Legend of Zorro

Parents' Guide

October 28, 2005|By ORLANDO SENTINEL

Rating: -- PG for sequences of violence/peril and action, language and a couple of suggestive moments.

What it's about: -- The Robin Hood of the Old West rides again and helps California join the Union.

Kid Attractor Factor: -- Action, and lots of it.

Good/bad lessons: -- Don't assume dad's a weenie just because he let mom run off with the bad guy.

Violence: -- Fancy swordplay and fistfights, because guns are for girlie men.

Language: -- Spanglish, with un poquito profanity.

Sex: -- Despite the lusty return of Catherine Zeta-Jones, no.

Drugs: -- Zorro drinks too much. And then he sobers up.

Parents' advisory: -- A real family action adventure, much like the last Zorro, only less surprising.
