Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that this TV movie is littered with sexual references in all forms, from passionate kissing to chats about previous sexual encounters, and in one case, the implication of a short-term partner's overnight stay (though nothing beyond making out is shown). The main character's mission to date as many guys as possible has iffy messages for teens about responsible relationships. Sporadic language ("hell" and "ass," mostly) is another concern, but none of this is probably new to the teen viewers the movie is geared toward. The main character lies and deceives her coworkers for the sake of her article, but the eventual exposure of her actions forces her to take responsibility for what she's done.
Lots of passionate kissing, and an implied sexual encounter (the guy leaves the woman's apartment the next morning), but nothing is shown. Characters make frequent references to sex, including talking about where they've had sex, whom they'd like to have sex with, and the desire to "get laid." Men and women comment on each other's appeal, calling individuals "sexy," and "hot," and checking out butts.
Marginal language like "ass," "butt," "freakin'," "bastard," and "hell" are used intermittently. "Oh my God" is a common phrase.
While Lane nearly loses everything she's worked for -- both personally and professionally -- when her many lies catch up with her, she learns her lesson about toying with others' trust and emotions and finds that it's impossible to go wrong when you follow your heart. Some iffy messages about a woman's need for a man are part of the story.

Drinking -- beer, champagne, and mixed beverages -- is central to any social gathering, but no one suffers ill effects from it.
