Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that despite star Jack Black's huge popularity with kids, this raucous, profane comedy is for very mature teens and adults only (as those familiar with Black's cult band, Tenacious D, will already know). It absolutely earns its R rating for pervasive language, sexual content, and drug use. There are pot, bongs, and mushrooms; the characters show a particular fondness for the word "c--k"; crude humor centers on flatulence and other bodily functions; and the ample sexual content includes a graphic depiction of the skill that doing "c--k push-ups" develops.

Sexual Content

Graphic depiction of the skill that doing gential push-ups develops. Sexual references throughout, including lyrics such as "gargling mayonnaise" (they're not really talking about mayonnaise).


Characters have a run-in with a gang, a character gets martial arts training, wild car chase.


"C--k" (constantly), "f--k," "s--t," "ass," etc. Frequent and explicit.

Social Behavior

Slacker behavior is glorified. A character raised in a conservative home gets into drugs, sex, and rock-n-roll. Characters break into a museum to steal a music icon. Musical showdown with the devil. Plenty of crude humor. All in all, the movie is aimed at an adult Beavis and Butt-head crowd -- if there's any message, it's to be true to yourself and not let people stand in your way.


Guitars, beer.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Pot, bongs, mushrooms, and other drugs throughout. There's a hallucinagenic sequence after eating organic mushrooms.
