FAMILY FRIENDLY REVIEWS You may want to check to see if a particular movie is appropriate for your family. While there are many review sites with many different perspectives (religion, etc.), the Kids in Mind site and Common Sense Media are two sites you can visit. Also, IMDB.com provides a "Parents Guide" review of each film. Please bear in mind that movies were not rated until 1969, and some classic movies may not be reviewed on these particular sites. Please do your own research to determine the appropriateness of any movie for your family.
