TROUBLE WITH THE CURVE
Rating: R for language, sexual references, some thematic material and smoking
What it's about: An aged baseball scout's reluctant daughter comes to help him through one final draft.
The kid-attractor factor: Clint Eastwood, plus Amy Adams and Justin Timberlake as the love interest.
Good lessons, bad lessons: "Don't be afraid to walk away" and "It's just a game."
Violence: Punches are thrown.
Language: Curses are thrown.
Sex: Justin is thrown at Amy.
Drugs: Alcohol and cigars
Parents advisory: A genial baseball comedy that meanders, rather like the game itself. Suitable for 10-and-up.
Rating: R for strong, bloody violence, language, drug use and some sexual content
What it's about: In a crowded, crime-riddled radioactive future, "judges" are armed and dangerous.
The kid-attractor factor: A comic book movie starring Karl Urban (Dr. McCoy from the "Star Trek" reboot) and Olivia Thirlby.
Good lessons, bad lessons: Investigate, file charges, prosecute, convict and shoot all in one easy package.
Violence: Almost nonstop
Language: Some profanity
Sex: Barely time for it, what with all the violence.
Parents advisory:Incredibly violent, graphically so and in slow motion to boot. Unsuitable for 15-and-under.
