Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this romantic comedy contains little that's potentially worrisome to parents, except perhaps a storyline that explores how some women set their sights on becoming involved with pro athletes and set themselves up for a life of comfort. The subject's played for laughs, but it's elevated and mocked at the same time. The movie willingly stays within the formulaic confines of the genre (including the idea that successful women are incomplete without a man), never once pushing its boundaries. Not that Queen Latifah's legions of fans, which include plenty of teens, would care; she's in nearly every frame and is as affable as ever. There's a little cussing and some drinking in social situations (usually wine), but not much more than that.

Sexual Content

Some kissing; a couple is seen under covers in bed the morning after. A woman talks a lot about snagging a pro athlete boyfriend.

Violence

Loud arguments between couples.

Language

One instance of "bulls--t." Several instances of "Oh my God."

Social Behavior

There are positive messages galore, albeit ones delivered in a formulaic manner: Money isn't everything; a job doesn't define you, it's what you do for a living; beauty is, yes, more than skin deep. But some lessons are muddled. Though it's clear Leslie's status-seeking friend isn't supposed to be a role model, the film's label-flashing does tap into the audience's aspirational side. The products look so tempting.

Consumerism

Throughout the film, one character shops till she drops -- she name-drops constantly (Domenico Vacca, for instance) -- and is always depicted toting around shopping bags. A fair amount of label-flashing in the rest of the film, too: New Jersey Nets, Izod Stadium, Mustang.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Drinking at parties and at restaurants.
