Sex & Nudity


The film centers around a young woman who doesn't know who her real father is because her mother slept with 3 different men.

A middle-aged woman slides down to a 25-ish year old man's (who asks her out) thighs in a song sequence. What she is doing is off screen, but his face looks shocked. What she really did was tie a beach towel like a diaper on him. The man fancies her.

Sophie reads her mother's diary to her two friends. It contains various entries about the men that the mother has been with. Whenever she had sex with a guy, she just wrote down three dots to signify it, and while Sophie is reading it, she says "dot dot dot," obviously implying sex.

Sophie says to her mother, "I don't care if you've slept with hundreds of men." She also points out that her mother didn't do the husband and marriage thing - she just did "the baby thing".

A male character is revealed to be gay, and is seen hugging his love interest in a dance sequence.

A mans bare buttcheeks are shown, but this is for humor because he has ridiculous tattoos on them.

A woman places an object between her legs to resemble a man's genitals

***Most comments are not bad. They are played for humor and sex is never shown.*******

Violence & Gore

0/10 none



Minor language, including crap and ass.

Donna calls herself a "reckless little slut".

Several uses of "Oh my God" and ''Hell''

One use of "bugger" and "bollocks".


A middle-aged woman is hung over the morning after a bachelorette party, and she is lying in bed and can barely move.

A character holds an unlit cigar in a few scenes, and in one song, he mentions that his fiancee once thought smoking was his only vice.

Donna's friends offer her some prescription tablets to cure her blocked-up nose and runny eyes.

Some drinking, just mild.

We see an ugly looking fish in a basket with large piranha-like teeth, which may frighten young children.

A woman is seen hanging over a ledge briefly.

Sophie becomes overwhelmed at a party and faints in the middle of a large group of people.

The "Slipping through my fingers" number is very emotional
