Overall B

If fame is as fickle as winning a lottery, then maybe the best ticket to the top is acceptance into the New York City High School of Performing Arts. Yet even the group of talented music and dance students lucky enough to have earned that prestigious honor are only beginning to pay the price associated with their lofty goals. This remake of the highly successful 1980's film follows a new generation of dreamers.

Why is Fame rated PG? Fame is rated PG by the MPAA for thematic material including teen drinking, a sexual situation and language.

Students experience anxiety and nervousness as they prepare to audition for entry into this prestigious school. Parents are often portrayed as demanding, unsupportive or uninformed. After a girl gets drunk and throws up, a teacher reprimands her actions. Teens are seen performing in nightclubs and bars but presumably do not drink alcoholic beverages there or at a social gathering. A female student rebuffs the actions of a young adult male who makes sexual advances toward her. Several students exchange kisses. Performers are seen in skimpy dance costumes and execute moves that include crotch-grabbing and pelvic gyrations. A student seriously contemplates suicide after facing a disappointment. A student has his money stolen by a con artist. The script includes mild and moderate profanities, vulgarities, slurs and slang terms.
