Finding Entertainment Appropriate for Kids: ‘The Spy Next Door’ & More

By Germain Lussier on January 15th, 2010

SpyNextDoor2-MD“Finding Entertainment Appropriate for Kids,” or FEAK, runs every Friday and discusses places – mainly the movie theaters – where parents can look to find things for their kids to watch over the weekend.

Happy Martin Luther King Jr. Weekend. Chances are your children have off an extra day this weekend to celebrate the great social activist but after you’ve taught them about all the late Doctor did for human rights, maybe you want to take them to the movies.

There’s one big family movie this weekend and it’s Jackie Chan’s “The Spy Next Door.” We’ve covered this film all over KidGlue and here are your links.

  • Click here for our review. “The film hits on all family cylinders and though much of the humor falls flat on its face, it’s not without some charm. For that, we commend it. It won’t break any box office records or inspire 100 multiple viewings, but no one in your family will be disappointed that they saw it.”
  • Click here for photos from the movie featuring some of the crazy action in the film.
  • And finally, click here for our giveaway. We are giving away free tickets to see the film in Southern California, spy binoculars and a whole bunch of other spy gear.

If you aren’t interested in that, there are still the old standbys. There’s the super duper 3D blockbuster “Avatar,” the maybe too intense for kids “Sherlock Holmes,” the kid-friendly “Alvin & the Chipmunks: The Squeakquel” or the inspiring “Blind Side.” Click any of those links to find out how appropriate each is for kids.

Check KidGlue next week too, when we’ll have plenty of coverage of the new film “Tooth Fairy” staring Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and Julie Andrews.
