Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.

age 14+

More mature than the original

The girls are in college now and go through much more mature experiences than in the original. There is sex and while it isn’t shown there is a discussion afterwards about the condom breaking. This leads to the storyline about a pregnancy scare. Their relationships in general are more mature.

More sexy..inappropriate.

*Christian Review* Few years since I saw this so going by memory. The girls are about 2-3 years older (17/18)than the first movie (obviously in real life but in character as well). They now go to Uni. They seemed about 15 in first film. Has a pre-martial sex scene and the condom breaks, family troubles, death again I think, flirting, sexy outfits, bikinis, one character draws a man nude and perhaps has pre-martial sex with him later (as I heard), young woman goes behind family's back and dates, think may have been a witchcraft scene like the first movie? Don't recommend.
