`Spider-Man 3'

Rating -- PG-13 for sequences of intense action violence.

What it's about -- Spider-Man faces multiple villains and his own dark side in this finale to the Spidey trilogy.

The Kid Attractor Factor -- Comic book heroes, villains and special effects fights.

Good lessons/bad lessons -- It's never a good idea to try and make a girlfriend-boyfriend jealous.

Violence -- Quite a bit.

Language -- Quite clean.

Sex -- As chaste as the day is long.

Drugs -- None.

Parents' advisory -- A bit grimmer than the earlier Spider-Man movies, a bit long. But harmless.

`Lucky You'

Rating -- PG-13 for some language and sexual humor.

What it's about -- Personal problems distract a top poker player at the big tournament.

The Kid Attractor Factor -- Drew Barrymore, Eric Bana, and lots of Texas Hold'em.

Good lessons/bad lessons -- You've got to know when to hold'em, know when to fold'em, know when to walk away, know when to run.

Violence -- One minor instance.

Language -- Some profanity.

Sex -- A one-night stand, a breast augmentation bet.

Drugs -- A drink, here and there.

Parents' advisory -- The movie romanticizes card playing and is pretty gentle in depicting compulsive gamblers who never sleep and who grow old and ugly before their time.
