Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that although this comedy from the folks behind Napoleon Dynamite -- which co-stars Flight of the Conchords' Jemaine Clement -- is pretty light on sexuality and swearing (particularly for a PG-13 movie), it's quite uncomfortable to watch. There's an off-putting amount of bodily parts, functions, and fluids -- such as yeast, gonads, vomit, and feces. In one scene, a kiss takes place immediately after a guy throws up, and the "evidence" is on both kissers' faces afterward. Consequently, some families may not feel that the humor is appropriate, despite the relatively mild language (one "apes--t") and mostly cartoonish violence.
Tabatha flirts with Ben, and they end up kissing briefly (immediately after he vomits, so it's pretty disturbing). Several discussions about Chevalier's fictional Harpies saga, in which the women have incredibly large breasts that can shoot "mammary cannons" and the like.
The sci-fi scenes feature cartoonish violence -- like guns that appear out of animals' eyes/backsides, killer Cyclops, and explosive vomit. Several fictional characters die or are blown up, but it's not graphic and no corpses are visible. Darts hit Ben's mom in the breast (technically, it hits her gel insert), as well as another character. Although it's not violent, there's a gross scene in which a snake poops (a lot) and various images of "gonads" (in jars, being thrown around, stepped on, sewn on, etc).
One "apes--t," but otherwise fairly tame: "nads," "darn you" "dang," "freak," and "crap."
Despite the negative messages from Chevalier and Lonnie, there's at least one positive take away: that unethical behavior will eventually be caught. There's also a loving relationship between a mother and son.
