Bratz: The Movie | 2007 | PG | - 3.3.2

Four teenage girls from diverse socioeconomic backgrounds look forward to tackling high school together, but two years later they have split into different cliques. Realizing that they miss each other, they band together and try to de-crown the one girl who runs the school with an iron fist (the principal's daughter). With Logan Browning, Nathalia Ramos, Skyler Shaye, Janel Parrish, Chelsea Staub and Jon Voight. Directed by Sean McNamara. [1:40]

SEX/NUDITY 3 - Three teenage girls kiss three teenage boys on the cheek. A teenage boy and a teenage girl nearly kiss but are interrupted.
 Three teenage girls wear bikinis while sunbathing around a swimming pool. A teenage girl sings and dances in a couple of scenes and the lyrics are usually about how hot she is and her costumes are revealing (showing cleavage, bare thighs and bare shoulders). Three teenage girls huddle around another teenage girl who changes her clothes (we see articles of clothing being thrown in the air). Cheerleaders wearing short skirts and low-cut tops that reveal cleavage and bare thighs dance in a few scenes. Four teenage girls wake up and climb out of their beds wearing tank tops and pajama bottoms that reveal cleavage, bare shoulders and bare abdomens and choose clothes from their closets. Teenage girls wear clothing that reveals cleavage, bare shoulders, bare abdomens and bare thighs in varying degrees throughout the movie. A woman tucks chocolates in her bra in several scenes.
 A teenage boy asks a teenage girl out in an insulting manner and calls her "hotty," and a teenage boy says that a teenage girl is "hot." A teenage boy and a teenage girl flirt briefly. Four teenage girls talk about teenage boys and liking them. A pre-teen boy says about a younger girl, "I like 'em feisty." A teenage girl says of herself, "I look so hot."

CAVEATS

Be aware that while we do our best to avoid spoilers it is impossible to disguise all details and some may reveal crucial plot elements.

We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and older reviews are not as complete & accurate as recent ones; we plan to revisit and correct older reviews as resources and time permits.

Our ratings and reviews are based on the theatrically-released versions of films; on video there are often Unrated, Special, Director's Cut or Extended versions, (usually accurately labelled but sometimes mislabeled) released that contain additional content, which we did not review.
