Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that the movie centers around a pampered teen girl whose obsessions with fashion and gossip make her a less-than-ideal heroine. Working with a multicultural group of friends she finds some redemption as the students try to solve a mystery involving a teacher, but his troubles began as result of the heroine's snooping. Brooklyn is depicted as a third-world country to the Manhattan teens.
Very, very mild teenaged flirting and discussing of crushes.
Main character is occasionally impudent towards the adults. Friends work together to help a teacher in trouble, but one of the students was the trigger for the man's problems. Nice father-daughter relationship depicted, and a nasty sibling relationship takes a turn for the better by the final credits.
The main character is an affluent teen girl obsessed with fashion and shopping. Tony private school students are depicted with latest clothes and cell phones, and "scholarship student" is synonymous with "poor." Barney's department store gets name dropped; while getting spa treatments and spending lots of money are glorified as suitable activities for teens.
