'Superman: The Movie' (1978)

Ages: 8+

Starring: Christopher Reeve, Gene Hackman, Margot Kidder

What Parents Should Know: Parents need to know that many characters are in peril before "Superman" saves the day, including a school bus full of kids teetering off the Golden Gate Bridge, two coasts threatened by a missle launch, and Lois who is buried alive after an earthquake. Superman can't save his adopted dad from a heart attack, however, and is shown mourning his death. There is some smoking in the Daily Planet newsroom typical of the '70s and a few swear words. Superman fights for "truth, justice, and the American way" — your basic superhero role model. —Common Sense Media (Photo: Warner Bros.)
