Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that this take on the classic Beauty and the Beast story (which is based on the novel by Alex Flinn) is aimed squarely at teens who love all things Twilight. But those drawn to the movie by its stars (High School Musical's Vanessa Hudgens and "it" boy Alex Pettyfer) and basic romantic supernatural storyline might be disappointed by what ends up feeling more like a toothless high school popularity contest movie. Plus, unlike Twilight, this film has some strong language (including "s--t") and underage drinking, as well as kissing, sexual innuendo, and plenty of label-dropping. Witchcraft plays a role in the plot.
Tender kisses between the movie's stars; a couple paws each other at a party. Several close-up shots of the main male character shirtless. A few sexual innuendoes.
A man shoots another man off screen and kills him; the body is later seen. Another man threatens another's child. A high school boy ridicules a classmate repeatedly.
Words include "s--t," "ass," "crap," "slut," "skank," "bulls--t," "WTF," and "bitch."
The movie is ultimately saying that beauty isn't skin deep, and valuing the outside above all else can make your insides ugly.
Some label-flashing and name-dropping, including Ducati, Forbes, D'Agostino, Duane Reade, Coke, Footlocker, Jujyfruit, and Bulgari.

Some underage drinking at a party; drug references.
