A lifelong loser, coach Lambeau Fields is on the verge of becoming an athletic has-been. When his final shot at victory appears in the form of a deranged crew of college football misfits, Fields steps up to whip the unruly bunch into shape. David Koechner (Anchorman) stars as the hapless coach facing impossible odds in this outrageous spoof of inspirational sports movies from the producers of Wedding Crashers.

Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that because this sports-movie spoof has been marketed as being from the creators of Wedding Crashers, it's definitely going to appeal to teens. Originally rated R (it got its PG-13 on appeal), it has a lot of sexual references -- mostly through double entendres and sight gags (a wife is caught in bed with another man, a girl gymnast makes several lesbian jokes, etc.) -- though no actual nudity. There's also drinking and drug use, particularly on the part of the crazy coach who wants his players to learn how to party. Some language ("s--t") and cartoonish, slapstick-type violence.
- Sexual Content
- Lots and lots of sexual jokes and double meanings. A teenage girl kisses two different guys and shows off her bra in two scenes. A married woman is caught wearing lingerie in bed with a shirtless man. The coach strips down to his underwear (briefs) during a party. An aroused player is able to hang his helmet on his erection. A female gymnast makes several jokes alluding to her sexual orientation.
- A gun is shot in a cartoonish manner during a coaching drill. A player has an over-the-top injury during a football game. Lots of physical, slapstick-type gags.
- Language includes "s--t," "bulls--t," and sometimes-crude sexual jokes. A mentally impaired fan is called a "retard," "spaz," "moronic," etc.
- Social Behavior
- The players are encouraged to fail their classes in order to devote all their energy to playing college football.
- Brief Usual Suspects parody shows off the following brands: Champs, Scope, Aim, Pledge, Joy, Cheer, Shout, Depends, and Preparation-H. My Little Pony, X-Box, and Fox Sports are also featured.
- Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol
- Several characters drink 80-oz. bottles of beer; the coach takes pills and a bong hit and drinks too much at a party.
- Age appropriate
- Not an issue
- Depends on your kid and your family
- Not appropriate for kids of the age most likely to want to see it
