So cute... shame its filthy

This movie is adorable, with every awkward boy/girl moment mixed with revenge on the mean girl ending you crave. It's heart warming in that way, and how nice to have a movie for those non- girly girls and something celebrating odd balls. But for a movie "going against the grain" they sure fell right in line with gratuitous language (sh**, da**, a**, di**) and obsession with sex. Be prepared for mocking virginity, crass comments about breasts, obsessing about getting laid, and off color jokes. Its very cute, but your kids might need to be old enough that you're ready to talk about sexual positions, multiple partners, masterbation...

This title has:

Too much sex
Too much swearing

It’s a modern fairy tale of a girl . It could be enjoyable and fun.
