"Dammit," "ass" (twice).

Consumerism

BlackBerries are carried around, referred to on numerous occasions.

What parents need to know

Parents need to know that Double Wedding is a TV movie from the Lifetime network starring former Sister, Sister stars Tia and Tamera Mowry. This fairly tame romantic comedy about mistaken identities has some mild adult content, making it best for tweens and up. There are a few lingering kisses, talk about adult relationships, and some innuendo, including a few jokes comparing car magazines to porn and calling someone's assistant a pimp. There's also some moderate casual drinking and some mild language, including "ass" and "damn."

What's the story?

Deanna (Tia Mowry), a workaholic lawyer, and her twin sister, Danielle (Tamera Mowry), an up-and-coming pastry chef, are in romantic slumps. Determined to find dates for their grandparents' upcoming wedding, the duo enters a competition to find boyfriends. Unbeknownst to them, the two begin dating the same eligible bachelor, Tate (O.T. Fagbenle), who has no idea he's actually seeing two women at the same time. As the wedding date gets closer, and things start heating up between Danielle and Tate, it's only a matter of time before everyone realizes that twins can be double trouble.

Is it any good?

DOUBLE WEDDING is pretty much everything you'd expect from a made-for-TV romantic comedy about twins accidentally dating the same man: It's silly, cheesy, and really predictable. But it's also surprisingly entertaining at times. The characters are likable, and there's an attempt to add some side plots into the mix to keep it interesting. Unfortunately, the length ends up being the downfall, and the plot starts to wear thin by the second half, keeping it from being a true guilty pleasure.

Fans of romantic comedies looking for a silly, light watch might enjoy this flick. But, even though it's most likely OK for older tweens and teens to watch, they'll probably be happy to skip this one and watch something more geared to the high school crowd.

Talk to your kids about ...

  • Families can talk about having a twin. What do you think it's like to have a twin? 

  • Danielle and Deana's father left their family when they were growing up. Do you think that had an effect on how they behave in relationships as an adult? Why,or why not?

  • Do you like romantic comedies? Which one is your favorite?
