Save the children - The International gets an X rating

The New York Times does a good job of reviewing The International - a new zeitgeist-tapping movie that portrays the nefarious activities of a fictitious international bank dubbed IBBC.

As the NYTimes reviewer wryly observes: "That multinational weapons manufacturers can be portrayed as more decent, civic-minded and principled than global financiers surely says something about the state of the world."

But the real punchline is in the footnote: “The International” is rated R (Under 17 requires accompanying parent or adult guardian). It has some swearing and a narrative that may undermine the faith of children in the global financial system."

Well, we wouldn't want the kids gettting the wrong idea would we?
