Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that the theme of disguise creates slapstick moments of sexual tension. There is also tension at home, as the family is still mourning the loss of the father figure. Teen daughter Becca (Emily Osment of Hannah Montana) can say some pretty mean things to her mom, Wendy, but the two make amends in the end. Wendy also has a habit of fibbing, which gets her into pretty big trouble.

- The word "hussy" is used by a father. Becca is disrespectful to her mother, saying: "You suck, Mom." She apologizes later. Italian speakers might get an earful from Lorenzo, who curses in his mother tongue.
