I just found this excellent article about annoying kids in movies. It's written in danish - but I'm bored, and decided to translate it and post it here.

I agree with everything this dude writes. Read and reply...

Annoying kids in movies

I like watching movies. I watch alot of movies. But unfortunately many movies are destroyed cuz of the use of these damn children. These so called "stars" always have to be the hero and the center of attention.

Not so long ago I saw Jurassic Park - Lost World Yeah, I know - crappy movie, but I was bored and hung over on a sunday. I had nothing better to do, I just wanted to chill. You can't help getting entertained watching this. There's good effects and alot of actions - but then this little stupid girl ruined it. This little girl decides to fight a freakin' dinosaur, using some of her various Bruce Lee moves. It was horrible! Why is it that these little annoying ignorant kids always gotta be the hero, running around saving grown-ups who are all well educated and probably alot smarter than these piss-ants kids? Get those freakin' kids out of the movies damn it!

I don't know when it all started, but I'd like to strangle the idiot who got this idea. The kid "stars" are all over the place... Signs, Jurassic Park, Home Alone, Starwars Episode 1... etc, these are all examples of movies with annoying little kids who steals all the attention.

It's not only annoying, it's also screwing up normal innocent kids. They're being served a unrealistic picture of reality. "Mom, I'm of to kill some terrorists with my water-gun" ... great little Billy, you'll probably succeed at that... or not! The kids are left with the impression that anything is possible, but it's not!

These kids are often starring in movies, that is not even made for children. What do grown-ups get from wathing stupid and ugly kids cathing bad guys, while 4000 police men and FBI agents are just standing by? The kids doesn't belong in action movies, put them in a commercial for car-sick-pills or something.

"But... they're so cute!" Not they're not! Kids are not cute when they're being all heroic and saving all of humanity from dying. It's been taken to damn far and it wouldn't amaze me if someone made a movie about a kid winning the nobel price for inventing a new way to fight with your pokemons and whatever.

American TV shows are full of these kids. You can't even turn on the freakin' TV without one of these brats playing the know-it-all professor type who always does the right thing. Why aren't these kids in school? They're stealing all the jobs from real actors.

I'm not saying that no kid should ever be in a movie. Just give them more realistic roles... let them play with something or whatever.

there are many kid-actors who are famous just until they reach 16 ... and then drugs and fame come, and they are forgotten
the best example : makaulay kulkin (spelling ?)
anyway, there are many cute and adorable child actors, so ...

actually, he went out of the spot light because of family problems. his parents got devorced. Then, each one of his parents wanted to take part of the millions of dollars that he earned with them (money was also the reason of their devorce). the money wasn't supposed to be touched till he was 18. so, he devorced them!!!!

no... not always.

But I'd rather see a grown man fight a dinosaur and eventually getting killed by it, than seeing some little girl kick it's ass... if you know what I'm saying.

i haven't said he was bad, au contraire ;)

i liked the young anakin skywalker from the star wars - the phantom menace (i guess, not a big fan) and the little girl named makenzie rosman ( from a sitcom)

I heard many young actors died from an overdose.

I was a big "Saved by the Bell" fan when I was like 10-12 so. I hear Zack Morris (Mark-Paul Gosslear :spelling: ) died because of an overdose. Turned out to be just a rumour.

Hey, watching Saved by the Bell now, I think the show is just gay. I can't believe I used to watch that every day, 4 episodes straight.
