Parents guide for June 19 movies
'Year One'Rating: PG-13 for crude and sexual content throughout, brief strong language and comic violence.
What it's about: Hunter-gatherer losers travel the biblical world in search of knowledge and the women they love.
The kid attractor factor: Jack Black, Michael Cera, raunchy laughs, toilet humor.
Good lessons/bad lessons: "There's got to be more to life than hunting and gathering." And Sodom wasn't as much fun as it sounds in the Bible.
Violence: Attempted hunting, sword fights and beheadings.
Language: Quite a bit of profanity.
Sex: Suggested, imitated.
Drugs: Intoxicants are consumed.
Parents' advisory: Edited down to lose its R rating; hip kids will still get the gist of the off-color stuff — too raunchy for the very young.
'The Proposal'Rating: PG-13 for sexual content, nudity and language.
What it's about: A boss who needs a green card blackmails her assistant into pretending they're about to marry.
The kid attractor factor: Ryan Reynolds and Sandra Bullock pretty much naked.
Good lessons/bad lessons: Sexual harassment is only funny in the movies.
Language: A little profanity, here and there.
Sex: Nudity, with the naughtiest bits hidden.
Parents' advisory: More a date movie than one you take the kids to; dating teens might get a chuckle out of it.
