Family reviews: 'Whip It'

A parents' guide to select new movies:

'Whip It'

Rating: PG-13 for sexual content including crude dialogue, language and drug material.

What it's about: A Texas teen who doesn't fit in joins a roller derby team.

The Kid Attractor Factor: Cute Ellen Page, cute boys, high school rebellion and roller derby.

Good lessons/bad lessons: If at first you don't fit in, look around, "find your tribe."

Violence: It's roller derby. Blood is spilled.

Language: PG-13 profanity.

Sex: Dating, sexual situations.

Drugs and alcohol: "Drug material," including booze and cigarettes.

Parents' advisory: A teen movie in the Juno mold — smart, sassy, uplifting and, despite its cutting edge, wholesome.
