Outrage over movie synopsis

I am highly NOT recommending this movie. If you have not seen and think you might want to see the movie The Kids are All Right, DON'T!

Here is what i read about the movie:
Academy Award® nominees Annette Bening and Julianne Moore star in this funny, smart and vibrant portrait of a modern American family. Nic (Bening) and Jules (Moore) are your average suburban couple raising their two teens, Joni (Mia Wasikowska) and Laser (Josh Hutcherson), in Southern California. But when the kids secretly track down their “donor dad,” Paul (Mark Ruffalo), an unexpected new chapter begins for everyone as family ties are defined, re-defined and then re-re-defined. Fall in love with the big-hearted comedy that critics are calling “one of the best films of the year!”(Michael Phillips, At the Movies)

No where in here does it mention seeing one man stick his unmentionable in some other man rear unmentionable. Oh no, not just the illusion that that is what is happening. you actually SEE IT!!!! Um, now, I DO NOT have anything against homosexuality. I do have a problem with it being in a movie and not being prepared for it. There is also blatant female on female intercourse and male on female intercourse. The movie is rated R for strong sexual content, nudity, language and some teen drug and alcohol use. Now, i have watched Sideways that has the same rating for the same reason and there was nothing at all that graphic in it.

My issue is not with the acts (yes there were more than one and I only got through the first 15-20 minutes of it) of homosexual sex, it was the graphic SEX period.

I had originally intended to watch this movie at home with my family, but it was in my purse and it was slow at work so we put it on.....OMG, soooooooo NOT ok. The one thing I am happy for is at least my son didn't see it.

Rating folks, please pay more attention and rate accordingly! Thank you.
