The Post-Gazette reviews movies from a family perspective:

'Baggage Claim'

Rated: PG-13.

Suitable for: Teens and older moviegoers.

What you should know: Paula Patton plays an unmarried flight attendant, living in Baltimore, who wants to find a fiance before her younger sister's wedding in this romcom. With just 30 days to go, she decides to revisit old boyfriends, with a little help from fellow airline employees.

Language: Half-dozen uses of the s-word or stronger version of "darn."

Sexual situations and nudity: Pretty tame given the subject matter. A shirtless man and underwear-clad woman are shown kissing in a prelude to going to bed, a man relaxes in a hot tub, jokes are made about cranberry-flavored condoms and a woman's ample cleavage, and there are references to people cheating on their partners.

Violence/scary situations: A jealous woman screams, kicks at her apartment door and issues (comic) threats when she suspects a couple are inside.

Drug and alcohol use: Adults drink wine, champagne, scotch or other drinks in a bar, on a plane, at a celebratory event or elsewhere.

'Enough Said'

Rated: PG-13.

Suitable for: Mature high school students and up.

What you should know: This is a romantic comedy starring Julia Louis-Dreyfus and, in one of his final performances, James Gandolfini. They meet at a party and strike up a relationship, jeopardized when she begins to view him through another person's bitter perspective.

Language: A couple of uses of profanity, an f-word and a handful of other mild words.

Sexual situations and nudity: A couple are shown kissing or in bed in generally tame scenes. Jokes are made about a man's pajamas revealing a little too much or about threesomes, and curious questioners ask if massages get men excited although a crude term is used.

Violence/scary situations: None.

Drug and alcohol use: Adults drink, mainly wine at a party or with meals.
