Her mission becomes to turn a band of social outcasts (Emma Stone, Kat Dennings, Katharine McPhee, Rumer Willis and Dana Goodman) into desirable women. Also with Christopher McDonald and Beverly D'Angelo. Directed by Fred Wolf. [1:38]

SEX/NUDITY 6 - It is implied that a woman performs oral sex on a man: we see her go down on her knees, we see him look down and then we hear her talking about it later.
 A group of young women pose suggestively for a calendar: one is nude from the waist down and has a bush that she is pruning between her legs (no genitals are visible). A woman takes off her towel and we see her bare buttocks -- her crotch region is covered when someone moves in front of her. A woman walks around topless: we see her bare back and the reactions of people around her. A woman wears very short shorts (we see the lower part of her buttocks). Scenes feature women in a low-cut tops, short skirts or other revealing clothing, and women are shown playing games while wearing revealing bikinis at the Playboy Mansion; bare-chested men are shown also.

 People dance close and suggestively during a slow dance. Women dance suggestively and smack each other's buttocks. A woman washes a car suggestively. A man wears pasties over his nipples to keep a woman from twisting them (he gets erotic pleasure from the pain).

A man buys calendars of women in suggestive poses and buys two, stating that this is in case one gets ruined (implying masturbation). A young woman wonders if a man is gay. A woman talks about her "manhole" (suggesting her vagina). A young woman tells another young woman to be careful what you research when it comes to men and then points to her pregnant belly, implying that's how she became pregnant. A group of young women talk about another young woman's virginity and throw a party to "sacrifice the virgin." A woman talks about making penis cookies with her friends and painting each other's bodies. A group of young women selling hot-dogs make suggestive references. A woman talks about being naked in the middle of a magazine and wanting people to "unfold her." A person talks about "making love to the camera" while taking another person's picture. Young women sing the song "Like a Virgin," with lyrics that include "touched for the very first time." A woman talks about nipples. A woman talks about a brothel and talks about "T & A." People sing a sexually suggestive song about large buttocks. A woman wears a shirt that says "Delicious" on the front.
 It implied that a young woman has a genital piercing when a metal detector goes off when waved around that region.

VIOLENCE/GORE 3 - A young woman stands over a manhole cover and lets the steam blow up her dress but the steam is hot and her legs are burned and we see them red and raw later.
 A cat attacks a man and sinks its claws into his chest; we see the skin being pulled and the man cries out in pain. Several young women are struck in the breasts by other young women. A young woman bites a young man.
 A young woman falls over a table and bumps her head; she is unhurt. A woman is struck in the head with a falling object, she falls into shrubbery, and appears unhurt.

Our Ratings Explained

A CAVEAT: We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and some of our early standards were not as stringent as they are now. We therefore need to revisit many older reviews, especially those written prior to 1998 or so; please keep this in mind if you're consulting a review from that period. While we plan to revisit and correct older reviews our resources are limited and it is a slow, time-consuming process.

INAPPROPRIATE ADS? We have little control over ads since we belong to ad agencies that serve ads automatically; a standing order should prevent provocative ads, but inappropriate ads do sneak in.
