Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this lowbrow comedy is much raunchier than the teen-friendly dance movies it's spoofing. There's lots of gross-out humor, including a character's head literally going up his butt, a fat man squashing a thinner man in a dance battle, and more. Sexuality includes references to teen pregnancy, penis size, baby daddies/mommas, and pole dancing; a couple also kisses and has off-camera sex. The violence is obviously fake and cartoonish; language ranges from "damn" to "s--t" but isn't extreme.

Sexual Content

Lots of jokes about penis size, interracial dating, condoms, sexually transmitted diseases, teen pregnancy, "baby daddies," and "vaginocology." A teacher named "Ms. Cameltoe" sports an obvious camel toe. In terms of actual sex scenes, there aren't any, but one couple kisses on a few occasions and admits to having (off-camera) sex.


Fake violence is played for laughs, like when the protagonist's mother is killed in a prolonged, jokey car-accident sequence or when someone is squashed by an obese man during a dance-off. A popular nightspot is called "Club Violence," and patrons frequently wave their guns. A character is killed doing a ridiculous acrobatic dance move.


Includes "s--t," "dick," and "ass," as well as milder statements like "what the hell," "oh my God," and "goddamn."

Social Behavior

Nothing is off limits for the movie's spoofy humor, and there are tons of stereotypes -- about everything from the kind of suits that black men wear ("Kool-Aid red" and "Djimon Hounsou black"), to how gay teens (and P.E. teachers) act, to the concept of baby daddies and baby mommas. Lots of potty/gross-out humor.


Non-stop references to other movies.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Characters drink (at nightclubs), and in one scene a father orders a drink for his baby and then gives it to him with a straw (off camera).
