In an attempt to play hero, a bumbling small-town deputy "saves" a well-heeled woman from the four men holding her hostage. The fact that her captors were FBI agents never crossed his mind -- but it doesn't mean his instincts were all wrong.

Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that much of the humor in this lowbrow, mostly unfunny Larry the Cable Guy comedy is crude, sexual, sexist, and racist. Women wear skimpy clothes and are objectified, and there's tons of toilet/body part humor. Also expect some swearing (of the "ass" and "bulls--t" variety), violence (a polo match becomes particularly brawl-y), drinking, and smoking.

Sexual Content

A man stands naked except for a baseball cap covering his nether regions. A woman is shown in a few positions that could be construed as sexual (even if the contexts aren't); lots of jokes about women (one is described as "big-t-ttied and quick witted," as if it were a compliment) and sex (Lary makes a comment about a farmer and his horse). A main character walks around in skimpy clothes. A porn magazine is displayed in a car.


Lots of fistfights and gunfights, some involving shotguns and handguns. People are shot at, and two characters have a major brawl in which they kick and hit each other. A man also slaps a woman around.


"T-ts," "ass," "bulls--t," and the like. No "f--k"s, but Larry does give a contraption the finger. Also lots of crude descriptions about body parts.

Social Behavior

For all of the movie's sexist humor -- some jokes verge on racist, too -- you get the sense that Larry's a good guy at heart. He's loyal to his girlfriend, only wants to do good, and, in the end, saves a woman from the bad guys.


General Motors is mentioned, and signage for a farm is clearly displayed. Also, one character is clearly wearing a Burberry dress. Billy Ray Cyrus is name-checked.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Larry takes a swig from a bottle of what looks like whiskey; some social drinking; a character constantly smokes.
