A parents' guide to select new movies:

What it's about: Robotic rag dolls struggle to "survive" on a post-apocalyptic planet where humanity has perished.

The Kid Attractor Factor: Animated rag dolls, science fiction and the voice of Elijah Wood.

Good lessons/bad lessons: Everyone, no matter how new or inexperienced, has something to contribute.

Violence: Rag dolls suffer and die.

Language: Clean.

Sex: None.

Drugs: None.

Parents' advisory: More adult in message and theme than a children's cartoon, this is closer to anime — animation for 13-and-ups.
