Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that you owe it to your kids to do a major reality check on this made-for-TV movie about the adventures of Nickelodeon's hugely popular The Naked Brothers Band. The young stars have no responsibilities whatsoever, live in the lap of luxury (big-screen TVs, indoor clubhouses stocked with games, etc.), and enjoy hordes of fans cheering them on wherever they go. Also, because the plot revolves around the "love life" of 11-year-old leader Nat -- he's devastated when his long-time crush falls for a flashy rock star -- there are more sexual references than you might expect for something aimed at tweens. A girl is called "hot" and "a good kisser," a tween pats a girl's bottom as she walks by (she responds by giggling and asking if she's being "punk'd"), and one scene shows a teen couple cuddled together and kissing passionately. Potty language is frequent (the main offender is the group's youngest member, 8-year-old Alex), partly thanks to a total lack of adult supervision.

Sexual Content

A tween spends most of the movie mooning over his long-time crush, who's starry-eyed over a flashy but totally superficial teen music star. References include mention of a girl being "hot" and "a good kisser," a pat on a girl's bottom from an 11-year-old boy, and one scene showing a teen couple kissing passionately with their bodies pressed together suggestively.

Violence

A couple of brief scuffles that don't result in injury.

Language

No cursing, but lots of potty talk: "butthead," "kick their butts," and an apparent substitution for a red-letter word ("What in the poo-poo sauce?"). Yuck.

Social Behavior

Adult supervision is virtually non-existent; the only adult figure is onscreen for mere minutes of the movie, and he's cast as a goofball (his tween sons often poke fun at him). The movie's plot centers on an 11-year-old's full-blown obsession with his long-time crush, who's smitten with a teen rock star who's not exactly a perfect role model. The tween stars have no responsibilities (school, chores, etc.), but spend their days goofing off in their elaborate club room stocked with a TV, games, and food. Charitable work is placed in a negative light, as the penalty for losing a band competition is a forced monetary donation to a kids' foundation.

Consumerism

The guys enjoy lots of material luxuries, from big-screen TVs to games. The Naked Brothers are also part of an ever-expanding commercial empire, from a TV show to a CD and more.
