Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that Wish Upon a Star is a 1996 family comedy about two high school teenage sisters who switch bodies. There is sensuality throughout the movie, both girls dress provocatively, and some light kissing scenes, as well as one striptease-style dance in the cafeteria. The somewhat mature handling of sex, making out, and sensuality make it most appropriate for younger teens and up.

Sexual Content

Some sensuality throughout, including multiple scenes of two teen characters kissing. In one instance, a teenage girl is shown with a hickey. The main character, a 17-year-old, is often shown wearing miniskirts, being ogled by others teenagers (and also adult male construction workers), and enjoying it. Another teen character performs a striptease-style dance in a black leather dress and fishnets on a table in the cafeteria in front of the lunchroom. Some discussion of sex, such as when one character asks another if they think a couple is "doing it," and when one teenager tells another she hasn't lost her virginity yet.
