Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that the teens in this movie are inseparable from their video phones and sometimes border on voyeurism with their exploitation of peers' embarrassing moments. In one scene, for instance, a girl snaps a photo of her classmate's partially exposed thong underwear and emails it to the entire student body to humiliate her. While there's nothing beyond a kiss and slow dances to see, teens use terms like "do her and dump her" and "hump and dump" to refer to potential casual sex. The main character's rebellious teen behavior (sneaking out to attend a party, lying to parents, etc.) is cast in a humorous light, but she does learn valuable lessons about listening to her conscience.
- Sexual Content
- Teens talk about sex in casual terms like "do her and dump her" and "hump and dump," but physical contact is limited to slow dances and one kiss. The main character swoons over the school's most popular boy, describing him as a "hottie" and vowing to do anything to get him to notice her.
- Not applicable
- Rare use of "hell," "damn," and "ass."
- Social Behavior
- The story centers on the social hierarchy of high school and the pressures to fit in with the elitist "cool" crowd. While disobeying family rules is made light of, there are some valuable lessons about listening to your conscience and not giving into peer pressure.
- Not applicable
- Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol
- One scene shows teens in a bar setting drinking what appears to be beer. A girl downs a bottle of her friend's allergy medicine after suffering an allergic reaction to nuts.
