Family reviews: 'Alice in Wonderland'

A parents' guide to select new movies:

'Alice in Wonderland'

Rating: PG for fantasy action/violence involving scary images and situations

What it's about: An about-to-marry Alice falls back down the rabbit hole, where much has transpired since her first meeting with the Mad Hatter.

The Kid Attractor Factor: Tim Burton, Johnny Depp, Alice in Wonderland in 3-D

Good lessons/bad lessons: "When in doubt, remain silent." "All the best people are ... bonkers."

Violence: "Off with their heads!" Scary images

Language: Disney clean

Sex: None

Drugs and alcohol: A smoking caterpillar

Parents' advisory: Not a literal Alice, so don't expect to do your book report based on it. But this Shrek-like 3-D spin on the tale is suitable for all ages.
