You wouldn’t think those three things have anything in common, but they’re the topics of three films in theaters this weekend.
In “Into the Storm” (rated PG-13) a ficitional town attempts to stay safe during a massive storm which includes quite a few tornadoes. While Bob says there are some family values here, there’s also a lot of intense moments and quite a bit of language. He gave it 2.5 out of 5 for family friendliness.
In the reboot of “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles”, Michael Bay brings some visually impressive fights to the screen, but Bob says there’s not much plot to be found. There’s some good messages of heroism in the movie, but the movie is mainly fighting and destruction, so Bob gave it a 3 out of 5 for family friendliness but wouldn’t recommend it for young kids.
And finally, “The Hundred Foot Journey” follows the story of two restaurants, duking it out for customers. Bob really liked this one and said the character development is strong, the messages are positive and it got a 4 out of 5 for family friendliness.
