Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this comedy has all the raunch of the American Pie movies and all the sexism of There's Something About Mary. It encourages girls to base their worth on how they look and how they can use their appearance to manipulate men. It also may lead teen boys to want to drive recklessly. The film also says that General Robert E. Lee, who lead the South in the Civil War, was "the greatest general," which may disturb families of color. The film shows teens drinking and implies that teens have sex. While there's considerable violence, it's so comic it's hard to take seriously.

Sexual Content

Some nudity when Bo and Luke race through a women's locker room and later run across women sunbathing. Lots of sexual innuendo and derogatory comments about women. Women are occasionally called "crack whores," "psychic whore," "pieces of sex pie," etc. Daisy morphs from a normal looking teenage girl to a scantily clad sex object. Daisy takes a virginity pledge. Bo and Luke say that Daisy, pre-makeover, looks like "a lady golfer who swoons lady bikers." Luke is a virgin and constantly teased about it. Several mentions of sexually transmitted infections, like chlamydia and syphilis. The "Hogettes" dress in gold lamee bikinis even though everyone else if fully dressed. Boss Hogg's wife Lulu is portrayed as a sex addict who must have Luke. Daisy and Hughie make out and it's implied that they do "everything but." Bo and Luke hook up with sisters Ally and Brooke Handy, who are known for doing everything. The narrator says that Luke loses his virginity to Ally, but only kissing is shown. Bo kisses Brooke.

Violence

Lots of comic violence, car chases and car crashes, but no one gets hurt. Bo gets tazered. Luke blows up a portable toilet to get a girl's attention. Luke jumps in a lake and nearly dies, but is rescued by Cooter. Boss Hogg pulls a gun on Luke and Bo hits Hogg in the head, knocking him unconscious.

Language

A little salty language, including "whore," "s--t," "hell," "son of a bitch," "damn," and "jackass."

Social Behavior

Daisy's sexy transformation teaches girls that they can get what they want if they're thin enough, pretty enough, and scantily clad -- not because they're smart or interesting or talented. The narrator jokes that kids hotwire cars. There's a lot of speeding, running people off the road and sidewalk, and through school halls. Bo and Luke kidnap Boss Hogg.

Consumerism

Not applicable

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Bo and Luke get drunk on moonshine, and the whole show centers around saving Uncle Jessie's illegal moonshine operation. Jessie gives an elderly man moonshine, calling it his "medication."
