    Anyone seen this movie? I like 'end of civilization' movies so I was thinking of renting it cuz it sounded interesting. But if its just corny, I won't bother

    You might like that one, Myles.

    Orleander: it's not particularly corny. All the family values stuff has been moved underground. Along with most of the food. IIRC it's still Indiana, though.

    The dog's a telepath. He has taught the boy how to read.

    Screen before taking the kids.

    You'll probably like the young Don Johnson. It is a pretty low budget film, and it's a pretty cynical take on a post apocalyptic future. It's really more of a case of a dog and his boy, since the dog is the smarter of the two.

    That I might enjoy, if they have done away ith the usual tear jerking and soppy music.

    It's somewhere between "okay" and "shit". Smoke a lot of pot before you watch it.

    yeah I guess I agree with Tiassa...the so called post-apocalyptic puzzle doesn't fit well...

    Undeground there is this 1800's clothes people who like slay each other once in a while...and outside is a desert from a nuclear explosion...

    Oh , let them watch it, they can't be that upset over that one when there have been others allot worse than that released since it came out.

    and I haven't let them watch those either. My son cried so hard at Simon Birch (which I thought was supposed to be an uplifting movie) that I have learned to read reviews.
    Remember in Bambi when you hear a gunshot and then Bambi's plaintive little cry for him Mom? :bawl:

    Anyways, I guess I'll skip A Boy and His Dog. I'll wait for The Road.

    It is only a partial list, there's more of course but you wanted the "cute" ones.

    LOL, Old Yeller is cute?

    And thanks for the list. I think my daughter has seen most of them at daycare. I had completely forgotten the Benji movies.

    For a second I thought you'd rented A Boy and his Dog for your daughter. That was funny, but scary.




    It's a great movie but yeah, not for your kids.
