The term '''family-friendly''' is applied to entertainment or educational material (most frequently [[movies]] and [[video games]]) which is appropriate for use by all ages. It is characterized by being free from sexual descriptions (in words or images), [[profanity]], [[blasphemy]], [[drug]] use, graphic depictions of [[crime|criminal]] violence, and is respectful towards [[Christian]] world-view and values.
Though the system of movie age ratings can provide some guide to the content of entertainment, it does not offer a complete description. To fill this niche, Christian services such as [[CAPAlert]] provide a detailed breakdown of how different aspects of a movie could be considered unsuitable for families.
The term ''family-friendly'' may also be used disparagingly to imply material has been sanitised to the point it is misleading, unrealistic or inaccurate.
