Matt Romney tweeted a photo Friday of the family outing with the note that “dad's finally getting a little R&R this wkend.”

"It was nice to be able to see a flick for the first time in a long time,” Romney told CNN on Monday. He noted that the movie’s PG-13 rating is appropriate, given the amount of child-on-child violence in the film.

He also revealed that he has read Suzanne Collins’s very popular young-adult trilogy.

Ellison used the themes in the film and book series to point out a fiction outcome of “extreme wealth disparities,” a topic with heavy partisan subtext on both sides of the aisle.

Regardless of political overtones, the movie swept the box office over the weekend.
