Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this bloody horror-comedy isn't for kids. It's full of explicit, grotesque violence and outrageous injuries (decapitation, a severed leg); weapons range from knives, guns, and ropes to missiles, hatchets, and bear traps. Also watch out for naked breasts (and one naked male bottom) and some brief-but-boisterous sex play when the boss cavorts with sex workers. Foul language includes "f--k" and "s--t," and characters smoke (one thin woman who's concerned about her weight opts for cigarettes instead of food) and use drugs, including Ecstasy, mushrooms, and pot.

Sexual Content

Several scenes show strippers with breasts exposed; a man's naked behind; sexual remarks (a woman will "ride you like Seabiscuit"); sexual slang ("c--k," "winkie"); joke about a foursome.

Violence

Ongoing, very bloody violence includes kicking, hitting, shooting, knifing, decapitating, skinning, burning (by a flamethrower), exploding (landmine under victim's foot), dismembering, and gutting. Villains chase victims through the woods and a dark, scary house; a bus accident leaves broken, bloody bodies; corpses frequently appear in close-up, showing wounds and blood; leg is cut off by bear trap (repeated efforts to free it only mangle it) and stored in mini-fridge; victim spits up blood. Weapons include missiles, hatchets, automatic weapons, hammers, knives, ropes, and machetes.

Language

Repeated profanity, especially "f--k," plus "s--t," "hell," and "bastard." Rude hand gesture.

Social Behavior

Corporate team members range from greedy and selfish to sweet and community-oriented; villains remain hidden by masks and are especially vicious.

Consumerism

The movie is about a corporate sales team that revels in profiteering. Also, references to Hilton hotels, Bacardi, and Rambo.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Cigarette smoking, plus drug use (Ecstasy, marijuana, magic mushrooms) that results in delirium.
