Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that Don Verdean is a lowbrow comedy from the creators of Napoleon Dynamite and Nacho Libre that has themes related to faith and spirituality -- an odd-couple pairing for sure. Even though the two main characters are good and learn a valuable lesson about lying, most of the rest of the movie consists of crude jokes and some stereotypes. Viewers will see guns and some shooting, with images of fake blood, as well as a real (within the movie's world) gunshot wound. There's also fighting, punching, and arguing, as well as verbal threats. Characters make reference to "hookers" and "whores," and private body parts are shown on salt statues (it makes sense when you see it...). The main characters also kiss. While characters don't use the strongest swear words, milder ones show up a lot, including "bastard," "butt," "crap," etc. A minor character is said to be a drug dealer; cannabis is mentioned.

Sexual Content

Main characters kiss. A character is said to have married a hooker. A salt pillar person shows two huge "breasts"; another statue shows what appears to be a penis. A character hopes to have "hot chicks lined up." Words "hermaphrodite" and "whore" used.

Violence

Some guns and shooting. A character has a fake bullet wound, with fake blood gushing from it; another character is shot for real (within the movie's reality). Scene of punching. Shouting and arguing. A creepy skeleton. Verbal threat of "putting dead dogs in their cars."

Language

Language includes uses of "damn," "bastard," "screwed," "crap," "butthole," "butt," "fart," "uterus," "caca," "nuts," "testicles," "penis," "anus," and a comically mispronounced "DOOTCH-bag."

Social Behavior

Honesty is the best policy; lying can lead to suffering (both your own and others'). Telling the truth is worth it. On the downside: some cultural stereotypes (Israeli, Chinese, etc.).

Consumerism

A sermon includes mentions of cereals: Grape Nuts, Life, Raisin Bran, Special K. A character covets a Pontiac Fiero.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

A minor character has gone to jail for dealing drugs. Cannabis mentioned.
