I haven't seen them and wouldn't plan on it they both sound stupid

 expecting boyMarch 2009. We already have a great toddler girl July 2006.

Don't complain about life if you're not willing to get off your ass and do something to change it.

I haven't seen either, but I am going to see Slumdog Millionaire this afternoon... I've heard nothing but incredible reviews and several of my friends have seen it and said its amazing.

Also, for date night or with the girls... Go see Gran Torino, awesome... So not what you are expecting.. Its great.

I haven't seen either of them but I have friends that have told me Notorious has a lot more violence in it since it's dealing with the death of Notorious B.I.G. They are both Rated "R" too so that's something to take into consideration with a 12 year old.

I haven't seen either..but both are rated R so IMO both would be inappropriate for a 12 year old

In my opinion I wouldn't let my kids see either at the age of 12. Just did some googling on Slumdog Millionaire, because I never heard of it and some words associated with it, torture, murder, tied to a chair, feces, covered in feces, electrocution...yeah, I don't think so. And I know Notorious will have language, sex and violence in it.

Wow- thats weird!  They have a family filmgoer review here in my local newspaper....said nothing about that....mostly just cussing, smoking & drinking.....

I saw Slumdog Millionaire and while it was good I would never allow a 12 year old to see it, hubby watched Notorious and once again he thought it was OK but with all the violence he would never allow our son (almost 12) to see either one.  They are both intended for far more mature audiences they are 'R' for a reason.

Slumdog did have some torture and some pretty scary stuff, children being threatened and abused as part of an Indian street gang, mentions of a sister trained to be a prostitute and later slashed-- you know the more I think about it the less I think it is appropriate for a child.  I mean, I know the picking are slim for kids movies right now but, wow, those are both awful choices for a 12 year old.

i dunno about the first one....but i dont think i would let him watch Notorious.  its based on Notorious B.I.G's life....so theres a whole lot of violence and such. unless you think he could handle that kind of thing....IMO
