Movie Review: Skip 'Mansions,' See 'Bears'


If you're thinking about hitting the theater with the family this weekend, movie reviewers from Plugged In would suggest opting for "God's Not Dead" or Disney's "Bears" over "Brick Mansions."

Action movie "Brick Mansions," set in 2018, was one of the last films actor Paul Walker completed before his untimely death last November. Plugged In movie reviewer Bob Hoose gave it a 2 out of 5 for family friendliness.

Comparatively, Hoose gave "Bears" a 5 out of 5, a rare rating from the online review website. The movie follows a mother bear and her cubs as they live out their daily life enjoying salmon meals and avoiding predators.

What other films should families check out this weekend? Bob Waliszewski, director of Focus on the Family's entertainment review department, Plugged In Online, answered this and more on CBN News Today, April 25.
