Is Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Appropriate For Kids?

Did Your Family See Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows?

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part I came out last week and features the former scrappy kid wizards battling evil as maturing teenagers (including one surprisingly buff Ron Weasley). And just like the book, this movie reflects the world that the characters are living in: dark, gloomy, and a bit scary. I thought it was one of the best movies in the series, but as an adult with no kids I started wondering how parents would react to the film. While the movie's tone didn't deter Sarah Jessica Parker and Matthew Broderick, who took their son to the film's New York premiere earlier last week, do parents think that it is appropriate for children?

The latest Harry Potter film is the third to be rated PG-13 (reasons include, among others, a naked fantasy kiss!). Similar to the Twilight series, the atmosphere of this latest installment — much like last year's Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince — is more mature than the first few, but at what age do you think it is okay for children to watch it? Did you see it with your family over the weekend?

yup - we went to see it and boy was the theater packed. i'm always surprised how many young kids go to see movies like that since i always think that they won't understand things but then i have to remember that kids are really savvy and smart.

I saw it with my sisters, and my husband will be seeing it soon. Our kiddos are too young, though, I will admit my nearly 3 year old loves harry potter. She gets excited when she sees the logo.
