What a Girl WantsClose
Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that What A Girl Wants is light-hearted and fun, but also contains a strong word or two ("bitch," "hell"), and themes surrounding illegitimacy, divorce, and father-daughter relationships. It also contains a fair share of references to high-end goods (Gucci, Prada, Rolls-Royce, etc.) and logos for mundane items like Virgin Atlantic, Tropicana, and Coco Puffs. Drinking is visible over meals and social events. An occasional push and punch occurs, too. There's some inappropriate flirting and references to a man's genitals.
- Sexual Content
- Some mild sexual innuendo, plus inappropriate flirting and light touching, and references to past sexual relationships and reproduction. Daphne's outfits sometimes reveal her midriff. One plot point includes reference to a dog biting a man's "testicles."
- Slapstick humor leads to lots of falling down, and the loss of tempers results in occasional pushing and punching, but no blood or injuries. A rifle is used for skeet shooting.
- Words like "hell," "bitch," and "ass" are audible, but very occasionally.
- Social Behavior
- The film highlights the importance of being true to yourself. The value of family, particularly the special relationship between father and daughter, is also underscored.
- Logos for Virgin Atlantic, Coco Puffs, and Tropicana, and high-end vehicles (Jaguars, Rolls Royces, BMW) are frequently shown. High-end fashion brands like Gucci, Prada, and Ralph Lauren are sometimes referenced and/or visible. Featured music ranges from songs by James Brown to Michelle Branch.
- Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol
- Adult alcohol consumption (wine, champagne) is visible at weddings and other social functions. Hard liquor is often consumed over meetings and/or alone while contemplating life.
