Parents' guide

August 11, 2006

Step Up

Rating -- PG-13

What it's about -- Kid from the streets finds some focus when he is sentenced to work, and dance, at a school for the arts.

The Kid Attractor Factor -- It's all about kids, and hotties Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan star.

Good lessons/bad lessons -- Talent trumps discipline, drive and ambition.

Violence -- Fistfights and a shooting.

Language -- Pretty clean, for a PG-13.

Sex -- Suggested.

Drugs -- None, not even in the underworld parties.

Parents advisory -- It's got the Disney brand on it, but the message, a disdain for what it takes to make it in the performing arts, is idiotic.
