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.
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.
