Nine
Short Story:
In this star-studded musical -- with a cast including Daniel Day-Lewis, Kate Hudson, Nicole Kidman, Penelope Cruz, Fergie, Marion Cotillard, Sophia Loren and Judi Dench -- an Italian director reflects on the many women in his life.

What They're Saying:
"Director Rob Marshall knows how to put on a show, but that's just it. It's only a show. This film is all about the individual performances." -- The Scorecard Review

"Younger viewers probably won’t be able to fully appreciate the movie's mature themes related to relationships and creative challenges, but the cast may draw them in anyway." -- Common Sense Media

Good for Kids?
The sexual content and frequent smoking make this film best for ages 15 and up.

Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Squeakquel
Short Story:
This animated sequel revisits the misadventures of that lovable, furry trio.

What They're Saying:
"It's far from the most unpleasant kiddie flick I've sat through this year, although I would be misleading you if I promised you lots of laughs" -- New York Post

"It's one that will keep little moviegoers happy without driving their parents too squirrelly." -- Toronto Star

Good for Kids?
This flick, which focuses on family and positive lessons, is fine for kids 6 and older.

It's Complicated
Short Story:
A divorced mom's (Meryl Streep) life is turned upside down when a drunken night leads to an affair with her married ex-husband (Alec Baldwin).

What They're Saying:
"Snappy dialogue and an uptempo pop soundtrack add to It's Complicated's entertaining mix as director Nancy Meyers proves again that she has a deft hand with rom-coms." -- Toronto Star

"The romantic comedy about a divorced couple having an affair manages to be both light on its feet and heavy enough to deliver something of a message." -- Washington Post

Good for Kids?
Despite a scene involving marijuana smoking, this one's okay for 15 and older.

Sherlock Holmes
Short Story:

Famous sleuths Sherlock Holmes (Robert Downey Jr.) and his partner Watson (Jude Law) team up once more to defeat their enemies and crack the case.

What They're Saying:
"Director Guy Ritchie's take on the Sherlock Holmes legend presents an earthier, brawnier, and glossier version of the famous literary/cinematic detective than most of us are used to...which is exactly why teens will love it." -- Common Sense Media

"A first-rate action adventure movie that provides a near perfect example of how to redress an aging genre franchise for a new audience" -- KungFuCinema.com

 

Good for Kids?
Rated PG-13 for frequent violence, this action film is a hit for adults and teens over 14.

Up in the Air
Short Story:
A frequent-flying businessman (George Clooney) gets thrown a curveball when his company decides to cut back on travel. Can he adjust to life on the ground?

What They're Saying:
"Clooney -- slim, dark, perfectly tailored -- glamorizes insincerity in a way that makes you want to go out and lie." -- New York magazine

"Up in the Air takes the trust people once had in their jobs and pulls out the rug. It is a film for this time." -- RogerEbert.com

Good for Kids?
Sexual content and strong language earn this an adults-only R-rating.
