Makes good role models seem bad!
My two daughters had asked about seeing this, but after seeing alone there is no way! It hits the ground running with drugs, alcohol, and sex references in the first few minutes. Change the main characters from women to men and you have another stereotypical sex & drugs comedy. From multiple images of male genital drawings, to simulated sex acts between people, and even people and inanimate objects, to glamorizing drugs and alcohol, to police who just don't care, you need to take heed for even the maturest teens. All in all it is one stereotype after another. The entire movie revolves not around a house being sold, but around two 40+ year old women who want to recapture their partying teenage years. There is even a mud fight between the two sisters, and in the end the "sisters" parents tell them how much they hate having them as children and that parenting is horrible and not the blessing it is made out to be. The worse message is the "good" sister was made out to b a "boring" teen for doing things like donating to charity, and taking a handicap guy to the prom. Don't get me wrong, if you are 40+ there are lots of scenes you will relate to and laugh at, but if you are younger than there are things you won't get. The couples behind me and beside me could not figure out what Dep Hair Gel was and they were both in their late 20s & 30s. Adults will get the message in the end that you can't go back, and we all have to grow up sometime. Still, it is just not a good movie for kids or teens.
