'Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2' opens at 12:01 a.m. Friday. How young is too young for a midnight showing?

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2, the last film in the seven-book and eight-movie saga starring everyone's favorite young wizard, premieres at 12:01 a.m. Friday at the Palladium.
