How Family-Friendly Is Logan Lucky?

by | August 18, 2017 | Comments

Only one of the wide releases this week is rated PG-13 or lower, and it’s the Steven Soderbergh caper Logan Lucky, so your toddlers and pre-teens probably aren’t going to be interested. But if you’ve got older kids, and you’re really looking to see the movie yourself, here’s what you should know about it.


NOW IN THEATERS

 

Logan Lucky (2017) 92%

Rating: PG-13, for language and some crude comments.

Steven Soderbergh is back, four years after saying he was retiring from filmmaking, with another heist movie – but this one’s more down-home and low-key than the splashy Ocean’s trilogy. Channing Tatum, Adam Driver, and Riley Keough play siblings who scheme to rob the Charlotte Motor Speedway in North Carolina during a major NASCAR race. Along the way they have to stage a prison break – in and out, then back in again – steal various cars, avoid the authorities, and still be done in time for Tatum’s character to attend a beauty pageant where his young daughter is competing. There’s language scattered throughout, a bit of violence during a bar brawl, some explosions, and general destruction in order to pull off the scheme. Plus, you know, these are criminals – but they’re quick-witted, clever criminals. The subject matter, the pacing, and the length of the film (a minute shy of two hours) will probably make this a tough sit for anyone younger than about 11 or 12 and up.
