MOMMY MOVIE REVIEW: Is “Ant-Man & the Wasp” OK for Kids?

We were in dire need of a lighthearted Marvel movie after April’s devastating Avengers: Infinity War, so thank goodness Ant-Man and the Wasp are back and bringing the laughs. This time, Scott Lang (Paul Rudd) and Hope Van Dyne (Evangeline Lily) are attempting to bring her mother (played by a stunning Michelle Pheiffer) back from the Quantum Realm, with the help of Dr. Hank Pym (Michael Douglas). A stranger called Ghost threatens their progress while a sleazy billionaire (Walton Coggins) attempts to steal their technology at every turn. Time is running out to save The Wasp’s Mom, and Ant-Man will risk it all (including his own family-life) to save her.
