Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that this movie is filled with the kind of parental concerns that aren't factored into the MPAA's rating system. The main characters -- young teenage girls -- sneak out of the house after promising not to. They make a date with a man they met on the Internet with the plan of getting him to buy one of them a drink. They then sneak into a club and drink alcohol. One girl secretly watches a boy undress (from the rear, nudity off screen). They vandalize property, imprison a security guard, drive without licenses, make an overweight girl feel bad about herself. Many characters lie, including adults. One of the girls loses a boyfriend by refusing to "hook up" with him but apparently brags to her friends that she did. There is also some bathroom humor and intrusive product placement.
- Sexual Content
- Kissing/making out, references to "hooking up," cleavage, etc. Implied nudity (off screen).
- Mild tension and peril; skateboard/car crashes/wipe-outs. Some slapping-type confrontations between both girls and girls and boys.
- "Hook up," "oh my God," "hell."
- Social Behavior
- Although some of the characters' problematic behavior has consequences (getting caught trying to order a drink, for example), plenty doesn't, and overall there's not a lot of responsibility taken or learned during the course of the movie.
- Some intrusive product placement from brands like Old Navy.
- Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol
- Teens sneak into club, and a 14-year-old orders "Sex on the Beach" at the bar -- but she's carded and gets soda instead.
- Age appropriate
- Not an issue
- Depends on your kid and your family
- Not appropriate for kids of the age most likely to want to see it
