Not for young innocent minds

Whoever rated this G is a pervert. They shouldn't have swearing, bleeped out or otherwise in a G movie. But the sexuality is beyond tolerable for a young audience. Especially the coach wearing a stripper devil costume and making all the girls bow down to her on stage as she steps over them and grabs at them aggressively. 😡 My 9 year old daughter picked this for a movie night at home and I said, well it's rated G and the Netflix trailer showed nothing bad about it, so sure! Boy was I mistaken. Netflix has a bad habit of including a lot of sex and gender distortion into their programming recommend for kids. This isn't the first time either.

Inappropriate dancing by children

I am surprised and disappointed that this movie was allowed to be featured because of the sexual-nature of the dance moves by children in a scene. It was described as a comedy, but it felt very serious. The dance instructor had a very negative and unkind attitude in general during a lot of the first half, or so, of the movie. I do not recommend the movie mostly for the first reason, but the stressful undertones were unpleasant and didn't fit the description it was given.
