Parents need to know that The Blockers is a teen comedy in which a group of friends work together to stop a boy from dating each of their exes to prevent them from reuniting and getting back together. The movie includes kissing, innuendo, and cussing. Characters make out, and there is some sexual banter among the teens. There is alcohol and drug use (including marijuana) and sexual innuendo, and the film suggests that one of the teens is gay, which viewers may find objectionable.
Parents need to know that The Emoji Movie is a new take on the popular smartphone app, Emoji. The plot revolves around a little girl (voiced by T.J. Miller) who, thanks to her friends on the app, can send a special code to her phone that unlocks various characters, including emoji. The characters do great things, like travel into outer space (which ends badly for the heroine) or destroy the solar system. Other characters are horrible, but the violence is mostly directed at the app. The characters engage in several violent acts, including a decapitation, a stabbing, and a shooting. There are also references to shootings and drug use. Language is used in a profanity-laden manner. A few characters smoke, but there's also some drinking. Some characters use bad language when interacting with a child. A character (Tommy Davidson) has a crush on a female teen, but there's no romantic interaction between them.
If you're curious about the film's rating, the MPAA has rated the movie PG for mild suggestive dialogue, some crude humor, and brief violence -- all of which involves falling; a kid being accidentally shot with a gun (a realistic effect); and people dying within the game, all of which are done quickly and are regenerated quickly within the game.
While most of the movies on this list are not kid-friendly fare, Spies in Disguise is something that all ages can enjoy. Lance Sterling (Will Smith) is a secret agent who, oops, gets turned into a pigeon by a young scientist (Tom Holland). Naturally, they must work together to save the day. 827ec27edc
