HILARIOUS Movie! Recommended to 12-14

If your child (12-13 ) is emotionally mature, this movie should be fine. This movie is hilarious HILARIOUS and a happy coming of age I recommend it the ages 12-14 because usually they can handle the cursing and know not to just throw the words around. They also are old enough to understand the plot. Also they are usually emotionally mature which isn’t much of a problem if they aren’t for this movie. It has occasional kissing and small bits of cussing which is also not a horrible thing. No violence whatsoever and it’s a recommended family special Parental guidance is suggested but not exactly mandatory or anything that needs to be monitored

This title has:

Great messages
Great role models
Too much swearing
