Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that this "hard R" comedy is as raunchy, scatological, and irreverent as you'd expect from a Farrelly brothers movie. The plot -- two husbands (played by Owen Wilson and Jason Sudeikis) get a one-week reprieve from marriage and its attendant responsibilities (including fidelity) -- hints at what the movie's like. Expect full-frontal male nudity (as well as a breast-flashing scene), lots of sexual innuendoes and graphic discussions about sex acts, drinking and drug use (pot brownies), and frequent swearing (everything from "butt" to "f--k").
Start with the full-frontal nudity showcasing two men's genitals. Add to that lots of fairly graphic descriptions of sex acts, a scene showing a man pleasuring himself in a car on a public street (his private parts aren't seen. but it's obvious what he's doing), another in which a woman bares her breasts to a married man, and many more. Two guys are openly on the make for a week even though they're married; their wives get to have their fun, too.
A man first attacks a vehicle with a crowbar and then the people driving it. He also shoots at them with a handgun. In another scene, one man punches another.
Frequent use of words including "butt," "d--k," "s--t," "ass," "p---y," "bastard," "f--k," "bang," "t-ts," "a--hole," ""hell," and "oh my God."
The two main characters have a brazen disregard for their wives' feelings, blatantly checking out women and joking about being biologically hardwired to have their eyes wander. They're also very eager to test out their "hall pass," though they do seem to arrive at the realization that their marriages matter above all else. And although it takes them a while to reach this conclusion, when they do, it's surprisingly convincing.
