Family reviews: 'Man on a Ledge'

A parents' guide to select new movies:

'Man on a Ledge'

Rating: PG-13 for violence and brief strong language

What it's about: A man unjustly imprisoned breaks out, climbs on a ledge and tries to prove his innocence.

The Kid Attractor Factor: It's a heist picture with touches of "caper comedy" about it, and it stars action hero Sam Worthington.

Good lessons/bad lessons: Sometimes, all it takes is one person to believe you for good to triumph over evil.

Violence: Shootouts, car chases, fisticuffs.

Language: Blasts of profanity, here and there.

Sex: Comically over the top cleavage.

Drugs and alcohol: Alcoholism is hinted, cigarettes are consumed.

Parents' advisory: Pretty tame content for an action picture, OK for 10 and older.
