Quick picks of wholesome/clean movies for teens and adults

ImageA trip to the video shop can be a daunting experience. There's so much to choose from -- but which ones constitute suitable viewing? The MercatorNet Quick Picks for Adults and Teens --- from their web site www.mercatornet.com --- is a selection of films that can be watched without having to press the fast-forward button. Keep in mind, however, that there might be a degree of violence or profanity in some of the selections. If you are looking for films suitable for children, consult the Mercator Quick Picks for Kids  (http://www.mercatornet.com/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=76)

An asterisk (*) in front of the title indicates a superior film -- although this is obviously a matter of taste. To give our readers another quality benchmark, we have surveyed some leading critics and recorded their views, on a scale of 1 (poor)  to 10 (outstanding).
