Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that You're Invited to Mary-Kate and Ashley's Party celebrates a differently themed party in each episode, from a costume event to a school dance. The recognizable twins play themselves and, surrounded by a cast of friends, sing, dance, and plan their way to ultimate party success. Often their efforts take them on location to different venues, and there are no adults to either guide or stand in their way, which accounts for their seemingly unlimited freedom. As such, it's worth noting to younger kids that the real world works differently (no impromptu air travel to see the Mall of America, for instance), but there's no cause for worry in the rest of the content, which focuses on friendship, adventure, and having fun.
The movies celebrate the carefree joys of being a kid, enjoying friendship, and experiencing new things. At the same time, though, they paint a pretty unrealistic picture of independence through the young stars' unfettered travels and adventures as they follow their big imaginations.
