Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that the main issue in Starstruck -- a pop-musical from the early 1980s featuring energetic song-and-dance numbers -- is drinking and smoking. The main character's family runs a pub, so lots of scenes are set around people drinking and smoking and a 14-year-old boy regularly lights up. Expect a bit of swearing (including "s--t") and some brief nudity while a couple is relaxing in bed together.

Sexual Content

A few kisses, some moderate flirting, and a few dances with suggestive movements. A couple relaxes in bed, with brief glimpses of her breast and his butt. A woman stages a publicity stunt where she walks across a tightrope in a costume that makes it appear as if she's topless. #next_pages_container { width: 5px; hight: 5px; position: absolute; top: -100px; left: -100px; z-index: 2147483647 !important; }

Violence

Some heated bickering between friends.

Language

Infreqent language including "s--t," "shag," and "bum.''

Social Behavior

Jackie must learn to be true to herself, even when music promoters try to force her to change her image to meet their idea of what a pop star should be.

Consumerism

Some car brands are mentioned, including Volkswagen and Jaguar.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Several scenes take place in a family-owned pub, where people drink beer and other alcoholic beverages. Some characters smoke cigarettes, including a mature-for-his-age 14-year-old boy.
