Is ‘Hamilton’ Kid-Friendly?

Hamilton is the next great obsession to watch on Disney+ since The Mandalorian and The Clone Wars dropped and while families around the world will want to sit on the couch and intake the two and a half hours of diverse awesomeness I must provide a word of caution.

While Hamilton is a wonderful crash course on the history of our nation and should be watched by as many people as possible its PG-13 rating is pushed to the very brink with the play’s at times sketchy material.

Not only does the movie feature a lot of cursing such as heavy words like f***, sh**, etc but it does not stray from implied or blunt sexual references. And that doesn’t even include the specific risqué scene that features the moment Hamilton has an affair. As I watched the film for the first time I found myself slightly appalled by how raw the movie was in treating certain subjects and as someone who understands the importance of parent’s guides I’m going to be blunt. This movie, I believe, is not suitable for children under twelve years old.

Hamilton is not The Avengers even though both films bode a PG-13 rating. The Avengers is PG-13 because of the violence and mild cursing. But ultimately, it’s a fun family film whose material is very tame for children. Hamilton is anything but tame and its last twenty minutes are rather tragic, which could upset young ones as well.

Hamilton is written by an adult for adults. Teenagers can watch this movie and be inspired but I urge you, if you’re a parent, to sit down and watch it first to determine whether you want to share this with your child at the moment or give it to them when they’re a little older.

I thank you for reading and I hope you have a great day.

The Five Kid-Friendliest ‘Star Wars’ Movies

When George Lucas created Star Wars he was making a fantasy epic for children and it just so happened to be one of the greatest movies ever made that resonated with people of all ages. As the years have gone by some of the Star Wars films have continued to cater mostly towards the younger people of the world while some of the franchise’s installments have been a little more frightening than others.

Today I’m listing the five kid-friendliest Star Wars movies. Enjoy! 🙂

5. Attack of the Clones

Star Wars: Episode II Attack of the Clones

Attack of the Clones definitely isn’t a dark film and easily one of the most kid-friendly in the Star Wars franchise. (Take it from me. My sister and I used to watch this movie every day as children.) The only thing that could provide caution for younger children are the scenes with Anakin and Padme gallivanting around Naboo and pledging secret love to each other on the planet of Geonosis. Besides that though there isn’t anything scarier in this movie than Anakin talking about sand. Actually, that’s pretty scary. (Lol.) Continue reading The Five Kid-Friendliest ‘Star Wars’ Movies
