Parents' guide

April 21, 2006|By ORLANDO SENTINEL


Rating -- PG-13 for brief strong language and some sexual references.

What it's about -- Conniving bumpkin and Middle Eastern terrorist vie for top prize in an American Idol clone TV show, with the American president as a judge.

The Kid Attractor Factor -- Mandy Moore and Chris Klein are two of the leads.

Good lessons/bad lessons -- Some prizes aren't worth doing anything to win. And satire is too tricky for some filmmakers.

Violence -- Mostly played for comic effect, but terrorists are involved.

Language -- A little raw, here and there.

Sex -- Behind closed doors.

Drugs -- There's a bar in one scene.

Parents advisory -- Fairly wholesome spoof of American values, 2006.
