Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this movie isn't for kids. A holiday comedy of the Bad Santa type, it shows repeated arguments among friends and family members: one man argues with his wife; a young boy yells at his father; another man shoots his wife (off screen); two best friends eventually bond over their mutual hatred of the woman they have both married, one after the other. Characters lie, cheat, fight, and vomit. They drink to drunkenness (one from a flask while driving), smoke cigarettes, and hang out in strip clubs. Acts of violence involve handguns, shotguns, knives, and cars.

Sexual Content

Sexual slang (references to acts and genitalia); strippers pole dancing; seductions as means to other ends.


Stabbing, shooting, fighting -- all as " comedy."


Many, many f-words; crude language used in anger, frustration, and drunkenness.

Social Behavior

Cheating, lying, stealing, killing, vomiting.


References to Subway, liquor brands, car brands (Lincoln, Mercedes).
