Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this direct-to-DVD production is an attempt to skew the Legally Blonde movie's signature of girly smarts to the younger set, and that the girls are lauded not just for beauty but for brains as well. Students on scholarship at a snooty Beverly Hills private school lie to cover up the facts of their economic situations, though only the nice characters are "poor." Conspicuous consumption is stamped into every frame. Students sneak into a teacher's office, and eventually the teacher covers up for them.

Sexual Content

Some flirting and crushes among teens.


Not applicable


One "crap" from teenage girls.

Social Behavior

The movie emphasizes that brains are as important as looks and reminds characters (and thus viewers) that it's more important to have true friends than "cool" ones. Private school students on scholarship are treated as second-class citizens by the school's mean kids in an obvious statement about skewed values, but when the villains get their comeuppance, what's their punishment? Enrollment in public school, which is presented as chaotic.


Nonstop, as a signifier for the "blonde" mentality of these otherwise very smart girls. Shopping on Rodeo Drive and casual dialogue gives exposure to Dior, BCBG, Jimmy Choo, Versace, and more. Jansport backpacks, however, gets the prize for most obvious placement.
