Rated PG-13 for action and violence, drug content and some strong language.

What it’s about: A stuntman gets involved in a murder mystery while trying to save the movie directed by his estranged girlfriend.

The kid attractor factor: Big movie stars and even bigger stunts.

Good lessons/bad lessons: The truth will always come out. It's worth fighting for a second chance.

Violence: Some extreme stunt-based violence, fighting, shooting, explosions. Not too much gore or blood except a few cuts and bruises.

Language: Some swearing.

Sex: Kissing, but no graphic references to sex.

Drugs: A spiked drink leads to a drug trip.

Parents’ advisory: A bit mature and violent for kids. Probably best just for teens.




Rated PG-13 for violent content, some sexual material, thematic elements and teen smoking.

What it’s about: Two friends bond over decades over their shared obsession with a mysterious TV show.

The kid attractor factor: Deals with young adults but it's not for kids — too arty and experimental for young audiences.

Good lessons/bad lessons: It's never too late to embrace an identity.

Violence: Some grotesque, surreal sequences and scenes of peril but nothing too gory.

Language: Some swearing throughout.

Sex: References to sex and queer identity.

Drugs: References to drug use, smoking.

Parents’ advisory: Too mature and cerebral for kids. OK for teens.
