Alpha and Omega? No, I think this is just the end!

Ok, I have to admit it.  I enjoyed Alvin and the Chipmunks, The Squeakuel.  It was cute.  Very cute.  No profanity, no sexual innuendos, no crude jokes.  It was just cute.

Not so cute was the trailer we had to sit through for the upcoming movie Alpha and Omega. This is a 3D animated movie about two wolves (one is the alpha female of the pack and the other is the omega male) who are taken from their pack in the wilds of Canada and dropped off on a farm in Idaho.

The reason they are dropped off on the farm in Idaho?  So they can procreate.  In just 30 seconds on the trailer, there were a couple of sex jokes and a couple of other totally appropriate jokes. 

I do not consider myself prude.  And I wouldn't consider my children to be sheltered.  But do we have to watch a trailer that makes me - a grown woman-  uncomfortable right before watching sweet, cute, PG-rated Alvin and the Chipmunks?

Perhaps I am prude.  Any comments from anyone else who saw the trailer?

Sounds inappropriate to me.

You are NOT a prude. Sometimes those trailers are the worst part of the movie-going experience, becuase you never know what's going to pop up on screen. You can't rely on the fact that you are there to see a kid's movie to save you from inappropriate trailers. Plus, the line between appropriate and inappropriate is so blurred these days as to become nonexistent!

I thought the same thing. I thought it looked more like an adult cartoon in some ways. Even though my kids didn't catch the punch line

that is one movie that we WON'T be seeing!! i thought the same thing when i watched the trailer. the kids thought it was cute and never caught on to it, but there is no way that i would let them see it. it's sad that people have to ruin things for kids!
