Of course my 10 year old (very mature) was chomping at the bit to see this movie. Zac Efron's in it, after all. I probably should have pre-screened. Even she said, afterwards, that there were times when "it was totally inappropriate for her." This made me cringe a bit, that I didn't make sure. I just thought to myself, how horrible could it be? Though she's heard words like "shit" and "bitch" before...I was not prepared for "dick" and "bastard" and a few others. Plus a reference to the size of the bully's penis. The health class scene was a bit over her head 'cuz though she has the basic facts of life, she did not know what condoms were or what they did to prevent pregnancy. (she'll get all that in this year's health class.) This evening we'll discuss the overall message, but the girls throwing themselves at Zac Efron's character was a little nauseating, much like the scenes in "Can't Buy Me Love," from the 80's with Patrick Dempsy.
The students all dress and act much older than real life teenagers.
