Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this remake of hit French comedy The Dinner Game is anchored by a premise that is, on its face, quite mean-spirited: The main character is invited to a dinner where he must bring someone whom his colleagues can ridicule. Plenty of mockery does take place, but there's a lesson about conscience and morality buried amid the snark. There's some swearing (including "s--t") and sexual content (nude women covered in body paint, references to "BJs," etc.), as well as social drinking. Expect teens to be drawn in by stars Paul Rudd and Steve Carell.

Sexual Content

One scene featuring three people engaged in erotic play involves nude women covered in body paint. There's also some suggestive dialogue and innuendo; for example, a woman begs a man to spank her, and a man confesses to being ignorant of a specifc parts of his wife's sexual anatomy. References to "BJs" and hookers.

Violence

A few intense arguments escalate into brawls, complete with people throwing heavy objects at each other. A deranged woman takes out her frustrations on a very unfortunate sports car, leaving it a badly dented, moderately functional heap. A swordfight leads to a man losing his finger.

Language

Some swearing, including one "f--k," a few uses of "s--t" and "bulls--t," "hell," "damn," "ass," and "oh God" (used as an exclamation).

Social Behavior

The movie shows that some people are willing to do anything to get ahead, even if it means mocking and taking advantage of others. But it ultimately sends the message that doing so -- even if there might be significant material rewards -- isn't acceptable behavior, and there might be a moral price to pay.

Consumerism

A Porsche sports car plays an important role in the film and is mentioned by name.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Some social drinking.
