Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this Jamie Kennedy comedy has crude humor and language. The "equal opportunity" jokes make light of coma patients, the mentally ill, homosexuals, Jews, African Americans, Latinos, and Asians, but not in an over-the-top way. A few scenes show Kennedy's character (a 30-year-old who miraculously comes out of a 20-year coma) "learning" about sex on the Internet (nothing is shown) and practicing moves on a male buddy who's wearing a wig and a bra. It's not a complete raunchfest like Borat or South Park; most teens are now used to this kind of humor -- as long as they're interested in the '80s, that is.

Sexual Content

Two 10-year-olds kiss; another 10-year-old prepares for a kiss by sticking his tongue out. Justin learns about sex by, presumably, watching 12 hours of Internet porn. Justin practices how to touch a woman's "breasteses" on his male friend. Various characters give advice on how to touch a woman. Jen opens her shirt, but there's no nudity. Jen and Justin kiss.


Dancers push and shove each other, and Darnell's girlfriend "bitch slaps" him.


Several uses of "s--t" and "bitch," as well as "ass" and one "f--k." Characters (one African American, one Caucasian) say the "N" word to each other. Justin says "retard," not realizing that it's no longer considered acceptable. Other problematic words: "homo," a "Jewbiks cube" (features a menorah, a dollar sign, a star of David and circumcised penises), and referring to Asian and Latino friends as "rice and beans."

Social Behavior

It's debatable whether Justin is a role model for revived coma patients, but his dedication triumphs over his nemesis' selfishness.


Featured '80s brands/products include the show Knight Rider and the car KITT (as well as David Hasselhoff), Hammer pants, Pop Rocks, Garbage Pail Kids, and a ton of decade-symbolic movies and shows -- The Karate Kid, The Smurfs, Sixteen Candles, Transformers, Miami Vice, Diff'rent Strokes, etc.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Even at a club party, there's no obvious drinking or smoking.
