A lot or a little?
The parents' guide to what's in this music.
What parents need to know
Parents need to know that the soundtrack is questionable for younger kids in a different way than the drama of the same name (the movie has far more sexuality and drug overshadowing than the CD does, for example). The soundtrack is laced with some profanity and a few sexually suggestive lyrics, and jealousy, social climbing, and discrimination are the prevailing themes.
What's the story?
Is it any good?
Despite some big-name artists and several booty-shakin' beats, this soundtracks lacks cohesiveness and doesn't tell you anything at all about the movie. A good soundtrack should at least make you curious about a film, but you'd probably only pick up this album if you loved the movie (which could be the case) -- or if the songs had some actual meaning for you (which probably isn't the case since they don't really talk about anything). The songs are repetitive and unoriginal and definitely fall flat without the accompanying cool dance moves from the silver screen. At least there's no doubt that they'll make you want to dance.
