May 26, 2011 

A parents' guide to select new movies:

'Bridesmaids'

Rating: R for some strong sexuality and language throughout

What it's about: A maid of honor goes into a funk when her best friend gets married.

The Kid Attractor Factor: Oh, you know they're sneaking into it just to hear the naughty talk.

Good lessons/bad lessons: You are how you view yourself and how you let others treat you.

Violence: None

Language: Pretty filthy

Sex: Yes, but without nudity

Drugs and alcohol: Cocktails, beer, prescription meds

Parents' advisory: The sex, profanity and toilet humor are inappropriate for anyone younger than high school age. Okay for 14 and older.'Kung Fu Panda 2'

Rating: PG for sequences of martial-arts action and mild violence

What it's about: The martial-arts panda sets out in search of "inner peace."

The Kid Attractor Factor: They loved the first one — and this 3-D cartoon offers more of the same.

Good lessons/bad lessons: "Anything is possible if you have inner peace."

Violence: Martial-arts slapstick, cannon fire

Language: Profanity-free

Sex: None

Drugs and alcohol: MSG-free

Parents' advisory: There's nothing here that would rattle even a toddler. Suitable for all ages.
