Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that despite this family-reunion comedy's heartwarming message about remembering your roots and embracing your family, there are many raunchy jokes about sex -- including a scene of two dogs doing the deed. There's also plenty of foul language ("s--t," one use of "f--k," the "N" word), some of which is used in front of the characters' parents and other elders. Adult siblings bicker and get into fistfights, and there's a fair amount of social drinking (at one point, a pregnant woman drinks spiked punch).
RJ and Bianca are shown from the shoulders up during sex. Fifi and Bucky (two dogs) are shown doing the deed and later cuddling. Reggie sees Betty naked in the shower and makes off-color references to her "bundle of black meat." Bianca reveals her shaved pubic area to RJ, but the audience doesn't see anything. Reggie and his girlfriend are dressed like a cowboy and cowgirl late at night, obviously as part of foreplay. Other characters kiss and fool around. A few condoms spill out of Betty's cleavage before she heads out to do "Christian mission" work with the imprisoned.
Several of the siblings get into fights with RJ. One fight leaves him with a swollen bruise and the other literally bloody lipped. RJ accidentally hits his mom with a baseball.
One "f--k," several uses each of "s--t," "bitch," "ass," "titty," and "bastard." The "N" word and "negro" are used by African-American characters.
RJ learns that his real family, despite its flaws, is better than his fake Hollywood lifestyle. Bianca is obsessed with her image and "winning" but ultimately gets her comeuppance. Otis tells RJ he may not have a lot of money, but he feels rich nonetheless. All of that said, the movie does reinforce/perpetuate some stereotypes about African Americans.
Some of the featured brands include Mac laptop, Budweiser beer, Cadillac Escalade, Range Rover, Survivor, Access Hollywood.
