Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that this indie crime comedy seems aimed at teenage boys (R rating and all). It focuses on a shiftless guy who can't even commit petty crimes successfully but still ends up with a notorious reputation and a large following in his small town. The language is extremely gratuitous given the comparatively tame subject matter. In the last 20 minutes there are two surprisingly violent (although not graphic) scenes. A few sexual comments are made, including an extended conversation about an extramarital affair and a character's illicit porn collection.
Several references to a character's adulterous wife; a woman tells her date she expects a sexual favor; a shopkeeper is revealed to have a huge stash of homemade porn.
All of the movie's violence is concentrated in its third act: a young criminal gets shot by the cops while fleeing the scene; a police officer is run over by a van as he's about to kill a suspect; a bullet-ridden, slightly bloody body is shown very briefly.
Verges on Tarantino territory with more than 50 "f--k"s and dozens of "s--t"s, "c--k"s, and even "c--t."
In search of an infamous reputation, a central character lies, cheats, and steals -- even though the rep is completely undeserved.
