Cute chick flick!!

Excellent film starring Alexis Bledel who plays an upbeat, determined young woman named Ryden Malby. At first, she has everything figured out...until she finds out that her friend-turned-enemy had gotten her dream job instead of her. Heart broken and unemployed, she moves back to live with her wacky family until things start to pick up again...if ever. Meanwhile, her childhood friend Adam supports her all the way and develops a few feelings for her while Ryden is attracted to the cute somewhat older guy next door which eventually turns Adam away. Ryden finally realizes what's truly important to her and who makes her happy the most. Yes it;s cliche and the ending is happy but it's still a very cute movie with a great role model, excellent characters (Rydens dad played by Michael Keaton keeps things funny!) and a few things to learn from this story. Language includes many uses of sh*t, one "f" word and few common curse words throughout. Violence is mild and mostly humorous - a cat gets run over, some family arguments and a comical fight when a man is taken to jail. Sexual content includes some kissing, a woman heavily makes out with her neighbor on their first date and he blurts out the phrase "f-me" when he finds out they're being watched by Ryden's family. Some light social drinking. Great messages in this film, perfect for 12 and up if the language isn't a big issue for the child

This title has:

Great messages
