You know - V for violence, L for language, S for sex, D for drugs.
We once saw a show that had a few of these and they really, really emphasized that viewers may be disturbed. It was a comedy and for the first 10 minutes was hilarious - we couldn't see what the fuss was.
Unfortunately then we saw the skit that generated the ominous disturbed warning.
That was when I started taking the television's advice.
After last night, I seriously think they should contemplate a few extra.
Ones like "Warning: The following film will suck you in and take away 3 hours of your life."
Or perhaps "Logical Guidance Advice - if you are choosing between watching the end and going to bed, go to bed."
How about "PE: This movie has a pathetic ending."
Even "75/25 - 75% of this movie is promising. Chose bed 40 minutes before the end."
When I was a child, the local commercial station had an ad to tell children to go to bed at 7.30:
and now is the time, girls and boys, to do you teeth, kiss Mummy and Daddy good night and go to bed. Good night.
We could really have done with an ad saying:
and now is the time, ladies and gentlemen, to do you teeth, switch off the idiot box and go to bed. Good night.at about midnight.
Can you sue a movie for starting well, generating laughs, having great characters and a half-decent storyline and then throwing them all away and turning into a dog?
What do you think? Could we form a movement here?
