Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that Nature Calls may center on a scoutmaster and his troop, but it's in no way age appropriate for kids, tweens, or young teens. It starts off with a tender premise -- the adult son of a scout leader wants to follow in his elderly father's footsteps -- but quickly veers into over-the-top territory. There's barely a scene of dialogue without a "f--k" and/or other strong language, there are lots of crude and scatological jokes, and the boys even spot a mysterious naked woman on a motorcycle in the woods. There's also a lot of comedic violence that culminates in a man being blown up and killed in the outdoors.
A mysterious naked woman rides a motorcycle through the woods; a few references to sex and women's bodies.
Lots of slapstick and comedic violence, but the fact that an elderly man literally blows up isn't as funny as the movie makes it seem. The boys get a lot of scrapes from roughing it, as do the dads trailing after them (cars crash, kids fall, and there are a lot of bruises to go around), but it's all played for laughs.
Frequent strong language includes "f--k," "motherf--ker," "s--t," "a--hole," "p---y," "d--k," "jackass," and a lot of other insults hurled Randy's way.
Amid all the crass humor are hints of messages about honoring your parents and sticking to something you commit to even when it's tough.
Video games, cars and televisions, as well as a bunch of recognizable minivans (Hondas, Toyotas, Chryslers), are seen.
