People are looking for movies that 1) they can take a family to 2) that aren't shoving politics or politically correct "cause of the day" at them, and 3) something with some intelligent humor.

I give Guardians 2.5 to 3.0 stars, though unnecessarily rough language, some cheap humor and formulaic script and plot drag it down. Also, all of the computer generated graphics and over-the-top amounts of violence are becoming tired and over-used by studios who are having a crisis of creativity.

So Guardians will do ok because of its action-adventure-wrapped-in-comedy script. But Hollywood could do better.
