Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this based-on-a-true-story black comedy centers on a man (played by Jim Carrey) who leaves his family and becomes an unapologetic con man to support a self-indulgent life of shopping, partying, and sex. He eventually lands in prison, where he falls madly in love with a fellow male inmate. While there's little nudity (some glimpses of male backsides), there are several highly suggestive sex scenes -- both gay and straight -- and lots of explicit language, including "f--k," "s--t," and some homophobic slurs. The main character's devotion to his object of affection is clear, but the often criminal lengths he goes to for love hardly qualify him for role model of the year.

Sexual Content

Some brief nudity, including naked men seen from behind in a shower and a man's nude backside during sex. There are also several sex scenes, both gay and straight, that don't include nudity but do feature very obvious thrusting. Also obvious suggestions of oral sex and lots of suggestive dialogue.

Violence

A car accident and a violent prison beating, both of which leave their victims bloody and battered.

Language

Frequent language includes "f--k," "s--t," "bulls--t," "ass," "p---y," "c--k," "hell," "crap," "damn," "oh my God," "goddamn," "whore," and "d--k." Many scenes also include explicit sexual dialogue and some disparaging comments about homosexuals.

Social Behavior

Although it's arguably heartwarming to see the lengths that Steven will go to for the love of his life, ultimately the movie sends the message that you can do anything in the name of love -- even lie, cheat and steal.

Consumerism

Not applicable

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Social drinking at parties and restaurants; a man is shown with a drink poolside.
