Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that this is less outrageous than the reality TV show My Super Sweet Sixteen thanks to a plotline in which the birthday girls discuss raising money for charity. But you can still count on plenty of scenes of girls begging their daddies to get out their checkbooks for extravagant party plans and a whole lot of backstabbing from snotty, cliquey girls you're supposed to have fun hating. There are also plenty of plugs for designer clothes and sports cars, the bands Hello Goodbye and Pretty Ricky play, two girls from the reality show come to the party, and a date takes place at Chili's restaurant. A bone is thrown to charity work, and one main character is vegan (yet eats lots of ice cream?).
- Sexual Content
- One kiss and some basic "you're cute" flirting in the high school halls. Pretty Ricky's song (which plays while the credits roll) is about having sex.
- Not applicable
- Not applicable
- Social Behavior
- Plenty of backstabbing and snotty behavior, but it's made fun of to a degree. While a party is supposed to be for charity, the girls spend most of their time trying to one-up each other and begging Daddy for more and more money. The dads always cave in. Decent cast diversity; the best friends are African American and Caucasian.
- Bands Pretty Ricky and Hello Goodbye play at parties. A date takes place at Chili's restaurant. The girls spend most of their time spending money shopping and buying things for their parties. MTV is mentioned, and girls from the original reality show come to the central birthday party.

- A caterer makes special drinks for the underaged partiers that look like -- but aren't -- alcoholic.
