Movie Night Suggestion
If you are looking for a good, clean video rental here is a new suggestion for you: Bride Wars (rated PG; see trailer for the movie here). I did not see this in the theater and was only mildly interested in renting it, but was pleasantly surprised at how much I liked it. The plot actually had some good themes and messages, especially for girls. And I particularly liked the ending -- it was grounded and more fulfilling than a formula movie would have been.
Drawbacks: 1. The two main characters are living with their boyfriends/finaces--but there are no bedroom scenes. 2. There is a scene at a strip club where a guy is shown in his underwear, but otherwise everyone else is clothed. 3. Short skirts, strapless wedding dresses, and other non-For the Strength of Youth compliant outfits are worn (still, pretty mainstream for modern standards).
