Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that The Wedding Ringer is a crass comedy about a best man for hire (Kevin Hart). Like Wedding Crashers and The Hangover, the movie uses a wedding and bachelor party as excuses for debauchery and landing a one-night stand. Nearly every line of dialogue includes a string of expletives ("f--k," "motherf---er," "a--hole," you name it), and there's some nudity in the bachelor party sequence (topless women, a dog licking peanut butter off a man's penis), as well as tons of crude references to sex. Adults drink to excess and smoke weed, there's some slapstick/pratfall-type violence, and, with few exceptions, women are stereotyped as materialistic and shallow, while men are reduced to sex-obsessed jerks.
Brief shots of topless women during the bachelor party, which also contains a dog licking peanut butter off a man's penis. Many crass references to the sex that's in store after a wedding (i.e., "I want seven vaginas up on my face").
Physical comedy and slapstick violence, including a grandmother catching on fire and falling over, a rough and aggressive groomsmen vs. grandpas football game, a man whose genitals are caught in a dog's mouth, and a lot of pratfalls.
Very strong language in nearly every line of dialogue. Dozens of uses of "f--k," "motherf---er," "p---y," "a--hole," "bitch," "d--k," "s--t," "douche," "cabron," and religious exclamations.
Amid the crude jokes and iffy thoughts on weddings (they're only for women, per the movie, and men are only in it to "score") is the notion that men should form strong relationships so they don't have to pay someone to be their best man -- and that marriage should be based on love and trust, not how nice the person is or how much money they have in the bank.
Drugs / Tobacco /
Many adults drink to excess (particularly at the bachelor party) and/or smoke weed (there's even a song about smoking weed).
