What’s it about? Tony Stark (Robert Downey, Jr.) is still recovering from the events of The Avengers, while leaving the management of Stark International to Pepper Potts (Gwyneth Paltrow). Pepper is approached by an old colleague of Tony’s about a new organic technology, but will it be a blessing or a curse — and how will Iron Man respond to threats from a ruthless terrorist?
Who’s it for? It’s rated PG-13 “for sequences of intense sci-fi action and violence throughout, and brief suggestive content.” Expect more raffish behavior from Tony and a bunch of loud explosions and perilous situations that are probably ok for middle schoolers but too intense for younger kids.
Is it any good? Critics say the Certified Fresh Iron Man 3 is a witty, entertaining adventure and a strong addition to the Marvel canon.
What’s it about? Seth Rogen stars as an inventor who plans to drive cross-country to pitch his newest product. He invites his overbearing mom (Barbra Streisand) along in an attempt to fix her up with an old boyfriend in San Francisco.
Who’s it for? It’s rated PG-13 for “language and some risqué material.” It’s probably safe for teens.
Is it any good? Critics say The Guilt Trip is undeniably sweet, and the leads are in fine form, but there are absolutely no surprises (and few laughs) to be found in the script.
