Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that while this low-budget indie comedy is being extensively promoted and pushed by Will Ferrell and Adam McKay (Anchorman, Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby), they aren't actually involved in it -- they're just fans. But, like many of the movies they have been involved with, there's extensive, coarse sexual content (implied oral sex, lots of sexual language); broad, slapstick-variety violence (here, mostly in the form of different kinds of fights and beatings); and plenty of swearing and drinking. What's more, main character Fred isn't very sympathetic; he's a bully and a blowhard and a bore, and his unearned arrogance and condescension are creepy, not comedic. The film also has a sneering tone that's hard to shake.

Sexual Content

Constant sexual language (including "whore," "gang-rape," "hand job," and more); implied oral sex; two characters are seen having sex (while fully clothed).


Fighting both within the setting of a martial arts studio and beyond it; scuffling, tussling, and "wrassling" characters are severely beaten or administer severe beatings; mismatched training bouts between adults and children -- as well as between fit adults and older adults -- are presented as comedic.


Constant sexually suggestive language, including "whore," "hand job," "nuts," "butt-f--k," "gang rape," and "screwing." Also "f--k," "piss," "s--t," "nuts," "suck," "retard" (used as an insult), and more.

Social Behavior

The characters are uniformly deluded, self-centered, and foolish -- no role models here. A Hollywood action star acts like a jerk in general, and even main character Fred is a bit of a bully and a blowhard. There's also a shattered marriage, including infidelity and mismatched training fights.


No brands (except a fictional fish restaurant) mentioned by name.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Alcohol is consumed extensively, frequently to excess.
