    I just know I've come across such things on the web but can't seem to find 'em again now that I'm looking [​IMG]

    Can anyone suggest a site or sites that have parent's reviews of kids' movies, oriented towards helping you decide whether a particular movie is appopriate for your particular kids to watch?

    I am considering gettting our oldest a dvd of Cars for his upcoming 4th birthday (he has underwear with the characters printed on it, and makes up stories about the different cars [​IMG]) but I really do not know whether the language, plot (violence, scariness) etc would be appropriate for him. (Have any of y'all seen it, in fact, and if so what did you think?)

    Thanks very much for all suggestions,

    Pat

    I saw it and it was cute. No language except for one part when they are talking about the Piston Cup and the other car says," You did what!" Other than that it is cute and funny.

    Netflixs, maybe???
    Cars is a great movie. Can't really go wrong with Disney Pixar. [​IMG]

    Is there much violence (fighting, hitting, shooting) in the movie, or scary parts?

    Thanks very much,

    Pat

    This site will tell you everything good and bad in a movie...

    screenit.com

    I always use it before I take my kids (and myself) to see anything.
