Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this intentionally stupid, vulgar comedy features incessant beer drinking. Characters are frequently drunk, hung over, throwing up, burping, and peeing in public urinals. Most scenes are set in bars, at parties, or at drinking competitions. Several scenes feature topless women and/or women engaged in sexual activity with lusty or drunken men. Crude humor and language are featured throughout the film, including verbal and visual references to sex/ejaculation, prostitution, Jewishness, obesity, masturbation, flatulence, funerals, social expectations, and boundaries. Characters also smoke cigarettes, cigars, and pot.

Sexual Content

Frequent sexual slang and shots of topless girls, as well as one shot of a man's naked bottom; Barry works as a street prostitute (charging money to "touch it," etc.) alongside a squeaky "gay" prostitute); fantasy and flashback sequences show Barry having raunchy sex; another lively sex scene in a barn; frequently expressed concern that Great Gam Gam is a whore; lab workers stimulate frogs to extract sperm (workers' heads bob, the ejaculate is green); simulated sex with a puppet; references to "BJs" and "HJs" Great Gam Gam "warms up" a sausage in a sexual way.


The film opens with a suicide; frequent slapstick/drunken violence (including competitors slapping and hitting each other); crowd chaos (running and falling); off-screen shootings; following a drinking bout, Barry appears naked and bloody next to a dead deer whose neck he has apparently ripped open (a reference to werewolf movies); murder by drowning in a beer vat.


Multiple f-words; frequent slang for sexual activity/genitals ("bugger," "boink," "tossers and sheep-shaggers," "pork," etc.); frequent uses of other crude language ("hell," "s--t," "ass," "bitch").

Social Behavior

Fierce beer-drinking competitions, topless girls, murder, and a broken marriage -- all contributing to the goal of abject drunkenness. Some jokes about Finklestein's Jewishness, and a mention of Barry's Indian background (connected to a "cowboy").


Not applicable.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Beer and more beer (plus some other liquor and ram's urine-drinking); Finklestein smokes pot (and pot smoking pops up again later); cigars and cigarettes are smoked.
