I had a run in with a man one time at a children's movie.. Small Soldiers, if anyone remembers that one. We were sitting all the way up at the top and my son was on the very last seat. It was towards the end of the movie and he would stand up and sit down and stand up and sit down. Apparently this was bugging the crap out of an older man who thought he could come to a kids movie and watch it without anybody around him acting like a kid. He made comments and I made them right back and he ran way with his tail between his legs.
Seriously, if you don't want to be surrounded by kids, then don't go to a movie theater to watch a kids movie, wait for the DVD to come out and watch it in the peacefulness of your own home... and despite the fact that it is rated PG-13, Harry Potter 5 IS a kids movie.
I'm sorry for the rant but nothing burns me more than people assuming that I will insist that my young child will behave like a small adult just because we are in public. Kids are kids, not miniature adults.
