Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that teens will likely be interested in this movie thanks to relentless promotion and its connection to Daily Show host Jon Stewart. Unfortunately, it just isn't that funny -- it could have been an amusing political commentary, but it missed the mark. Also, there are crude jokes galore (remember, it stars Robin Williams) about diapers, farts, "inhaling," pictures of naked women, and sex ("I did not have sex with that woman ... I wanted to, but I didn't").
- Sexual Content
- Romance between two characters, kissing, implied sex, jokes about Monica Lewinsky, lesbians, foreplay, prostitutes, underwear, same-sex marriages, pictures of naked women.
- Paint-ball scene in which the president is shot. A character refers to beating up a guy when he was a teenager.
- "Damn," "f--k."
- Social Behavior
- A character tries to cover up his company's mistake. Characters are corrupt (politicians, corporate big-wigs). Lots of crude humor.
- Post-It Notes, Paintball, references to Enron, Jon Stewart, Bill Maher, Oprah, Saturday Night Live, NASCAR, Ikea.
- Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol
- A character chain smokes. Social drinking at a dinner party. Jokes about "inhaling."
