Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that this film includes broad physical and what might be termed "vaudevillian" humor: ethnic, gay, and sex jokes, with language that might need explanation for younger viewers ("I shall take your virginity!" "You had to schtupp every little old lady in New York..."). The film also makes fun of a neurotic man's blanket fixation, Nazis/Hitler, prison, accountants, and actors ("Kill all ze actors!"). Since the movie is a satire, only kids old enough to recognize the movie's tongue in cheek references should see it.
- Sexual Content
- Bawdy sex jokes, including references to virginity, bosoms/bottoms, showgirls, elderly women exchanging money for sex.
