Director: Joe Wright | Stars: Bryce Dallas Howard, Alice Eve, Cherry Jones, James Norton

Votes: 41,661

An interesting topic for teens because everyone is crazy about instagram (grabs their attention) but be careful, there are some swear words. It's good to discuss the film later as it shows the negative sides of social media and how we have to be careful. And you don't have to push them, kids are happy to share their opinion.

Be prepared for some uncomfortable questions at the next dinner if you serve pork, hehe. Well, the babe itself forgives the owner for eating pigs so maybe you'll be OK. Anyway , the film is great. 9/10

A thriller with almost completely no blood and with the moral. Nothing sexual either. There are only two kisses in the film. A little bit of smoking but with a negative attitude towards it. One occasion of wine drinking. Well,.. there are swear words.

10. Corrina, Corrina (1994)

Director: Jessie Nelson | Stars: Ray Liotta, Whoopi Goldberg, Tina Majorino, Noreen Hennessey

Votes: 11,551 | Gross: $20.16M

Incredibly kind, heart-warming film which touches a very sensitive topic - the little girl in the film is dealing with her mother's death. The only minus is too much of cigarettes, but during the depicted period of time they were super popular and when I watched this film as a kid (12) I didn't notice them, I was concentrating on the characters.

Votes: 84,479 | Gross: $29.26M

6-7 stars out of ten. Not the greatest but pretty good with a positive message: don't hate your brother:) Could be a little bit boring for adults but engaging for kids. No alcohol, no cigarettes, no sex, no kissing. Pure and simple, you can watch it with your youngest kids.

Votes: 166,148 | Gross: $71.57M

Good for teens, not for little ones 'cause there are some intense moments that could scare them. No sex, no alcohol, there is smoking in couple of scenes but then it's called stupid, no blood, almost no blood.. there is one person sliced in two parts at the end of the film, but yeah, almost no blood. Interesting story and decent special effects.

Director: Mario Azzopardi | Stars: Richard Dean Anderson, Michael Shanks, Amanda Tapping, Christopher Judge

Votes: 5,202

Continues the story of the original Stargate. This updated version doesn't have nude scenes. It neither has anything super violent, they shoot there but you can't see any blood. The only scene that is maybe intense is where an alien comes out of one person's stomach. They didn't have the same budget as the original film hence the costumes that aren't so good but the story is interesting.
