A parents' guide to select new movies:
'Toy Story 3'
What it's about: Buzz, Woody and the toys face abandonment as their little boy outgrows them.
Never miss a local story.
The Kid Attractor Factor: The Toy Story toys are back for more adventures in 3D.
Good lessons/bad lessons: Don't toss that toy you've outgrown; donate it.
Violence: Toddler toy abuse
Language: Disney clean
Sex: Ken and Barbie flirt, even though Ken is a little overly fond of his wardrobe.
Drugs and alcohol: None
Parents' advisory: A prison-escape movie, with toys escaping day care, this has a dark stretch near the end that could disturb younger children.
Rating: PG-13 for violent action, sexual material and language
What it's about: A wife realizes her husband used to be a CIA hit-man when a contract is put out on him.
The Kid Attractor Factor: Ashton Kutcher, Katherine Heigl, car chases and serio-comic violence
Good lessons/bad lessons: There are certain things you should tell your intended spouse before you get married.
Violence: Quite a bit
Language: Some profanity, not a lot
Sex: "Sexual material" entailing near-nudity and heavy breathing
Drugs and alcohol: Cigars and wine
Parents' advisory: The movie tends to trivialize and laugh at violence, but in a way that video game-age teens will get.
