Parental Guidance: The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2 and Brave

This week is relatively slim pickings for family-friendly moviegoing. In theaters, we've got The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2, the conclusion to the teen-centric vampire franchise; and on DVD we've got Brave, Pixar's animated ode to girl power. In addition, Steven Spielberg's Lincoln, which we profiled last week, opens in wide release. However, other noteworthy releases, including Anna Karenina (in limited release) and The Watch (on DVD) are rated R, so proceed with caution.

The weekend's other new releases were not met with as much enthusiasm as the stylish action thriller Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter premiered in third place with moderate numbers while Steve Carell's Seeking A Friend for the End of the World was dead on arrival in tenth place. The overall marketplace was down again from a year ago when Pixar also reigned supreme. Moms, daughters, and others lined up for Brave.More…

Critics Consensus: Brave Is Rousing and Heartfelt

This week at the multiplex, we've got Pixar's first heroine in a starring role ("Brave," with a vocal performance from Kelly Macdonald as the bow-wielding princess Merida).
