Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that this movie isn't suitable for kids -- plus, it's just not a very good movie. It's got everything going against it -- foul language, poor behavior, crude humor, and slapstick violence that's so not-funny that it really isn't funny. Save your hard-earned dollars for something better. That said, because Jon Heder (Napoleon Dynamite) stars, kids will be begging to see it. So please take some time to talk about the movie with your kids so you can add your two cents.
- Sexual Content
- Flirting, kissing. A character draws a crude picture of a breast.
- A violent paintball game and tennis game are played for laughs; characters are attacked by other characters; someone's head gets pushed into a toilet; lots of slapstick comedy with hitting, shoving, slapping, and mace-spraying. Assorted things are shot at guys' groins. References to guys being (possibly) raped by a large man.
- "F--k" (one instance); "s--t," "goddamn," "a--hole" (all numerous); "hell," "damn," "tits," "ass," "sucks," and "retard."
- Social Behavior
- Geez, where to begin. This movie includes disrespectful behavior, going behind others' backs for your own gain, making fun of others' shortcomings, and physical and verbal abuse. A character is also shown peeing (no nudity).
- Penn and Babolar sports equipment; references to Chicken Soup for the Soul and Tony Robbins seminars; NYC Parking Bureau.
