Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this film includes repeated crude references to sexual activity and desire. These jokes range from sexual activity in fast-motion to the magical remote posing as the protagonist's erect penis. Violence is broadly comic, including a couple of scenes where the protagonist "freeze-frames" an adversary, then beats or kicks him, as well as some falling and slamming of children (the protagonist runs over a child's toy on purpose). The film pushes the envelope on PG-13 language, including one pronounced f-word and another that's cut off (after "mother").

Sexual Content

Sight gag has remote "erect" under Michael's pants; repeated jokes/images of dogs "humping" stuffed animal; reference to "porno," jokes about Michael's "shmeckel," fast-motion sex shown as shadow; allusions to "boobies," a jokey office lecture about sexual harassment includes reference to one as a "slut" Michael slows a jogger to watch her breasts bounce; Jeanine is repeatedly "horny," gag about a woman who undergoes a sex change; Michael tells Marty he doesn't "play for that team" (thinking he's being seduced); jokes about Britney Spears having her 23rd baby and a cloned Michael Jackson "molesting himself."


Injuries played for laughs. Michael kicks Bill in the crotch repeatedly and slaps his boss in the face; someone says he wants to slit his wrists; someone wants to use a sword to cut his "d--k off" a heart attack leads to frantic pain for Michael.


Multiple (more than 10) uses of s-word; several uses of "ass," one f-word; one cut-off "holy motherf-----r" and one obscene finger gesture; repeated use of "shmeckel" (baby Michael's penis); lots of other profanity.

Social Behavior

Though he reforms by the end, Michael is selfish, crude, and calculatedly cruel throughout, picking on rivals, children, and his boss.
