Classic musical romp with dated premise is silly fun.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Gentlemen Prefer Blondes is a classic musical comedy full of dated stereotypes. "Diamonds Are a Girl's Best Friend" is a popular song from the movie but also the main theme, with the importance of finding a rich husband strongly emphasized. Women are mostly portrayed as dumb vixens, men are taken in by a pretty face, and everyone smokes and drinks. But, although sexual innuendo is thrown around a lot, no more than a few sensual kisses are shown. Most tweens and teens won't have much interest unless they're die-hard musical fans.
