Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this movie features characters taking advantage of one another. It hints at the fact that the scam victims' money was ill-gotten, and therefore they deserve to be fleeced. No one in this film is particularly moral. If the two scammers have a fatal flaw, it's their overconfidence rather than their immorality. Steve Martin's turn as a developmentally challenged, and later, physically challenged, man plays mental and physical deficiencies for laughs.

Sexual Content

Sex insinuated.

Violence

A character briefly lashes another with a reed; no lasting effects.

Language

A few swear words.

Social Behavior

No one in this film is particularly moral.

Consumerism

Not applicable

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Some drinking.
