QUICK TAKE:
Sci-Fi: A man and then woman must contend with being brought out of deep hibernation decades before scheduled on a 120-year trip to colonize another planet.
PLOT:
The interstellar spaceship Avalon is on a 120-year one-way journey to Homestead II, a planet that the 258 crewmembers and 5,000 passengers -- all of them in deep hibernation -- intend to colonize. But something goes wrong and one of the passengers, Jim Preston (CHRIS PRATT), is awakened too early. As in 90 years too early, with no one else around except for the android bartender Arthur (MICHAEL SHEEN) who's happy to serve Jim a drink, but otherwise knows nothing about how the ship operates.

After a year with no human contact and having exhausted his attempts to break into the sealed bridge in order to turn the ship around, Jim begins to contemplate bringing another passenger out of deep hibernation so that he doesn't live out the rest of his life alone. Despite the moral dilemma, and having become enamored with her via video clip files he's found, Jim brings passenger Aurora Lane (JENNIFER LAWRENCE) out of stasis. She's a writer looking for a grand adventure that will inspire her creative work, but she's shocked to learn she's come out decades too soon, and Jim is waiting for the right time to tell her what he's done. In the meantime, they eventually fall for one another and become a couple.

When she finally discovers what he did, that puts an end to that romance. From that point on, they must not only contend with that, but also increasing glitches and failures on the ship, some of which result in Chief Gus Mancuso (LAURENCE FISHBURNE) also coming out of hibernation too soon.

WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?

WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: PG-13

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.

I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
