Motherly Advice: Even though the filters do an excellent job of cutting out a lot of truly filthy language here, the mind does a lot of guessing on it's own with this one. Olive wears immodest outfits in just about every scene in the movie and I have to ask, "Is this really realistic for High school these days? I have a hard time believing schools have no dress code at all anymore." Also, there were some open references to one of the (adult aged) characters getting chlamydia from one of the teachers. Lastly is the topic of Olive's parents. Her parents are very 'cool' but also very uninvolved in what was going on. I don't have teenagers yet, but I don't think I would be okay with my daughter handling these issues without some adult help...or at least some advice! So, because of a scantily clad wardrobe and heavy sexual topics I'm putting this movie as a PG-17.
