Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that the consistent use of profanity in this movie may override its many humorous scenes, and as such, may not be appropriate for preteens and younger kids. In one scene that adults may find funny, an irate Steve Martin employs "f--k" repeatedly while arguing with a rental car agent; in another, Candy jokes about picking up pick-up sticks with his "butt cheeks." At the same time, the film does impart a few moral lessons, such as the value of family and not judging a character by his first impression. Teens should be fine watching this film, but they should probably do so with an adult.

Sexual Content

Scantily-clad girl pinups inside taxicab, couple heavily making out and jokes about body parts.
