Information for parents deciding which movies are best for kids ages 2 to 18:

Why it’s rated PG: Peril, including fire, collapsing bridge, rapids, engine failure, action and some violence (no one irreparably hurt), some bathroom humor.

Minimum age: 6.

Family discussion: Who in this movie has to decide how to handle it when their plans do not work out? How do you think about your own back-up plans?

If you like this, try: “Cars” and “Planes.”
