More PG/PG-13 films from 1990 that "push the limits," according to Hicks, include "Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves," "The Rocketeer," "Problem Child 2" and "Drop Dead Fred."
A list of movies from the 2000s for families includes "The Odd Life of Timothy Green" (2102), "We Bought a Zoo" (2011), "Hugo" (2011), "Ella Enchanted" (2004) and "The School of Rock" (2003).
Hicks also notes the films such as "The Dark Knight" (2008) and "The Dark Knight Rises" (2012) received PG-13 ratings and were described in vague terms, but very easily could have received an R-rating.
The book also includes a vast index of films, an insightful resource for any film-buff.
"Has Hollywood Lost Its Mind?" was published by Familius, a company started in 2012 by Christopher and Michele Robbins with the purpose of "helping families be happy," according to its website, familius.com.
Hicks appreciated the chance to write the book and hopes it can help parents feel more informed when it comes to family movie night.
"It was fun to write. I’m really glad Christopher approached me about this, I'm really glad I did it, even if no one sees it but my family," he said. "I feel like I’ve accomplished something. I also tried to make it entertaining. I hope it makes for a fun read as well as providing information."
