Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this remake of a 2007 British comedy leaves no subject untouched in its quest to make its audiences laugh, including death, deception, and drugs. The humor's pretty adult, including a secret about a relative's sexuality, although the film has a fair helping of potty humor (thanks to Tracy Morgan) as well. There's plenty of swearing (including "s--t," "f--k" and "asshole"), and some of the movie's most pointed humor comes from the consequences of popping hallucinogenic pills. Though all played for laughs, the sibling rivalry, blackmail, and insults don't make for the best humor for impressionable kids.

Sexual Content

Sexual innuendos fly; a guest shows compromising pictures of him and a lover (the audience doesn't see anything explicit, but the reaction from the characters imply that one of the pics is); references to a sexual position; a character strips while he is on drugs; another character discusses how she needs to be intimate with her husband to get pregnant; an older man hits on a younger woman.


A few mildly violent moments, but all played for laughs, including: an old man aggressively poking a relative with a cane and constantly berating him; two brothers who regress and start wrestling each other because they're upset with each other; former lovers arguing loudly; a guest at the funeral accidentally drugged and thrown around.


Frequently pungent: everything from "moron" to "bastard" to "damn," and "s--t," "asshole," and "f--k." Also, several uses of "Goddamn," "Oh my God," and "Jesus Christ" as exclamations.

Social Behavior

While the takeaway is that life is too short for passing judgements, holding grudges, and not reaching out for your dreams, these messages are mixed in with plenty of drug use, swearing, and juvenile behavior (by adults).


A few brands name-checked, including TMZ and Valium.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

A pharmacology student hides his stash of homemade pills made from mescaline and LSD into a bottle labeled "Valium," which is then mistaken for the name on the bottle and is ingested by at least two of the characters, causing mayhem.
