Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that this odd-couple roadtrip comedy from the director of The Hangover -- which stars Hangover break-out Zach Galifianakis -- isn't as raunchy as its predecessor but comes from the same irreverent, test-the-boundaries school of humor. Expect plenty of swearing (including "f--k" and "s--t"), a somewhat explicit masturbation gag (nothing is shown, but sounds are audible), and a fair helping of mean-spirited jokes. One character uses marijuana (ostensibly to treat his glaucoma), once while driving. In the end, the salty humor comes with a helping of heart, but this is still most age-appropriate for older teens and up.
A man masturbates next to another character who's sleeping; no genitals are seen, but telltale sounds are audible. Later, there's some discussion about the benefits of masturbation. Discussion about women's body parts; a character muses about the fidelity of someone else's wife.
Car accidents result in injuries. A man with anger-management issues gets into arguments with almost everyone thanks to his haughty demeanor. He and a new acquaintance get into fisticuffs over all sorts of issues.
Frequent use of words like "f--k," "s--t," and "son of a bitch." Also "t--ties," "ass," "a--hole," "goddamn," "oh my God," and homophobic slurs.
All of the characters behave badly at times -- and there are plenty of mean-spirited jokes -- but in the end, the two leads find a way to appreciate each other's uniqueness and eccentricities. There's also some exploration of the way that fathers influence sons and how sons can either follow in their father's footsteps or forge their own way.

A character uses a pipe to smoke weed while driving. Earlier in the film, an airport officer finds another one of the same character's pipes. He's also shown buying marijuana from a dealer and discussing its properties as if it were premium coffee.
