A parents' guide to select new movies:
Rating: PG-13 for sexual content, partial nudity, language, some violence and substance abuse
What it's about: Girl meets boy in college and they flirt with the idea of becoming a couple — for decades.
The Kid Attractor Factor: Anne Hathaway in love.
Good lessons/bad lessons: Carry a torch too long, you'll get burned.
Language: Quite a bit of Brit-swearing
Drugs and alcohol: Drugs and alcohol are abused.
Parents' advisory: Not a romantic comedy, so it won't really appeal to those 13 and younger, but certainly suitable for 13 and older.
Rating: R for bloody horror violence and language, including some sexual references.
What it's about: A teenager notices classmates and neighbors disappearing. Could it be vampires?
The Kid Attractor Factor: Did I mention the vampires? None of these bedazzled ones with the big hair, either.
Good lessons/bad lessons: Don't ditch your nerd friends. They have all the answers.
Violence: Quite a bit and bloody, too
Language: Some profanity, crude sexual come-ons
Sex: Pursued, rejected, discussed with some Vegas stage-act skin.
Drugs and alcohol: One character appears to stay blitzed on absinthe.
Parents' advisory: The violence, in 3-D, is entirely too intense for small fry. OK for 14 and older.
