Great Teen Movie!
The Clique is a great movie for teenage girls. The movie taught me how not to handle bullies, thanks to Claire's irresponsible approach of dealing with Massie Block. This movie made up my childhood, and lets be honest, I still watch it whenever I'm bored to this day. There is some language in it, but its nothing your teen daughter probably hasn't already heard in school before. The worst cuss word they use is bitch. There is a lot of consumerism, because the girls go to an expensive private school in New York. Their parents are wealthy (SPOILER: MOST of the girls parents are wealthy...), and do spoil them. The girls are sassy, but that's the whole point of the movie. The plot is about sassy rich girls! It's basically the younger, more appropriate version of Mean Girls! Some people say that teenagers will find this movie childish after a while, but I still love it, and so does my 17 year old sister. In the end of the movie, Massie, the main character, wants to pop out of a cake for her crushes birthday, and her outfit is somewhat questionable, considering the fact that she's 12 years old. She has a mini skirt on, ridiculous dangling silver earrings, and a black crop top that reads, "I <3 Chris". Lets just say, she looks obnoxious. It is pretty slutty, but if you're concerned about your kids watching this part, it's pretty easy to make it clear to them that her outfit is not appropriate, especially for her age. That's what my parents said to me when I first watched this film. Another scene that you may want to skip through would be the scene when Claire has her first day of school. In art class, Alicia reaches over and "accidentally" spills red paint on the back of Claires pants. Everyone thinks that Claire got her period. It's not inappropriate, because it's something completely, 100% natural that will happen to every girl out there at some point. But if your daughter/son is younger and you do not want them asking questions about what's happening, you can easily go to the next scene. Overall this movie is fantastic, and in the end, I took something away from each character. Massie's leadership, Claire's kindness, Alicia's loyalty, Dylan's humor, and Kristen's Intelligence. P.S, if you loved this movie, there is a book series, which is just as good, if not better, than the movie!
