The Effect of Hollywood on Youth
“We have got to quit fooling around with this. I know this stuff sells, but that doesn’t make it right” (Clinton). Bill Clinton is right about this. Some movies have so much action in them that kids are becoming violent because they have watched too many bad movies. Some parents are even letting their little kids watch rated R movies, when they are supposed to be seventeen to watch them, even though they can teach you to do good things.

It makes me mad when people make it to be that way because it isn’t supposed to be like that. “Film is Art and Art is Influence” (Davis). This quote is very true movies do influence us in a way that maybe we don’t want to be influenced. There are a lot of people who think making these movies can even teach us not to do bad things, when they really truly are.
I think almost everyone could say they have spent a thousand dollars from going to movies. Movies are a way to make us spend money on films that could be a bad influence on our children. You could easily go to a movie and pay a hundred dollars every time you go. I don’t think that parents...
