Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that although this musical movie features Bratz characters who are too overtly sexy for the tweens at which they are aimed, the story line itself is mostly benign.
Skimpy clothes and high-heeled shoes are the trademark trampy look for the characters, who nonetheless manage to keep things platonic with male characters. A surprisingly sweet and gentle flirtation between a teenaged boy and girl.
Hijinks with water balloons is as bad as it gets.
Slang abounds, but no swearing.
A well-trod tale of friends deciding to go it alone for a competition, only to realize that they have more fun when working together as a team. A seemingly mean girl is given a chance by the four friends and develops into a friendly and sympathetic character. At camp the kids have little if any supervision; adults are either mean, clueless, or completely absent.
Tie-ins to related Bratz dolls are inevitable, and the DVD packaging features ads for the dolls, video game, wireless microphone, and something called a Music Video Star Maker.
