A lot or a little?

The parents' guide to what's in this movie.

Positive Messages

The movie's focus on romantic love and matchmaking sends the message that coupledom is a primary goal for teens and adults. But the message that family comes first -- before boyfriends, etc. -- is loud and clear.

Positive Role Models & Representations

The kids in the movie are squeaky clean representations of teenagers. Even though the twins cut class several times and disobey their parents multiple times, they do so with good intentions. When they fall in love with the same boy, they turn against each other. But then they realize the folly of their ways and band together in a united cause. The father works too much, which causes his wife to leave him.

Violence

The film opens with a car crash -- no injuries. A high schooler beats up another student.

Sex

The film is all about matchmaking and falling in love. There's hand holding, couples pairing up/sitting near each other, and slow dancing. The twins have deep kisses with their dates, and their parents kiss at the beginning and the end.

Language

During class, students giggle when a student stumbles on "breast" while reciting a line from Shakespeare.

Consumerism
Drinking, Drugs & Smoking

What parents need to know

Parents need to know that this cheesy romantic comedy is squeaky clean and family friendly. That said, it's completely unbelievable and full of unrealistic notions about romance and love. Expect a bit of teen kissing and some mild misbehavior.

Okay

This movie is fine. There wasn't enough explanation behind how the twins dad was cupid to make it believable, and it kind of made it look as though it was... Continue reading

What's the story?

Emma and Lily Valentine are fraternal twins who have the gift of matchmaking. Their relationship is tested when they fall in love with the same boy. Meanwhile, their parents' relationship is falling apart. The sisters indulge in a little bit of competition, a dose of magic, and learn a couple of surprises along the way as they ensure that everyone ends up with their rightful match.

Is it any good?

Tweens and teens looking for a swoony love story with little racy content will gloss over the fact that it’s filled with ridiculous plot points and frustrating twists and turns that make no sense. From the first scene, when a young woman is rescued from a car crash by a romantic figure who appears out of nowhere to the next moment when they're kissing and evidently madly in love, the fantasy elements of this straight-to-DVD movie fails to impress.
