  • Two women make fun of another woman's undergarments asking if she wears it or flosses with it.
  • The main couple Sophie and Sky have a really sensual scene on the beach where they kiss and he gets on top of her. However, they get interrupted and pulled apart.
  • The song "Dancing Queen" contains the lyrics "You're a teaser, you turn 'em on".

  • There is slight innuendo/sexual references in some of the musical numbers. The most suggestive is "Does Your Mother Know?"

    • Some suggestive lines, like a woman asking another another woman if she is "getting any."

Violence & Gore

Profanity

  • After Rosie and Donna tease Tanya about her thong underwear, she reiterates with "floss you!". An obvious euphemism of the "F" word.
  • Rosie teases that Tanya's moisturizer contains "donkey testicles"
  • Mild English profanity: "bugger" and "bollocks" show up only once.
  • Very mild for a PG-13.
  • "Hell" and "damn" are said two or three times each. "Ass" is said once along with a woman calling herself a "reckless little slut"
  • "Good lord" and "oh my God" show up once or twice each

Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking

  • Sky is smoking a cigar during "Lay All Your Love On Me". The song references this with the lyrics "you've heard me saying that smoking was my only vice".
  • In the song "Our Last Summer" Bill mentions "flower power". Referring to hippies who would often smoke marijuana.
  • During the "Dancing Queen" sequence Tanya sticks a blunt object in her mouth, referencing a cigar. She and Rosie then act like they are high.
  • Donna's friends offer her some prescription tablets to cure her blocked-up nose and runny eyes.
  • Some drinking, just mild.

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • 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..
  • The "Slipping through my fingers" number is very emotional

Spoilers

The Parents Guide items below may give away important plot points.

Sex & Nudity

  • A young male (Pepper) in a revealing swimsuit advances towards a much more mature woman (Tanya) on a beach during a musical number. He makes a few provocative poses and wants to pursue what happened between them "last night" but she will have none of it. He gets ridiculed by her and put into a makeshift thong without his noticing. Some may see this as sexual, others as a hilarious moment.
    • The premise of the film is that a woman is trying to find out who her father is, but because her mother slept with three men in a short amount of time, she doesn't know for sure who it is. The girl reads from her mother's diaries from the time of the love affairs, but no details are revealed.
  • A young man tries to seduce an older woman: she wraps a towel around his shoulders then moves down off screen and his face suggests that she might be doing something sexual, but we see that she had been tying a towel around his waist in the shape of a diaper.

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • A girl falls apart because she is stressed.
