Funny and clean

Honestly, nothing to worry about in this movie. I recommend it for all ages!! I only give it three stars because the ending of the movie was a bit bland.

Laughs and some sensual moments

This movie had lots of laughs! There are some sensual moments that went over my son's head(now 12) and he was like: "Is this by-sex or orial-sex?" I did not answer! It was not something I would just tell him. But besides that, it is filled with love. I think 16+ could watch this!

This title has:

Great messages
Great role models
Too much sex
