Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that, like all of the Step Up films, Step Up Revolution is a fun, fairly harmless trifle (unless you consider fantastic dance sequences featuring skimpily clad dancers dangerous), even though it's not particularly deep or memorable. Tween and teen girls will be drawn to the tale of a good girl who meets an edgy guy and wants to join his dance crew -- you can expect some displays of rebellion, usually in the form of a disruptive flash mob and some graffiti tagging, and plenty of sensual dance moves. There's some social drinking and a bit of swearing ("a--hole," "damn," one "s--t"), too.
Sexy dance moves aplenty, as well as some innuendoes and kissing.
A fistfight erupts after a particularly aggressive dance sequence. In one scene, dancers use smoke canisters while wearing gas masks and police vests; it's not violent, but it's eerie/creepy.
Language includes one "s--t," "damn," "a--hole," "ass," "hell," "oh my God," and "crap."
The movie's main take-aways are to defend what you believe in and aim high to reach your goals. That said, the flash mob squad at the heart of the film does take pride in breaking laws to get the attention they want on YouTube.
Labels spotted or mentioned fairly often include Apple, YouTube, Nike, Dell, Cadillac, and more.
Drugs / Tobacco /
Social drinking, usually beer or wine, in dance clubs and bars.
