Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this confusing sequel leaves one with a distinct "been there, done that" feeling. A muddled plot and mature themes such as sex make it inappropriate for grade-school children. If they don't get bored, the dilemmas faced by the characters may provoke thought and discussion for older kids and preteens. The important themes may hold some teens' attention, though many will likely lose interest.
