Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this comedy, while mildly amusing and generally age-appropriate for older tweens (who are sure to want to see it), plays up stereotypes about women with its emphasis on shopping, consumerism, and conflict between friends. The main characters are fairly two dimensional, and they seem much more caught up in having the perfect wedding than in having a strong marriage. That said, the language is mild ("ass" and the like), and the sexuality is on the milder side (kisses, a brief glimpse at a bra and panties as a character changes) -- though a bachelorette party scene includes shirtless male strippers. There is a notable amount of drinking (tequila shots, especially), and prominently featured brands include the Plaza Hotel, Apple, Tiffany, and Vera Wang.

Sexual Content

A couple of scenes of the actresses in hot pants or bras. Several kisses between the engaged couples, who live together and are seen sleeping/cuddling in bed. Male strippers (all shirtless) are shown in the bachelorette party scene.


A quick pushing and shoving fight between the two brides.


"Mother Eff" (not the whole word, just "Eff"), plus some insults like "jerk," "ass," etc.

Social Behavior

Best friends seem more interested in their wedding days than in their actual marriages, and they let wedding planning get in the way of their friendship.


Brands featured include Apple (several Macs and iPods), Tiffany, Vera Wang, The Knot magazine, Bloomingdale's, and Dolce & Gabbana. It's also practically a commercial for The Plaza Hotel.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Adults drink alcohol at various wedding receptions, and the brides-to-be and their friends get drunk on tequila shots at their bachelorette party. One character seems to be tipsy most of the time.
