A must see for kids 17+! Flashdance is not appropriate for young teens, due to the amount of sex, such as jokes about the size of a guy’s genitalia & characters engaging in premarital sex. The characters need their mouths washed out with soap, too. I watched Flashdance when I was 16, and I wish I had waited a little longer to watch it. Other than those things, Flashdance is an amazing movie, and Alex is a great role model. It’s one of my favorites!
