Parents guide to new movie releases:
ALL ABOUT STEVE
Rating: PG-13 for sexual content including innuendoes.
What it’s about: Socially inept single woman chases a guy who isn’t interested, but who is nice to her, across the country.
The kid attractor factor: Special-effects disasters, TV news mocked.
Good lessons/bad lessons: Stalking should be easier to spot than this.
Violence: A punch is thrown, mild peril in a mine shaft.
Language: Some profanity, not much.
Sex: Sandra Bullock hurls herself at Bradley Cooper.
Drugs: A joke about “sugar boogers.”
Parents’ advisory: There really isn’t much in this of interest to most kids, and the sexuality, though comical, can be racy.
Rating: R for language, sexual references and some drug use.
What it’s about: A sexually frustrated husband tries to get his wife to cheat, setting off a chain reaction of misunderstandings.
The kid attractor factor: Mike Judge’s band of comical doofuses fill the supporting cast.
Good lessons/bad lessons: Drinking and accepting pills from a pal? Not smart.
Violence: An industrial accident, not graphic.
Language: Quite a bit of profanity.
Sex: Mila Kunis co-stars. So, yes.
Drugs: Many cocktails, mixed with pills, and one epic bong hit.
Parents’ advisory: As juvenile as this sometimes is, it’s still not for 13-and-unders.
