kids say the darnedest things: summer movie edition

Every year around this time, Los Angeles Times writer Patrick Goldstein rounds up a bunch of teenagers to gauge their interest in different summer movie trailers. It may be rather unscientific and silly, but I do find myself looking forward to hearing the teens' reactions.

The best comment this year has to go to Jasmine Jafari, 15, who had the following reaction to the trailer for Drag Me to Hell:
The crazy old lady, who keeps saying 'You're going to burn in hell,' reminded me of one of those nutty Proposition 8 people. She was really scary.
Accurate indication of how the next generation feels about gay marriage? We'll have to wait and see.
