    I worry it's another Blair Witch. I wasn't impressed with that one.

    Blair Witch was awful. This one doesn't look to be too much better in my opinion.

    All of my friends said that it wasn't scary until the last 30 minutes.

    selling them the tickets, them proceeding to escort them out for being too young without giving a refund....

    they should have just not sold them the tickets if they were too young

    can you see at what point i am pissed at the theater for?

    It sounds more like your sibling is clever, but not clever enough.

    or the teller didnt do their job

    my brother couldnt fake looking 17 if he tried and i bet he wasnt aware that you had to be 17 to see an r rated movie as usually he is with me or my other brothers who are well past 18 accompanying him. this time he was with a friend

    he just bought tickets and they didnt give him any trouble when they did

    they went in, were in the theater and were then spotted and escorted out and not given thier money back....essentially stealing from my brother at that point

    Yes, the cashier did not do their job. At any theater I have ever been to, they ask for your ID if you don't look 18 before you buy the tickets. I would call for their manager and take your stubs in there and tell them what happened. I'm sure they can work out a comped movie or something.

    it wasn't nearly as scary as it's hyped to be. i'm hoping that they put the original version on the dvd when it comes out. i want to see that one.

    What's the big deal? It's not like the law prevents people from seeing R rated movies. When it comes out on dvd, does anyone care this much?

    They shouldn't have gone to see the movie if they were too young. Consider the lack of a refund a fine for stupidity.

    The law? I hardly think we have laws regarding movie ratings. The theater should have refunded their money or allowed them to see another movie.

    The theater shouldn't have sold the kids a ticket. While they were right to kick them out of the movie, they should have refunded their money since they didn't sneak into the theater.

    Like Rapmastac1 said, take the stubs in and explain the situation to a manager. If they don't refund the money or give tickets to another movie, then I would tell your brother to find a new theater to go to.

    Except we do. Nationally you have to be 17 to see an R rated movie, in Salem, OR the age is 18.

    law would mean you could get a ticket and whatnot

    its more a matter of policy i would think, not law

    Yes, I'm sure every theater in all of Salem, OR just agreed to change their policy so you had to be 18 instead of 17 to see an R rated film. It's not the law or anything... :rolleyes:

    The rating system is just that, a system used by the MPAA. It is not a law.

    But there are laws that have to do with the rating system. I don't think you understand that the rating system doesn't decide the law, but there are laws decided on based on the rating system.

    if its the law, then you could face fines, punishment, etc for breaking it

    if its the law, then tv could not broadcast shows that are a certain age limit without verifying who is watching it

    its not law, its policy

    probably an agreement theaters have with the MPAA in order to show their movies

    :confused::confused:
    Dude. I spent my entire life in Salem. I remember when this LAW passed. What the **** are you talking about? It's not policy. Your logic has the worst fallacies. No, they would not have to verify who watches the broadcasts. That's why they edit movies.


    IT'S LAW

    Dude, I have lived in the US all my life and whatnot too!

    Fallacies? are you even using that word correctly? no you are not....I am not talking about editing movies, I am talking about tv shows that tell you the rating of the show before it airs

    It may be local law for Salem (which explains being 18), but by no means is it applicable everywhere

    Regardless, it is not the law where this happened:rolleyes:
