    Not too sure what they're saying here: The film should have been targeted at two year olds otherwise the toy campaign isn't fair? Then we really would have had "it's just a toy commercial" complaints.

    Star Wars Episode III was really dark and had a bit of a body count, so what do they have to say about those toys??

    For crying out loud. People will find the dumbest stuff to complain about. Hasn't the merchandise for all the Spiderman movies (also PG-13) been aimed at the same age group? I know my almost 2 year old son has some baby friendly Spidey stuff.

    It's not like they are marketing smokes, booze or porn.

    Here is my take. If I don't want my kid to see a movie. I don't take them. My 4 year old daughter wants to see the movie and I won't decide until after I see it. If I decide it is too much for her. She won't see it. Period. Why can't people parent their own kids rather than expect the media to cater to what they think is right?

    Idiots.

    OH MY GOD!

    Those are the same asses that wanted to sue cereal companies for using cartoon characters to sell sugary cereals!

    ....I think we should make our own lobby group to tell the government not to listen to groups as dumb as them. If you don't want your kid to do something, as a parent you *don't let them do it*. A 2 year old is not going to go to a movie theater on their own and watch a movie, they can only do it if a parent or gaurdian takes them. So if your 2 year old sees a commecial and wants to watch the movie you just say "No". Simple as that.

    Special interest groups suck.

    FOR FUCKS SAKE!!!

    If the hypersensitive soccer moms don't like it then they don't need to take their fucking kids to it.

    Problem freakin solved.

    It's amazing that people let morons like this parent their children.
    And why transformers? why wasn't there any bitchin about the Spiderman movies and Starwars as stated earlier in the thread.

    I say, when the movie comes out on DVD show it to your kid if he/she want to see it so badly and when the kid is all freaked out just say: Well you wanted to see it in the first place :p

    I skimmed over their website, but the sheer stupidity of that place made it difficult to stay there long enough to actually find an address to voice my concerns about their beliefs.

    I'll try again later, but WOW that place is full of whine, bitch and moan. Seriously, it's not up to the government, toy companies and cereal makers to raise your kid, that's the parents job. And good parents can say no to their kids.
