John Carter is Rated PG-13 for intense sequences of violence and action. So far, on IMDb, it is receiving a rating of 6.8 out of 10.
IMDb's description: Transplanted to Mars, a Civil War vet discovers a lush planet inhabited by 12-foot tall barbarians. Finding himself a prisoner of these creatures, he escapes, only to encounter a princess who is in desperate need of a savior.
Salmon Fishing in the Yemen, starring Emily Blunt and Ewan McGregor, is Rated PG-13 for some violence and sexual content, and brief language. I saw the trailer for this movie and it looks like a movie I would really enjoy, but not sure kids will find it entertaining. IMDb's current rates at 7.2 out of 10. I plan to see this one and review for Flixy Mom readers.
IMDb's description: A fisheries expert is approached by a consultant to help realize a sheik's vision of bringing the sport of fly-fishing to the desert and embarks on an upstream journey of faith and fish to prove the impossible possible.
Thousand Words, Starring Eddie Murphy, is Rated PG-13 for sexual situations including dialogue, language and some drug-related humor. So far, this one isn't faring well in early reviews.
IMDb's Description: After stretching the truth on a deal with a spiritual guru, literary agent Jack McCall finds a Bodhi tree on his property. Its appearance holds a valuable lesson on the consequences of every word we speak.
Friends with Kids, starring Kristin Wiig, John Hamm, and Adam Scott (among others), is Rated R for sexual content and language. IMDb reviews are coming in at 6.2 out of 10. I love this cast, but this is definitely an adult-night-out kind of movie. Leave the kids at home!
IMDb's Description: Two best friends decide to have a child together while keeping their relationship platonic, so they can avoid the toll kids can take on romantic relationships.
