Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that this movie includes raunchy sexual language, irritating humor at an elderly woman's expense, tired stereotypes, fart jokes, and ridiculous plotting -- all potentially offensive for some viewers. While the language is relatively mild, it is repetitive (frequent uses of "damn," "bitch," and "hell" in particular). Characters drink, smoke cigars and cigarettes, splat condiments (mustard, ketchup) on one another's faces, and fight verbally and physically. Wealthy executive Malcolm is selfish and materialistic, loathed by his wife and employees (who call him a "jackass" more than once), but as these supporting players are dim, obnoxious, and/or greedy as well, you're left with no one to like.
