CNN's Wolf Blitzer grilled GOP candidate Mitt Romney on a number of pressing issues on Monday. One of those urgent matters was the much-anticipated release of "The Hunger Games" movie.
The film adaptation of the bestselling trilogy opened to huge numbers over the weekend. Romney spent a day off taking his grandkids to the movie.
On Monday, Blitzer wondered if that was a wise choice. Romney told the CNN host that he "enjoyed" the movie. "Nice to be able to see a flick, first time in a long time," he remarked. He said that he had also read the books, which he described as "a weekend fun."
Blitzer brought up a picture that Romney son's Matt had tweeted of the GOP candidate with his family, and asked Romney to defend his decision to take his grandkids to the movie. "It's PG-13. Is it a little too violent for young kids?" he wanted to know.
"I think it's a little disturbing for young kids," Romney replied. "I think that PG-13 is an appropriate indication of the seriousness of the film. But I'm over 13 now."
"But you went with young kids, right?" Blitzer pressed.
"Just about that age," Romney responded.
