INSIDIOUS: CHAPTER 3
Rating: PG-13 for violence, frightening images, some language and thematic elements
What it’s about: A teen who misses her dead mother invites trouble when she tries to contact her spirit.
The kid attractor factor: A cute teen menaced by a demon, a fearsome little old lady who comes to her defense, ghosts and the like
Good lessons/bad lessons: Do not try and contact the dead, because you never know who might pick up.
Violence: Of the bloody and bruising and potentially fatal supernatural variety
Language: A little profanity, hurled for comic effect
Parents’ advisory: Too scary for the very young, but a haunted house tale suitable for 10-and-up
Rating: R for pervasive language, strong sexual content, nudity and some drug use
What it’s about: A rising star in Hollywood drags his two pals and less talented brother along with him as he experiences the professional and sexual ups and downs of showbiz.
The kid attractor factor: Scads of star cameos, young and old – Adrian Grenier, 30-something men acting like oversexed teenagers
Good lessons/bad lessons: Fame, riches and stardom are only fun if you can share them with your friends.
Language: Profane and sexual
Sex: Nothing terribly explicit
Parents’ advisory: Sexual, comically profane with a hint of drugs, and a comedy that suggests that women in Hollywood are little more than eye candy – OK for 15-and-up.
