Movie News & Reviews

Family reviews: ‘Bride Wars,' ‘Not Easily Broken'

A parents' guide to select new movies:

‘Bride Wars'

Rating: PG for suggestive content, language and some rude behavior.

What it's about: Best friends become dueling brides when they both book the wedding they've always dreamed of in the same place on the same day.

The Kid Attractor Factor: Anne Hathaway and Kate Hudson co-star.

Good lessons/bad lessons: Don't let your dream wedding take over your life.

Violence: A little bride wrestling.

Language: Surprisingly restrained, just a smidgen of mild profanity.

Sex: A visit to a strip club with a little bumping and grinding.

Drugs: Budweisers and tequila shots all around!

Parents' advisory: Like 27 Dresses, without the profanity. Child mild.

‘Not Easily Broken'

Rating: PG-13 for sexual references and thematic elements.

What it's about: A married couple face stresses and temptations when the marriage hits the wall.

The Kid Attractor Factor: Not much of one, although Morris Chestnut is a matinee idol

Good lessons/bad lessons: When a marriage is in trouble, it's the job of the family, the church and friends to help mend it.

Violence: A car accident.

Language: Quite clean for PG-13.

Sex: The threat of infidelity, a few frank discussions.

Drugs: None.

Parents' advisory: It was written by a preacher, so it's about as edgy as a Sunday sermon. Tame.
