Nothing spoils a movie for a parent quite as quickly as having to explain an unexpected, uncomfortable situation on screen. For parents who don’t mind spoilers, Kids in Mind is an app that gives extensive movie summaries with lists of the violence, profanity, sexual innuendo and drug references for movies in theaters and on video.
The reviews don’t always match with a film’s actual rating — which could signal to parents when it’s fine to let kids watch “more mature” movies or signal when a more open rating doesn’t seem quite right. So if you’re looking for a reason to spend time with your kids this Father’s Day — or a reason to justify not taking your kids to a movie with you — give it a whirl. Free, with ads for iOS and Android devices. With no ads, $1.99 on iOS and $3.99 on Android.
