Parents guide

Dan in Real Life

Rating -- PG-13 for some innuendo.

What it's about -- Single dad raises his three girls, one of whom is in the middle of her first crush, but finds love himself at a big noisy family reunion.

The Kid Attractor Factor -- Very cute kids, comically chaotic reunion.

Good lessons/bad lessons -- Before giving advice on young love to your kids, maybe consider how messy your own love life can be.

Violence -- None.

Language -- Disney clean.

Sex -- Suggested, yearned for.

Drugs -- None.

Parents' advisory -- A family-friendly comedy that will be a little over the heads of 10-and-unders.

The Comebacks

Rating -- PG-13 for crude and sexual content throughout and some drug material.

What it's about -- Loser coach guides college football team to "the Big Game," spoofing every sports movie under the sun as he does.

The Kid Attractor Factor -- A sports-savvy comedy with hunky boys and a hot co-ed.

Good lessons/bad lessons -- There's more to life than sports, especially if you're a coach's wife.

Violence -- On-field mayhem.

Language -- The odd crude remark.

Sex -- Shirts are ripped off, brassieres are fondled.

Drugs -- One scene runs the gamut of drug abuse, including bong hits.

Parents' advisory -- A coarse and common comedy that isn't the least bit appropriate for children younger than 13.
