Parents’ guide to ‘Green Hornet’
‘THE GREEN HORNET’ Rating: PG-13 for sequences of violent action, language, sensuality and drug content.
What it’s about: A hard-partying heir to a newspaper fortune, on a goof, decides to become a crime fighter and enlists his martial-arts and gadget-whiz chauffeur as a sidekick.
The kid attractor factor: Seth Rogen and lots of explosions, shootouts and car chases.
Good lessons/bad lessons: “Trying doesn’t matter when you always fail.”
Violence: Shootings, crushings, dismemberments, etc.
Language: Lots of profanity, including almost everything but the F-bomb.
Sex: Nubile females are ogled.
Drugs: Drunk scenes, meth labs.
Parents’ advisory: This rude and crude fanboy-oriented, masked-hero movie is a pretty severe test of the limits of PG-13, suitable for 13 and older, but barely.
