Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that while the pet antics make this movie seem like a great preteen pick, Abby plays a liberated woman who discusses sexual matters frankly. Her telephone relationship with Brian culminates in a prolonged bathtub phone-sex scene.

Sexual Content

Sexual innuendo and one fairly explicit phone sex scene in a bathtub with implied masturbation (though nothing is ever shown).

Violence

Not applicable

Language

Mild and, for the most part, of the bathroom variety (though "f--k" is used on one occasion).

Social Behavior

While the movie tries to depict romance from the position of the average woman, it affirms a lot of stereotypes--especially that concerning "dumb" blondes. Some sexual innuendo.

Consumerism

Not applicable

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Some drinking to excess.
