“Chinatown:” Family Movie

by F.

So I’m reading this biz book which, among other things, discusses the Philadelphia Eagles’ turnaround under Andy Reid. One thing Reid did to restore “pride” was have family movie nights:

The 200-seat auditorium (with oversized seats in front for football-sized bodies) had film nights for families every few months, such as a screening of Chinatown in December 2003.

Let me understand this. You show these kids a movie about a sick old dude (Noah Cross) who impregnates his daughter and then has her killed so he can hook-up with her daughter by him—his own granddaughter?

Seems like a great kids movie, especially around Christmas. I guess Blockbuster didn’t have any copies of Booty Call Reid could rent.
