The Post-Gazette reviews movies from a family perspective:

'White House Down'

Rated: PG-13.

Suitable for: Mature tweens and older.

What you should know: Channing Tatum plays a Capitol policeman who shows up for an interview for the Secret Service, goes on a White House tour with his 11-year-old daughter and ends up unofficially protecting the president (Jamie Foxx) when the complex is overtaken by a heavily armed paramilitary group.

Language: A little more than a dozen uses of profanity, one f-word (and one truncated use) and about two dozen other milder four-letter words.

Sexual situations and nudity: A brief shot of a couple in bed, seen through a thermal lens.

Violence/scary situations: Lots, almost from beginning to end, with explosions, fires, deadly gunfire, grenades, chases, hostage-taking, falls, a plane going down in flames, a car that plunges into water, a gun held to a child's head and the threat of worldwide destruction.

Alcohol and drug use: A woman in peril relishes a drink she sips.
