Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that the music and movement will keep preteens entertained, but the sexual material and profanity may be too mature for the youngest. Teens will enjoy the energy of it, but the music is dated and the central conflict (to hold a dance or not) is a bit hard for teens to buy.
Teens talk about ordering diaphragms through the mail, masturbation, and going all the way. Two teens are seen getting dressed after they've obviously had sex. We see bare male bums in a shower. There are numerous comments about the preacher's daughter's promiscuity.
Fisticuffs. One bloody nose and one person knocked out.
Fairly mild, including "asses" and "bulls--t." The worst is probably "bitch in heat."
To keep fighting for what you believe in... or keep dancing for what you believe in.
Drugs / Tobacco /
Teens talk of "sniffing spray starch" as a means of getting high. The cool kids smoke cigarettes, drink, and even use a little pot (though smoking dope is mostly frowned upon).
