parent's guide

Catch and Release

Rating -- PG-13


What it's about -- A young woman must get over the death of her fiance and learn to live and love again, and maybe not be such a stick in the mud.

The Kid Attractor Factor -- Jennifer Garner, some funny stuff with Juliette Lewis and Kevin Smith.


Good lessons/bad lessons -- You never really "know" somebody until you're executor of his estate.

Violence -- A fish is stomped. To death.

Language -- A bit of profanity, here and there.

Sex -- Three or four fairly suggestive scenes.

Drugs -- A joint makes an appearance.

Parents advisory -- If they're old enough to date, they're old enough to see it. And want to see it.
