Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this family comedy starring WWE wrestler Paul "Triple H" Levesque features a fair bit of violence (some of it comical) and insulting language, but it also has a worthwhile lesson about redemption. The violence includes guns and sticks being waved around, a couple of characters (including a young girl) being kidnapped and/or tied up, and shots being fired (but no actual body count). For a PG-13 movie, the language is on the mild side, but what's lacking in outright profanity is made up for in taunting comments like "losers," "stupid," "moron," and "idiot." Father-daughter relationships are explored, as is the nature of rehabilitation.

Sexual Content

Minor flirting between two teenagers and two adults. Ray makes a suggestive reference to a prisoner about how he should sleep with his back "against the wall."


Ray punches a guy in the face. A couple of boys fight in the halls until Ray breaks them apart. A bank robbery at gunpoint ends with a car chase that results in the criminals crashing into a diaper truck. People are held at gun point, and two people are carjacked. Criminals wave guns at each other during a short stand-off. A girl is kidnapped and threatened. There's a pivotal fight between Ray and three criminals with punching and kicking and martial arts. Ray is tied up and punched repeatedly. Ray's ex-wife slaps him twice.


Some insults and rude language such as "stupid," "buttwipe," "shut-up," "losers," "crap," "hell," "take a leak," "dirty," "low-life," "son of a," "moron," "idiot," "damn," "stupid," and the like.

Social Behavior

Most of the movie's messages center around the idea that people, even convicted criminals, are capable of redemption and rehabilitation. By following self-help advice and studying philosophy, Ray turns his life around and gets to know his daughter.
