Sarah Jessica Parker is planning on taking her seven-year-old son, James Wilke Broderick, to see Shrek Forever After Sex and the City 2 when it opens next week. And no, not out of desperation because she couldn’t find a sitter.
The mom of three admits that she is excited to show James her work, and that he is at an age where his curiousity to see her films is such that she’s better off bringing him than expaining why she can’t. “If I can manage to take him out for popcorn for two certain moments, I think he’s ready for it,” Parker said. “I wouldn’t say this movie is for seven year olds, but we’ll find a way of figuring it out.”
I can understand her point. There is a giant billboard promoting the movie literally two blocks from her home in the West Village. Surely he’s seen it.
Moreover, when I was 7 or 8, I watched The Witches of Eastwick at a friend’s house during a slumber party. It didn’t turn me into a delinquent, so my gut feeling on this is that he’s going to be just fine. Bored, perhaps. But fine. Then again, my 3-year-old watches concert videos on MTV, so maybe I’m not the best judge on what makes for appropriate viewing material.
What do you think? Would you bring your 7-year-old son to see Carrie Bradshaw and the girls? How about your 13-year-old daughter? How old should a kid have to be in order to see Sex and the City?
