Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that although most of the content in this by-the-book romantic comedy is age-appropriate for older tweens and young teens (there's little swearing and drinking and no nudity or violence), it's swimming in consumerism and high-end product placement and reinforces some broad stereotypes about women. Despite being chastened in the end, the main character seems downright naïve -- and a tad unapologetic -- about her shop-'til-you're-bankrupt ways. Kids may enjoy the fantasy, but parents may find that the frothy "escapism" feels out of place in these unsettled economic times.

Sexual Content

Flirting and some kissing.

Violence

Not applicable

Language

Pretty mild and infrequent. Words include "ass," "crap," "bitch," "hell," and "oh my God."

Social Behavior

A woman shops endlessly despite being deeply in debt and lies to everyone about her habit -- she even riles up a Shopaholics Anonymous meeting and nearly has everyone running to the mall. But she means well and clearly values friendships and relationships. Still, her character could be seen as reinforcing several broad stereotypes about women, from being fashion-obssessed to being clueless about money. The movie also emphasizes consumption and materialism in a time when many moviegoers are facing severe financial struggles.

Consumerism

The movie is all about shopping and consumerism, so, not surprisingly, there's tons of high-end product placement, with signage and/or products from Asprey, Henri Bendel, Barney's New York, Cartier, Yves Saint Laurent, Prada, Border's, Gucci, and more.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Some social drinking among adults.
