What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that the movie features cruel judgments about body size and fashion. Characters are materialistic and catty (usually as comedy, though some hurtful comments are also made). Characters use mild language (s--t) and drink alcohol. Lots of mentions of high-end fashion brands. Younger kids won't be interested, since the subject matter won't mean anything to them.
