    Default R-Rated Movie Plays In Wrong Theater

    Young moviegoers expecting to see a PG-rated film last night at a Holtsville theater instead watched in shock as a chained, naked woman gave birth to a dead baby on the screen.

    About 50 parents and children were in Theater 11 at the Island 16 multiplex for the 8 p.m. showing of the PG-rated "The Last Mimzy," when the opening scene of the R-rated "The Hills Have Eyes 2" appeared without warning before the film's opening credits.

    "There was no intro," said John Nasta, 42, of East Islip. "It was horrifying."

    His daughter, Nicole, 11, described the scene as "sick -- very sick."

    "She said, 'I'm never getting married,'" John Nasta said last night at the theater.

    Frank Doll, 31, of Mastic, said his children started screaming when they saw the torture scene.

    "It just freaked me out and it was gross," said his daughter, Jaida Doll, 9, who was there with her brother, Frankie, 3.

    When the scene appeared, Stephanie Toledo, also 3, asked her father: "What's happening, dad? Why is she like that?"

    "There's no words," said her father, Carlos Toledo, 44, of Islandia.

    Nasta said the previews also were not child-friendly but, "everyone disregarded that as poor taste."

    Nasta said he ushered his daughter out of the theater. Other parents ran out to tell Island 16 staff, some screaming at a manager. Theater staff stopped the film after about 10 minutes, gave customers two free movie vouchers and started "The Last Mimzy" about a half-hour late, parents said. An Island 16 manager declined to comment. "The Hills Have Eyes 2," a horror movie about National Guard trainees who battle a vicious group of mutants, was scheduled to play in that theater at 10:25 p.m.

    One of the EMT-Ps on my old department is also a lawyer.He doesn't have to chase ambulances when he's already in it.

    But that would be unethi...oh, wait, he's a lawyer.

    =========
    So a lawyer has an ethical dilema.

    A client came in, received half an hour of advice, and paid the $100 fee with a crisp new, $100 bill.

    As the client is walking out the door, the lawyer noticed it was actually two crisp new $100 bills stuck together.

    Should he tell his partner?

    I can see how they would screw up putting The Last Mimzy on the screen and The Hills Have Eyes 2. I mean they both have The in the name.
    If someone with multiple personalities threatens to kill himself, is it considered a hostage situation?

    I wish that would have happened to me several years back when I was dragged to see "Sleepless in Seattle".
