Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that a main character in this movie, Lola, is threatened with violence and discriminated against because she's a transvestite and drag queen. Though this film stays light and quirky, it still raises very real questions about how far tolerance and acceptance goes, especially of boys who don't act in a masculine way. Both Charlie and his fiancé Nicola cheat on each other -- though neither has sex. Also, when Lola says she's a transvestite and drag queen, some teens are bound to ask what the difference is.

Sexual Content

Lots of talk about boots being "irresistible, tubular sex." Some light kissing between Charlie and Lauren and Charlie and Nicola. Lola, a transvestite and drag queen, flirts with Don. Don yells come-ons to Lola before he knows she's a man. Brief and innocent sexy dancing.

Violence

Men harass and seem to be threatening Lola. Lola, trying to protect herself from the toughs, accidentally hits Charlie in the face with her shoe. Don menaces Lola and writes anti-gay epithets in the factory.

Language

Very little cursing, aside from British slang, like "bugger," "bloddy," and "sod off." Lola says the company may go "tits up." One use of "s--t."

Social Behavior

Despite their obvious differences, Lola and Charlie strike up a warm and close friendship. Lola puts up with a lot of discriminatory and threatening behavior because of her gender presentation, and it makes her depressed. Nicola cheats on Charlie. Charlie kisses Lauren, even though he's engaged to Nicola.

Consumerism

Not applicable

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Considerable drinking, mostly of vodka by Lola. There's also drinking of beer in pubs and drinking of champagne.
