Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that dance-loving teens will probably love this TV movie's updated disco dance moves, but parents may want to exercise some caution when allowing younger teens to watch. The movie features some very strong sexual innuendo, including obvious sounds of sexual activity and cast members climbing in and out of bed in various stages of undress. Words like "piss" and "bitch" are used frequently. Social scenes feature people drinking (beer, cocktails, mixed drinks) and one drunken argument. Lots of logos appear, like Apple, Seattle Coffee, BMW, Mercedes-Benz, and Volkswagon.
