Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this movie is the fourth feature film by the comedy troupe Broken Lizard (Super Troopers, Broken Lizard's Club Dread, Beerfest), which specializes in vulgar, raunchy humor filled with foul language. Neither the comedians nor the material are terribly smart, daring, or memorable, and the movie seems destined to appeal to the Lizard's core cult audience and no one else. However, for first timers, the characters are mildly likeable and the jokes occasionally find purchase. Aside from the nonstop cursing and sex talk, the movie ventures into comic violence and some sexual situations. Broken Lizard fans will want to see it, but only those over 16 should get the chance.

Sexual Content

There is lots of boasting, sex talk, and some kissing (with moaning and slapping). A girl dances in her underwear, but there is no real nudity aside from a naked male bottom.


One character is burned twice, via some hot soup and some birthday candles. Otherwise, there is lots of squabbling and shouting and mild wrestling. The "champ" punches a few people, and a character falls down the stairs and "breaks his legs." (They're bent behind him in a humorous way.)


We hear constant swearing throughout, with just about every word in the book: "f--k" (and all its variations), "s--t" (and all its variations), "p---y," "c--k," "c--t," "ass," "anus," "bitch," "retard," "suck it," "dick," "blow job," "nuts," "balls," "'tang," "teats," "twat," "douche," and one made up word: "Ejacudor."

Social Behavior

There are no messages here except one small one that occurs in the film's final minutes. The spineless house manager stands up to the champ, who has been bullying the wait staff, and succeeds in his efforts. Otherwise, the competition is equal parts friendly and mean-spirited, and there are a few derogatory insults along the way.


The brands of alcoholic drinks are mentioned in the restaurant, such as Smirnoff and Blue Curacao. The restaurant also carries a Zagat rating.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

The customers in the restaurant sometimes drink to excess, meant as humorous. One new waiter is given Blue Curacao to drink as a prank; his lips turn blue. He gets drunk and begins slurring and getting his words mixed up. Another character forgets to take his "meds" and starts acting crazy in the restaurant.
