Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that this movie may look fresh and fun to young girls who buy the dolls, but the themes presented are questionable for their age group. For example: A fashion editor thinks eating carbs makes her "look fat," the girls sneak into clubs, and one character has had three nose jobs. The plot centers around the Bratz's goal of publishing their own fashion magazine, which will have such supposedly "helpful" articles as how to tell if your boyfriend is a dud and ways to be a "fashion do." There's also plenty of back-stabbing and rude behavior throughout. The Bratz kids love to go shopping and spend money on clothes, and your kids can do a little pre-shopping for more Bratz stuff (CDs, etc.) in the Special Features section of the DVD.
Chloe flirts with a British boy who later turns out to be rude. Another boy falls on top of Chloe by accident and brings up love.
One male character shoves a bouncer to get into a club; another gets jealous and imagines his romantic competitor's head exploding. Lots of bossing around on the part of Burdine Maxwell, the magazine editor.
Lots of slang -- "super scorchin' guy," "whatever" -- and words like "lame-o," "loser," "moron," and "jerk."
For a show aimed at kids, there's a lot of back-stabbing and rude behavior. Burdine Maxwell ridicules Jade and the Tweevils, who try to steal Chloe's new guy (who seems happy to be flirting with them). The Bratz sneak into a club, lying their way in. Chloe dumps her friends for a boy.
Based on the popular dolls. Characters are big into consumerism (buying outfits, shoes, etc.). Ads for Bratz CDs and movies in Special Features area of the DVD.
