Don’t take little ones to see filthy ‘Bosses 2’

Current films are reviewed each week to provide parents a guide to decide what may be appropriate to younger viewers

“Horrible Bosses 2”

Rating: R for strong crude sexual content and language throughout

What it’s about: The three losers from “Horrible Bosses” seek revenge on the ruthless businessman who stole their company from them.

The kid attractor factor: Inept criminals played by the screeching Charlie Day, the dopey Jason Sudeikis and the slow-burning Jason Bateman

Good lessons/bad lessons: Revenge never goes the way you plan.

Violence: Kidnapping, shooting, a murder

Language: Just filthy

Sex: Discussed, in all its kinky variations, thanks to Jennifer Aniston

Drugs: Alcohol

Parents’ advisory: Definition of bad parenting? Anybody who brings a child under 13 to this.

“Penguins of Madagascar”

Rating: PG for mild action and some rude humor

What it’s about: We see how those over-exposed commando-penguins from “Madagascar” first teamed up, and go with them on their most dangerous mission.

The kid attractor factor: It’s “Madagascar” stripped to its funniest characters.

Good lessons/bad lessons: “Looks don’t matter. It’s what you do that counts.”

Violence: Cartoon slapstick

Language: “Parker Posey!” is as dirty as it gets.

Sex: “ZOOmates! We were never mates. There was no mating!”

Drugs: None

Parents’ advisory: Skews younger, with jokes aimed at 8-and-below, with verbal humor intended for parents
