In terms of pure laughs, it seems that family films are prevailing at the box office this summer. Now, for those who’ve already test-driven “Cars” or sailed along with Captain Jack Sparrow, there’s the silly, frightening fun of “Monster House” -- a movie that’s far more enjoyable than its trailer.

Oh, Disney! What a disappointment that you had to muck up an otherwise perfect family film with so much language and sex. I laughed, and most audiences will too, but no kid under 16 should go near this film. Which really is a shame, because it has a great message.
