Parents' Guide

The Baltimore Sun

Balls of Fury

Rating -- PG-13

What it's about -- A down-and-out ex-table tennis champ is recruited by the FBI to help bring down the pingpong kingpin who killed his father.

The Kid Attractor Factor -- Christopher Walken and table tennis.

Good lessons/bad lessons -- Pingpong isn't about what paddle you use. It's what's in your heart.

Violence -- Gunplay, martial arts punches and crotch shots.

Language -- The odd curse word, and the title is a bawdy pun.

Sex -- A make-out moment or two and interesting underwear.

Drugs -- Referenced.

Parents' advisory -- Even the Asian stereotypes lack sting in this inordinately inoffensive goofball hero comedy.
