'Marmaduke'

Rating: PG for some rude humor and language.

What it's about: Big, goofy, talking (to other dogs) Great Dane endures his teen years in Southern California.

The kid attractor factor: Big dog, small car. Big dog, small bubble bath. You get the picture.

Good lessons/bad lessons: Sometimes you change to fit in, sometimes others should change to fit you.

Violence: Canine slapstick.

Language: Doggie trash talk: "Who's lickin' butt now?"

Sex: Flirtation.

Drugs: The dog and cat are tranquilized for a plane trip.

Parents' advisory: Utterly harmless, but probably too bland for anybody over 10.

'Get Him to the Greek'

Rating: R for strong sexual content and drug use throughout, and pervasive language.

What it's about: A drunken has-been is escorted to a comeback concert by his biggest fan.

The kid attractor factor: It has hints of "Superbad" and "Forgetting Sarah Marshall" in it.

Good lessons/bad lessons: Choose your idols carefully, but they can still let you down.

Violence: Not really.

Language: Lots of profanity.

Sex: Yes, comically graphic.

Drugs: More than you can imagine.

Parents' advisory: The drug use should give even parents of "Free Range" teens pause. Take the R-rating seriously.
