen offspring. J/k, but yeah, saw it wasnít listed.

    Anyway, itís now a non-issue. Showed the kid the trailer and she was terrified! Haha. Said she would think about dying. I said , sweety, you arenít gonna be climbing with no rope...
    Didnít matter. So will probably be Me Solo...which is fine, just gotta catch it in IMAX before itís gone...
    And I have zero interest in climbing myself. Weird. Actually watching valley uprising as I type.

    One of my good buddies is a critic for Common Sense. I'll pass along that a bunch of skiing dirt bags read the site. He'll be stoked.

    If I don't know squat about something she's watching or wants to watch, I use the site. Nice to know what to expect.

    Same here, zero interest. But Honnold's achievements at what he does have captivated me for years.

    Saw this on Friday.

    Surprised it won, but at the same time, the human achievement centered on in this film is really hard to comprehend. I sort of "get" RGBs story -- or at least I feel like I do.

    I don't get how you solo something like El Cap. And I've spend a lot more time climbing than I have in law. (Maybe thats why Honnold seems so much more far fetched.)

    The meta-ness of importance of filming the act I thought added to the drama.

    Also -- fuck anyone who thinks Sanni is just a wet blanket. She's asking the questions any person who cares about the continuation of life would. Honnold's choices are mind warping.

    Hope they find happiness. Really enjoyed the film.

    Best part of the film: the moment he sends the boulder problem. He's not serious at all -- gets a bit cheeky with the camera setup. Sure...just sent an crazy insecure sequence 2500' off the deck...I'll smile and laugh at the camera. Then climb Enduro corner.

    Such an intense movie, even knowing he made it I was still worried about a fall. The air under the Enduro Corner seemed unreal.
