Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that this wildly profane, over-the-top medieval fantasy adventure from the director of Pineapple Express has two stars who are likely to appeal to teens: James Franco and Natalie Portman. But this is a raunchy, "hard R" comedy that isn't age appropriate for younger viewers. It's filled with vulgar jokes and cursing ("f--k," "s--t," and more), and there are tons of references to sex, as well as some nudity (breasts, a woman's bottom), drug use, and drinking. And there's plenty of violence -- in the form of sword-fighting, gory battles, torturous creature deaths, and fight scenes -- too.
Pick a scene, any scene, and there's likely to be a sex joke in it. Bare-breasted women are shown, and a woman's backside is shown as she dives into a lake. Tons of references to sex of all kinds. A minotaur, with his genitals visible, humps a man; later, another character cuts off the creature's member and wears it around his neck.
Creatures are beheaded and shot with arrows, struck by electric currents, pummeled into a pulp, clubbed into submission, gored, speared, and more. Some of the battles get pretty gory; you name the torture, they show it -- though it's all played for laughs, of course. There's also a joke about being molested.
Profanity galore: "F--k," "s--t," "whore," "slut," "piss," "prick," "t-ts," "ass," "hell," "damn," "d--k," "goddamn," and "c--k" are all here, and many other combinations thereof.
If there's a message here, it's that siblings who might seem as though they have nothing in common can, if given the chance (or a quest), reconnect. But apparently they need to do lots of raunchy stuff and kill men and monsters alike in bloody battles before they find common ground.
Drugs / Tobacco /
Princes and creatures smoke what appears to be weed or some sort of hallucinogenic. Also some drinking during revelries and celebrations.
