Boring plot, language, but positive messages shine through

Honestly, this is the classic plot where a girl who is considered a “nerd” wound up with the wrong group of people who are all about making themselves popular. She runs into all sorts of trouble and not shockingly gets betrayed by a fake friend. This movie is the classic 2010 film. However, I would say that kids 12 and up could see this because it does have language and drinking, and sex is mentioned a couple times, but not awful.
