Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that although this often-crass comedy about a group of longtime male friends pays a fair bit of attention to their fantasy football league, the show's real focus is their relationships -- both with each other and with their wives and girlfriends. The guys constantly talk about sex (the conversations get graphic, and there are a few racy scenes, though not too much in the way of nudity); there's also plenty of swearing (including unbleeped uses of "s--t" and the like) frequent drinking, and plenty of references to marijuana. It's funny, but it's not for kids.

Sexual Content

Many sexual references, often with graphic language, but no nudity. Couples are shown fooling around in their underwear and under the covers. Some male characters brag about their conquests and their appreciation of casual sex.


One character is threatened with a beating, but otherwise there's little violence.


Constant swearing, including "p---y," "dick," "s--t," "suck," "whore," "boobs," and more. Only variations on "f--k" are bleeped.

Social Behavior

The show perpetuates some traditional gender roles related to sports, namely that girls don't like football, as well as some standard clich├ęs about sex, kids, and marriage. But it also shows a group of longtime male friends who clearly care about each other, despite their near-constant, good-natured teasing.


A fair amount of product-placement: Bud Light seems to be the beer of choice.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Many scenes feature adults drinking at parties and bars, and some people get visibly drunk. One character frequently talks about his fondness for marijuana, and other characters also indulge or talk about being high.
