Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that The Greening of Whitney Brown is a combination horse tale and fish-out-of-water story about a spoiled rich girl who "finds herself" after her parents lose their fortune and the family moves to a farm. There's nothing too objectionable beyond a bit of iffy language (mostly insults and the like), but the themes and subject matter (middle-school protagonist, mild romance, family drama) make this a better fit for tweens rather than younger elementary-school aged kids.

Sexual Content

Whitney flirts with Ben, as do a couple of other girls. The Brown parents embrace.


Whitney falls into a lake and then off of a tree. Dusty shoots in the direction of Whitney, mistaking her for an animal or an intruder. Bob wreaks havoc on the school dance.


Some mild insulting language like "loser," "liar," "snob," and "sucks."

Social Behavior

Positive messages focus around friendship and family. Kids will pick up on the theme that true friends don't lie about you behind your back or try to sabotage your other relationships. Whitney's growth throughout the movie may demonstrate how money isn't everything.


Featured brands include Mini Cooper, Dell, American Express, Tory Burch shoes, and Apple computers and iPhone.
