A parents' guide to select new movies:
Rating: PG-13 for some teen drug and alcohol use, sexual content, violence and language
What it's about: A new kid in town tries to get the adults to allow organized dancing, which was banned after teens died in a car accident years before.
The Kid Attractor Factor: Sexy young actors shaking their groove things, rebelling against grown-ups
Good lessons/bad lessons: You can't protect your kids from everything. You have to let them grow up.
Violence: A beat-down
Language: A smattering of profanity
Sex: Lots of bumping and grinding, on and off the dance floor
Drugs and alcohol: Cigarettes, beer
Parents' advisory: If they're old enough to have seen the original film on TV, this one won't hurt them. OK for 13 and older.
'The Big Year'
Rating: PG for language and some sensuality
What it's about: Three competitive bird-watchers set out to break the record for most bird species seen in North America in a year. Mayhem ensues.
The Kid Attractor Factor: Three kid-friendly comics chasing birds.
Good lessons/bad lessons: Step back and rethink your priorities, especially if you're putting bird-watching ahead of people.
Language: Birders have been known to curse when they miss a sighting.
Sex: A suggestion of an affair
Drugs and alcohol: Wine with dinner
Parents' advisory: The adult themes, sex and profanity make this best left to those 15 and older.
