We are waiting for despicable me 2 to start and the people a couple rows behind us have an infant and a toddler and they are both screaming and crying. Hopefully it doesn't continue when the movie starts. But how fo you feel about kids this age in the theater. Does the crying bother you. Do you just ignore it.

If it conti use for more than2-3 minutes straight during the movie, I would go get an usher.

Infants don't bother me.  Mine just nursed and slept.

I imagine they'll settle soon, lol.  You're in a kids movie before it even starts, what did you expect?  Toddlers fuss until it starts, then they're generally all O.O or mama gives up and takes them home.

Infants are a no go for me.
Some people don't understand common courtesy though.

I think in a kids movie it is probably expected for louds kids but i hate when parents bring infants to R rated movies or when they bring babies to movies for older viewers after 7

that being said i don't bring my 9 month old to the movies

I took my son when he was 9 months old to see Cars. He loved it and still to this day it is his favorite. We went and saw Despicable Me Friday and there were a few babies and toddlers, they didn't bother me.

Bothers me.  Movie theaters are soooo loud I wouldn't subject my infant to that.

Drives me nuts. I'd never bring a baby to the movies- it's too loud.

 I wanted to take my boys (5&6) to see dm2 but I also have a 1 month old so we will just have to wait until it is on dvd. I don't want to ruin it for the rest watching the movie.

I figure the kids will settle once it starts. It isn't really bothering me especially right now. Just wish the movie would start. It is 30 minutes late.
