Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that this dance movie targeting teens -- especially fans of the original Step Up -- is age-appropriate for older tweens. There's little sexual material, swearing, or violence.
- Sexual Content
- Pretty mild for the dance-movie genre. Some suggestive dance moves (all in good, clean fun, though). Lots of flirtations but no sex scenes. Two couples kiss, one quickly, the other slowly and somewhat passionately.
- Only one truly violent scene, but quite visceral: A teen gets beaten up by his dance enemies and is choked, thrown, punched, and kicked in a rage-filled moment.
- Fairly clean, except for rare use of "titties," "ass," and "damn." As an insult, the words "tuck you" are written on a character's stomach.
- Social Behavior
- Andie lies to her guardian about her whereabouts, and she's betrayed, even victimized, by her old friends. Still, one of them realizes the error of her ways and helps her. And her new crew is supportive and helpful. One character is so enraged by Andie's perceived disloyalty that he beats up her new paramour/dance partner.
- Very little: A Run DMC poster is visible, and one character wears a Yankees cap.
- Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol
- A bit character takes a swig from what appears to be beer, then pours it over his head.
- 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
