Lizzie McGuire (Hilary Duff), a graduating junior high school student, travels to Rome, Italy, with her
classmates and a chaperone. She and her best friend (Adam Lamberg) vow to seek out adventure, and indeed the ancient city is full of
surprises, including a handsome young pop star who thinks Lizzie looks exactly like his singing partner. Lizzie's thoughts are represented
on the screen by an animated version of herself. Also with Robert Carradine, Hallie Todd and Jake Thomas. Directed by Jim Fall. [1:30]
SEX/NUDITY 3 - Several kisses: A young woman kisses a young man, a young man kisses a young woman's hand, a young man kisses
a young woman's cheeks a few times, and a young woman kisses a young man's cheek. A young man and a young woman hold hands and look at
each other admiringly, a young man and a young woman flirt in a few scenes, and a young man and a young woman practice dancing with hip
thrusts and shoulder dips. A woman slaps her buttock and asks a man, "do you want a piece of that?" A young man and a young woman lean on
each other while sleeping in an airplane. A young woman dances in an extended scene. Young men talk about having the ability to attract
women. Some young women wear tight-fitting outfits that reveal their cleavage, bare abdomens, lower back, and bare shoulders.
VIOLENCE/GORE 2 - A woman kicks two security guards and they fall to the ground. A woman squeezes a man's hand and he
winces, a young woman hits a young man on the head to wake him up, a girl shoves a boy off a chair (we hear a thump when he hits the
floor), and a woman pokes a man in the chest a few times. A young man tries to talk to a young woman and he's dragged away by police
officers. A young woman spins around while dancing, loses her balance and falls into a bathtub, a young woman trips and falls in front of
a crowd of people, a young woman trips and falls into a curtain, which she pulls down -- it lands on a group of people. A young woman
yells at another young woman, unzips her graduation gown and yells some more. Also, a young woman yells at a young man. A young woman
appears to be very nervous and uncomfortable in front of a crowd of people. People in a crowd scream uncontrollably and swoon at
celebrities. An animated version of Lizzie is squashed by a wheel of cheese, crushed by a heavy book, and flattened by a TV.
