Family reviews: ‘Inkheart'

A parents' guide to select new movies:


Rating: PG for fantasy adventure action, some scary moments and brief language.

What it's about: A girl and her dad flee literary villains because when Dad reads a story aloud, books come alive.

The Kid Attractor Factor: Fantasy, monsters, adventure, special effects.

Good lessons/bad lessons: The written word is a powerful thing.

Violence: Threats, fisticuffs, guns wielded with menace.

Language: A single D-word.

Sex: Nary a hint.

Drugs: None.

Parents' advisory: Entirely too wordy and scary for the very young; fine for 10 and older.
