This movie was rated PG. There is some cussing in this movie, it includes: d***, a**, and h*** a couple of times. There is some kissing in this movie. There is also a picture of a topless pregnant lady with her arm strategically hiding her breasts. I give this movie a 4/5.
Did you know that Kari is BFF with Haylie?!
