Movie Reviews: "Glee 3D" and "The Help"

Ad Feedback

Looking for something to do this weekend? Maybe a trip to the movies is in store with three new films making their theatrical debut.

"The Help" is set in Mississippi during the 1960s. A southern society girl returns from college determined to become a writer, but turns her friends' lives -- and a small Mississippi town -- upside down when she decides to interview the black women who have spent their lives taking care of prominent families.

The movie's cast includes Viola Davis, Bryce Dallas Howard, Octavia Spencer, Emma Stone, and Jessica Chastain. It is rated PG-13.

"Glee: The 3D Concert Movie" will enable "gleeks" to experience the cast's sold out concert tour in the magic of a 3D theatrical event.

The movie stars 14 more members of the Emmy and Golden Globe Award-winning television show's cast and was shot live during the summer concerts. The film is rated PG.

In the action-comedy "30 Minutes or Less," Nick is a small town pizza delivery guy whose mundane life collides with the big plans of two want-to-be criminal masterminds. The volatile duo kidnaps Nick and forces him to rob a bank. This film is rated R.

Focus on the Family's movie critic Bob Waliszewski offered his opinions on the three new films, and if any are family-friendly on the CBN News Channel's Midday News, Aug. 12.
