A parents' guide to select new movies:
'Captain America: The First Avenger'
Rating: PG-13 for intense sequences of sci-fi violence and action
What it's about: A scrawny, patriotic chap is turned into a supersoldier to battle the Nazis.
The kid attractor factor: It's a comic-book adaptation, a period piece — and it stars the eternally cool Chris Evans, above.
Good lessons/bad lessons: "If you start running (from a fight), they never let you stop."
Violence: Quite a bit, with a smattering of blood
Language: Apparently, there was no cursing during World War II.
Sex: Some pretty serious come-ons from ladies in uniform.
Parents' advisory: More squeaky-clean than most comic-book adaptations; suitable for all ages.
'Friends With Benefits'
Rating: R for some violent content and brief sexuality
What it's about: A couple of attractive young careerists meet and try to fall into bed without falling in love.
The kid attractor factor: Justin Timberlake and Mila Kunis in a movie from the guy who did Easy A.
Good lessons/bad lessons: Fall in love with your best friend and the falling into bed part works itself out.
Violence: Lots of snowboarder threats, but none carried out
Language: Oodles of profane words profanely performed.
Sex: Don't you know it.
Drugs: Alcohol is consumed.
Parents' advisory: Not for anybody who doesn't know what the title means, or for anybody younger than 16, although it does a good job of deglamorizing Hollywood romances and movie love scenes.
