Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that the characters' diva personas are likely to be copied by tween (and younger) viewers, which can lead to parental headaches over wardrobe, gotta-have gadgets, and attitude. While messages about self-respect, loyalty to friends and family, and accepting responsibility for choices are prominent throughout the movie, they're somewhat overshadowed by a barrage of cheetah-themed outfits and elaborately chic-ified teen lifestyles. Many scenes include strings of catch phrases ("ka-ching, ka-ching, bling, bling, bling" and "cheetahlicious") and body language (raised eyebrows, head gestures, and eye rolls) that are tolerable in the context of the movie but will become tiresome when copied by young fans.
Mild flirting and one brief kissing scene. Some of the girls' outfits are pretty tight, and dance scenes often include booty shaking.
Lots of urban slang (one male character harasses a classmate, insisting she wants to be his "boo," slang for "girlfriend"). Very occasional potty humor (jokes are made when a character steps in dog doo, for example).
The group's music broadcasts anti-prejudice themes and awareness of cultural and personal differences. The Cheetahs value fairness, honesty, and education.
Characters sport the latest high-tech communication gadgets (cell phones, pagers). Plenty of tie-in Cheetah Girls merchandise available.
