What it's about: A middle-aged guy who married his pregnant girlfriend gets to go back to high school to see whether he can get his life right this time.
The kid attractor factor: Zac Efron, silly.
Good lessons/bad lessons: Safe sex can mean the difference between a happy life and wondering what might have been.
Violence: A bully beat-down.
Language: Half a dozen profanities.
Sex: Pregnancy is a subtext, and girls are always coming on to Efron's character, including his "daughter."
Parents' advisory: A very nice transition for kids who have outgrown High School Musical — fine for 14 and older.
Rating: PG for intense sequences of action/violence and brief mild language.
What it's about: Teen boy seeks magical dragonballs to save the Earth from a reign of terror.

Language: A single mild moment of profanity.
Sex: Cleavage and lots of it.
Parents' advisory: A benign martial-arts fantasy that will be a little hard to follow but is suitable for 8 and older.
