Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that this movie -- which stars Dane Cook and Jessica Simpson -- is predictably rife with potty humor, foul-mouthed characters, sexual innuendo, and not-so-subtle racism and sexism -- which means kids will think it's a hoot. An African-American character is a dim-witted, gentle giant, while an Asian character willingly does favors for sweet treats. And let's not forget Hispanic nimrod Jorge with his vapid stare -- apparently Efren Ramirez (Pedro in Napoleon Dynamite) isn't too concerned about being typecast. In one scene, Jorge pulls a knife, and Vince says to him, "I thought you were Mexican, not Puerto Rican!" What century is this, again?
Characters compete to have sex with a girl. A female character dresses in tight shirts with lots of cleavage. References to male genitals. A character stares at a woman's breasts. Sexual innuendo and double meanings ("plant the seed").
Slapstick violence. Characters run into a forklift, get caught in a cord and trip, fall off a counter, get hit with a locker door/mini-golf ball/tennis ball, collide while catching a baseball, and fall off an indoor porch swing.
"Anal," "balls," "chicks," "butt," "s--t."
Various cultures (Asian, Hispanic, African American) are stereotyped. Male characters try to win a contest to have sex with a female character. A boy begs his mom to buy toys. Name-calling. A character slacks off at work.
The movie is set at a giant warehouse store full of products, so if you can name it, it's probably in there: Folger's coffee, Charmin toilet paper, Milk Duds, Gummi Bear vitamins, Sharpie, Honda, Toyota Camry, Hummer remote control car, and lots more.
