What parents should consider when seeing “Iron Man 3."

Violence: Being an action/superhero film, there is a lot of fighting with weapons as well as hand-to-hand combat. Even though some of the characters die on screen, there is not much blood in the film. Some people are injected with a substance that changes their bodies. Some characters can heat up and melt things, including humans. Some people have limbs taken off, some of which grow back. A house is blown up using missiles fired from helicopters while people are in the house. There are many explosions.

Sensuality: Women are playing ping-pong in swimsuits. Two women are found in bed in lingerie. Pepper says Tony should join her in the shower but not suggestively. Tony takes a woman to his hotel room insinuating they will be intimate. Most of Tony's comments are meant to be comical. There is some kissing during the film but the only nudity is a shirtless man during a fight scene.

Language/drinking/smoking: There are only a few instances of profanity. There is a scene in a local bar. One character almost always has a beer in his hands. The same character mentions having drugs supplied to him for recreational use.

    A dance party for kids and tweens looks like a rave or perhaps a wild night at the club. But actually, many of the people at this party probably just learned how to tie their shoes. Twin brothers Tyler and Tristin recently had a FUZIPOP party in Manhattan to celebrate their 10th birthday. Never heard of a FUZIPOP party?

    New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie and the federal prosecutor investigating political payback allegations involving the Republican's administration are both set to speak at a prisoner re-entry conference on Thursday.
    Former NBA player Jayson Williams says trying to re-enter society after serving time for shooting a limousine driver was more difficult than being in prison.
