Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that although this Ben Stiller/Eddie Murphy comedy appears to have been inspired by Bernie Madoff's Ponzi scheme, it's not heavy-handed and is likely to appeal to teens who are fans of either of the stars or director Brett Ratner's action movies. Expect plenty of high-octane scenes -- car chases, a Ferrari dangling from 50 stories high, etc. -- as well as a fair amount of swearing (particularly "s--t"), product placement, and sexual innuendoes/references to sex. The characters' scheme is a crime, but they're presented as Robin Hood-esque in their motivations.

Sexual Content

Frequent innuendo; use of sexual words like "screwing," "balls," "t--ties," etc. Some cleavage/women in risque clothing. Talk of making out and getting lucky. References to having sex, prostitution.

Violence

Cars careen through the streets of New York during a high-speed chase, and guns are fired. A woman rams a man with a utility cart, and a man vandalizes a car in rage. Characters cuss each other out, and one attempts suicide. But no one is seriously, physically hurt.

Language

Many uses of "s--t"; also "d--k," "son of a bitch," "prick," "a--hole," "ass," "hell," "banging," "damn," "goddamn," "oh my God," and more.

Social Behavior

The Robin Hood-esque main characters want to steal from the rich to give to the working class who have been hoodwinked by a finance mogul. While their means may not be legal, their intentions are good, and most of them seek nothing more than justice.

Consumerism

A fair amount of product placement and signage, including Canon, Playboy, Chase Manhattan, Ralph Lauren, Cuisinart, DeVry Technical Institute, and Nathan's hot dogs. One character is so ostentatious about his wealth that he has a rooftop pool made to look like currency and an expensive car displayed in his penthouse for show.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

A woman gets inebriated while at a pub with a guy she sort of likes. Some social drinking.
