School’s out in China and that means plenty of family-friendly fodder at the cinemas. Well, technically all of the films screened in China are family-friendly thanks to the lack of any ratings system and some heavily-enforced content guidelines, but the summer holidays brings a wave of especially kid-centric movies.
