A little too much teen romance for young kids

This movie has a generic Cinderella plot line. The Stepmother is always drinking alcohol. Her daughters are ridiculed for their weight, looks and intelligence. There is a heavy focus on a persons looks with terms like hot, sexy, dog and so on. We did not feel it was appropriate for our 8-10 year olds. The music and dancing were good. And the message about following your dreams was appreciated.
