JUST LIKE HEAVEN (2005) (Reese Witherspoon, Mark Ruffalo) (PG-13)

LORD OF WAR (2005) (Nicolas Cage, Jared Leto) (R)

TRANSPORTER 2 (2005) (Jason Statham, Alessandro Gassman) (PG-13)
*Passes the trigger test! However,the entire movie is about a boy who is kidnapped, which may disturb some viewers. No sexual assault occurs. Also, a man kicks another man in the crotch during a fight.

UNDERCLASSMAN (PG-13) (2005) (Jennifer Connelly, Ariel Gade)
*Passes the trigger test! However,some underage girls flirt with a cop who is 23 (they don’t know he is this ‘old’). I thought I’d mention this as it borders on a pedophelia scene, but is not negative and is filmed to be humourous.
