Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that singers Cher and Christina Aguilera star in this fairly sexy musical, which has lots of suggestive dancing and skimpy costumes, as well as a scene with a naked male backside, some kissing, and some under-covers snuggling. There's also some swearing (including "s--t" and one use of "f--k") and drinking (including a scene in which a character drives under the influence). But underlying all of the racy stuff are feel-good messages about small-town girls making good, nice guys finishing first, and being anything you want to be if you try.

Sexual Content

Lots of scenes of burlesque performers dancing suggestively in barely there costumes. A man walks around naked -- his backside is briefly visible -- to pique the interest of a woman he likes (even though he's still somewhat attached to his long-distance girlfriend). They're shown kissing and lounging in bed under covers. Some references to a passionate one-night stand between friends. A character picks up a DJ at a party.

Violence

After a drunk woman insults her mentor, she's paid back by having a tire iron swung at her car window.

Language

Some swearing, including "ass," "bitch," "s--t," "prick," "a--hole," "hell," "damn," "goddamn," "crap," "oh my God," and one use of "f--k."

Social Behavior

Amid the showy dancing and soapy drama are some positive messages: for example, that the road to success doesn't necessarily need to be paved by the flattened souls you tread on while clambering to the top. Plus hard work trumps the easy way out, and loyalty matters.

Consumerism

Not applicable

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Some social drinking at a nightclub. A dancer shows up at work drunk and is shown a few times trying to sneak a drink. Later, she drives while under the influence. A man gets sloshed at a party.
