  • Cast
Tracy Flick (Reese Witherspoon) appears to have the election for student council president sewn up until one of her teachers, Mr. McAllister (Matthew Broderick), rounds up a worthy opponent: a popular and naïve varsity football player (Chris Klein) whose knee injury has him sidelined for the season. Tracy is desperate to win the race at any cost. But Mr. McAllister is just as determined to see Tracy -- a textbook overachiever -- soundly defeated.

Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that almost everyone in this dark comedy engages in extremely iffy behavior as they set out to win at all costs. Election also includes questionable sexual situations (statutory rape, extramarital affairs, and teenage sex), foul language, and an irreverent attitude toward religion. All in all, both teens and adults appear untrustworthy and unethical, but older teens may be mature enough to watch this film.

Sexual Content

Inappropriate relationship between a teacher and student, infidelity by the main character, main character watches porn, teen sex (including oral), semi-graphic sex.

Violence

Humorous skiing accident and bee sting incident.

Language

Sexually explicit language.

Social Behavior

Pretty much everyone in film serves as a negative role model. Characters are driven to unethical acts by greed, jealousy, and lust. This film makes it difficult to divide characters into "good" and "bad." Even the "good" characters make choices that throw their status into question.

Consumerism

Coke and Pepsi placement.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Brief moments of teen drinking and pot.
