A parents' guide to select new movies:
'Alice in Wonderland'
Rating: PG for fantasy action/violence involving scary images and situations
What it's about: An about-to-marry Alice falls back down the rabbit hole, where much has transpired since her first meeting with the Mad Hatter.
Never miss a local story.
The Kid Attractor Factor: Tim Burton, Johnny Depp, Alice in Wonderland in 3-D
Good lessons/bad lessons: "When in doubt, remain silent." "All the best people are ... bonkers."
Violence: "Off with their heads!" Scary images
Language: Disney clean
Drugs and alcohol: A smoking caterpillar
Parents' advisory: Not a literal Alice, so don't expect to do your book report based on it. But this Shrek-like 3-D spin on the tale is suitable for all ages.
