Family movie of the week:

"Family" movie doesn't necessarily mean "kids" movie. What it does mean, is that it is suitable for viewing by, and will appeal to, all family members, without insulting anyone's intelligence. For example:

The new Lindsay Lohan movie "Just My Luck", while it is suitable for viewing by all ages, would appeal only to teenage girls and probably no one else (NOT a family movie).

The film "United 93", ought to be watched by everybody, but would probably only appeal to adults (also, NOT a family movie).

Last year's so-called "family" movie, "Son of the Mask". Not suitable to be view by anybody, as it is an insult to the intelligence at any age (definitely, NOT a family movie).

Kids are quite capable of grasping advanced concepts in films. Show them something that will not turn their brains to mush. Instead, show them a good movie that will stimulate their imagination.

This week's movie will do just that. The hero of the movie is 5 years old. They don't insult you by having him outsmart the adults. They don't endow him with superhuman abilities, just an imagination and normal curiosity. Kids will identify with him and his older brother. Adults will find humor in the way that events fall into place, and in the depiction of Damian's imaginings. Made by the director of "Trainspotting" and "28 Days Later", this is definitely a departure from those. You can read more about it at the IMDB site by clicking on the movie title (the underlined one) above.

Good recommendation -- I loved this one! Stephen (5 when we rented it) wasn't quite as interested, but the children did appeal to him.
