Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that Meet the Blacks is a spoof of The Purge horror series. Mike Epps stars as a shady Chicago patriarch who uses ill-gotten money to move his family to a posh gated community in Beverly Hills -- right before the annual American purge. Language is constant, with hundreds of uses of the "N" word (by both white and black characters), "f--k," "s--t," "motherf--ker," "a--hole," "p---y," and more. And the second half of the movie is full of violent scenes which are occasionally played for laughs but still bloody and deadly -- several people die from gunshots, explosions, and stabbings. There are also scatological jokes, crass sexual references (including allusions to masturbation, premarital sex, adultery, stalking, and more), and pot smoking.

Sexual Content

Crass jokes about masturbation, a man's sexual desire for his cousin's wife, and a young man who wants to give "the D" to his girlfriend. Also jokes about "side pieces," adultery, "side bitches," "riding my mustache," etc. A young couple kisses and suggestively discusses how they have to stay quiet. A man masturbates behind a shower curtain (it moves up and down) while he stares at a woman's behind. Women wear cleavage-baring tops. A man jokes that all the white women will want to have sex with Mr. Black and that their children will want to have sex with Black kids, making little half-white kids.


Characters die by being shot, stabbed, and impaled; falling from a second story; etc. Some of the violence is accidental or played for humor, while other scenes portray purposeful murder during the 12-hour "purge." Men with a chainsaw, guns, etc. storm into the house to kill the "n--gers." A man is burned alive as a car catches fire. Angry racist neighbors are single-mindedly devoted to killing the Blacks. A woman with a cleaver tries to kill Mrs. Black. Several characters try to shoot and kill the family.


Near-constant use of strong language: the "N" word is used dozens of times; plus hundreds of uses of "f--k" and "f--king," "s--t," "bitch," "ass," "p---y," "d--k," "motherf--ker," and more. Also "Jesus Christ," "Christ," and "oh my God" (as exclamations).

Social Behavior

Lots of iffy stuff here, but there is the message that family should come first and that stepparents should get to know their stepchildren and vice-versa. Also stresses the importance of honesty and communication.
