Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that the teen girls in this movie are mean to each other and back-stab each other. Britney's boyfriend pressures her to have sex with him, and when she says she's still not ready, calls her a tease. Winnie sleeps with Britney's boyfriend because she's jealous, and Britney has a hard time adjusting to a new school. There's some profanity and rude finger gestures, as well as some race-baiting (Winnie calls the Crenshaw Heights squad "ghetto" -- but by then she's well-established as the Mean Girl of the movie). The characters learn to be honest and trust those who are trustworthy, although this lesson may be overshadowed by the bad behavior leading up to this point. There's also prominent product placement of Fritos, Teen People, Pepsi, and Cingular.
Britney's boyfriend pressures her for sex and has sex with another cheerleader; Winnie does stripper moves to attract a boy. In a dream sequence, Britney grabs her own breasts while cheering about her chest being real.
Liberal use of the words "whore" and "slut" to describe other girls, and lots of flipping the finger.
Girls are mean to each other and are poor role models; Britney learns who her real friends are and to be honest.
Blatant product placement.
