Sex & Nudity

There is no explicit nudity or sex scenes.

There is a bachelorette party scene in a strip club where a male stripper is shown, and he is sexually rubbing his self against another gir but no nudity or racy scenes are shown. There are also a few other male entertainers in the club, all of who are in shimmery, skin-tight short underwear, usually with no shirts on.

The bachelorette party scene shows Anne Hathaway's character doing exotic dancing on stage; in this shot she is wearing a skin-tight policeman's uniform with very tight mini-shorts on.

Anne Hathaway is briefly shown on a video wearing a bikini top and acting sensually.

Kate Hudson is briefly seen with a wedding dress that is not zipped up and we see her black bra.

Violence & Gore

A girl slaps another girl. One of the brides tackles the other from behind as she is walking down the aisle. Overall, there's just a lot of rude behavior given and received on both ends.


There were several words used such as bitchy (used 3x) and ass. There was also one use of mother f, but that's exactly what they said.

It is assumed that one of the girls has had too much to drink from the night before when she wakes up with a hangover.

One girl has an embarrassing video made of her drinking too much tequila and behaving out of control on spring break.

There are several shots in the movie of various people with any assortment of drinks.

There is a bride at the beginning of the movie who is extremely drunk and exhibits embarrassing behavior at her wedding reception.

One of Emma's co-workers, a main character in the movie, is implied to be a heavy drinker, as she behaves like one in many scenes.

There aren't really any frightening scenes, but the two main girls get into many arguments and a few fist fights. In another scene, they both chase a different girl around a store. These are all intended to be humorous, though.

Anne Hathaway's character's skin turns bright orange after a bad experience at a tanning salon. This may look a little frightening to younger kids, but again, it is supposed to be funny. The same applies for Kate Hudson's character, who has blue hair at one point.

The girls' bachelorette party at a bar gets a little out of hand when Anne Hathaway starts dancing very provocatively onstage.

This movie should have been PG-13 without a doubt.
