Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that this imperfect, but heartfelt family-friendly film attempts to address a challenging subject: interracial marriage. In doing so, it doesn't quite steer clear of clichés, but does entertain while at least partly moving the discussion forward. Stereotyping (including making jokes about Latinos' ability to speak English) dilutes what could've made this into a thought-provoking comedy about race. There's some swearing (including "s--t"), social drinking (and one scene of drunkeness), and a bit of kissing and groping between adults.
A couple makes out on a couch and in a car. No nudity, just kissing and groping. A character jokes about a vibrator. Some innuendos and heavy flirting. An older man enjoys dating and seducing younger women. A goat humps a man.
Two fathers one-up each other and hurl insults, some of which are racist. A fight breaks out in a bar because a drunk character makes fun of a patron. A man hits a guy with a baseball, on purpose.
Not too much cussing, although the words "puta," "piss," and "s--t" come up. A few "Oh, my God"s as exclamations.
Although characters are prejudiced, the movie's message seems to be one of unity and understanding. Love does conquer all, including, in this case, preconceptions and ethnic stereotypes.
