A parents' guide to select new movies:
Rating: PG-13 for language and sexual content
What it's about: Employees of a pricey apartment building lose their money to a Wall Street swindler-tenant there and seek revenge.
The Kid Attractor Factor: Family picture heroes Ben Stiller and Eddie Murphy in less kid-friendly roles
Good lessons/bad lessons: Yes, there is class warfare. And the rich started it.
Violence: Gunfire, threats
Language: Profanity in mass quantities, played for laughs.
Sex: An innuendo, quite crude
Drugs and alcohol: A little alcohol
Parents' advisory: The language should give pause to any parent of preteens. Suitable for 13 and older.
Rating: PG-13 for violence, some sexuality and partial nudity, and strong language
What it's about: In the future, time is currency, so the rich live forever and the poor die at 25.
The Kid Attractor Factor: Justin Timberlake, Amanda Seyfried, science fiction
Good lessons/bad lessons: Time is more valuable than money, so don't waste it.
Violence: Shootings, beatings, car crashes, blood
Language: Some profanity
Sex: None, despite the shockingly short hemlines of the future
Drugs and alcohol: Alcohol, and lots of it
Parents' advisory: Entry-level sci-fi, it's still a bit rough for 12-and-unders. Take the PG-13 seriously.
