A parents' guide to select new movies:
'Puss in Boots'
Rating: PG for some adventure action and mild rude humor
What it's about: The dashing Puss in Boots teams with Humpty Dumpty to try to steal the beans so that they, too, can climb the beanstalk and steal the giant's riches.
Never miss a local story.
The Kid Attractor Factor: The funniest, most swashbuckling character from the Shrek movies gets his own showcase.
Good lessons/bad lessons: A friend who betrays you once will probably betray you again.
Violence: Cartoon catfights
Language: "Holy frijoles!"
Sex: The kitty wearing boots is a tomcat — aka a "playa."
Drugs and alcohol: One catnip-as-pot joke.
Parents' advisory: Suitable for all ages, with just enough edge so parents won't mind sitting through this one with the kids.
'Johnny English Reborn'
Rating: PG for mild action violence, rude humor, some language and brief sensuality
What it's about: Britain's klutziest secret agent is brought back into the Service to foil an international assassination plot.
The Kid Attractor Factor: Rowan Atkinson, Britain's answer to Jim Carrey
Good lessons/bad lessons: "With age comes wisdom."
Violence: Shootings, brawls, explosions — played for laughs
Language: Oh, the odd British oath
Sex: Kissing — or snogging, as the Brits say.
Drugs and alcohol: Alcohol is consumed.
Parents' advisory: Generally harmless "Mr. Bean Becomes a Spy" sequel, suitable for 8 and older.
