Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that most kids probably won't be interested in this satire of consumerism and superficiality, though teens savvy about those issues may find it entertaining. Over the course of the film, the main character learns from his own mistakes, as well as others' folly. In the movie, get-rich-quick scheming is seen as a way of life, and characters grow and distribute marijuana. Meanwhile, greed, ignorance, and overdone sexuality are all ridiculed, and the filmmakers take a positive look at Asians integrating into Canadian society. In addition to the drug-centric subplot, there's a fair amount of swearing and some relatively tame sexual content.
Post-sex scene with man and woman in bed; lengthy TV ad with actress in sexual poses is played for laughs.
One clumsy, short-lived scuffle between young men.
Numerous uses of "f--k," "s--t," "a--hole," and other swear words.
Characters are mostly dishonest and engage in unethical and/or illegal activity (swindling, selling marijuana), but most suffer the consequences of such behavior; positive characterizations of other cultures; respect for animals; lead character learns life lesson.
Car manufacturers (BMW, Mustang), Pepsi signs, Seaward kayaks.
Drugs / Tobacco /
Growing and distributing marijuana is a major part of the story; some social drinking.
