This movie is rated PG 13 for some sex related conversation
This movie does have some fun extras such as the ability to put the words on the screen so one can sing along.
This movie is good. The casting could have been a little better. Actors and actresses were cast in this movie that are not known as singers so the singing is only fair. In my opinion, Streep overacts while she's trying to sing.
