    USA Today Claudia Puig

    It's nowhere near as funny or incisive as the South Park movies, and it has a much crazier style. Imagine Abraham Lincoln chatting up a giant milkshake and discussing slavery, and you get the picture.

    The Hollywood Reporter Michael Rechtshaffen

    No doubt about it, the show's certifiably bizarro, stream-of-consciousness sensibility has made the transition notably intact, which should please its young male fan base.

Iffy for 16+

Absurd, raunchy 'toon TV spin-off isn't for kids.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that this crazy, absurd animated adventure is based on the same-named show that airs as part of the Cartoon Network's late-night Adult Swim block. And for good reason: This is not a cartoon for kids; in fact, it makes Family Guy seem like The Smurfs. The mutant fast-food characters kill, curse, and talk about everything from masturbation to bestiality. Teens (and college students, no doubt) make up the bulk of the show's fan base, so expect older adolescents to want to see it. But be warned -- this is stoner humor at its most surreal.

  • Families can talk about what makes this cartoon and these characters funny. Who is the humor targeted at? How does it reach out to that audience? Families can also talk about envelope-pushing humor. What subjects, if any, are off limits in a movie like this? Who's responsible for deciding when "the line" is crossed? Do you think it's crossed here? Why? Do you think the movie intends to offend viewers with scenes like those in which Master Shake plays the Civil War video game and the Confederacy wins? Or with its depiction of Africans? Why?

The good stuff
  • message true0

    Messages: Potentially offensive images of slaves in a Civil War-based video game and of starving, nearly naked Africans running away from the hunger force. The characters are hardly admirable in general, either; they're known for their immaturity and lack of ethics.

What to watch for
  • violence false3

    Violence: Gratuitous animated violence: Heads explode, bodies are dismembered, CIA agents shoot Abraham Lincoln, a poisoned person disintegrates, a meatball is shot, a cat blows up, a rapping fly is swatted, and so on. All the violence is highlighted by pools of blood.

  • sex false3

    Sex: Only one instance of two human beings about to have sex, but there's still plenty of sexuality: A robot keeps humping an inanimate exercise machine, the robot and two aliens have a three-way kiss, and the robot and one alien French kiss in several scenes. Explicit talk of pornography, masturbation, oral sex, bestiality, etc.

  • language false5

    Language: On the TV show, curses are bleeped out, but with the R rating, words like "motherf----r," "f--k," "a--hole," "s--t," and "c--t" abound. There's also a lot of physical/sexual language like "boobmeat," "balls," "unit," "poontang," "semen," "vagina," etc. One hate word ("faggy") and a long list of scatological terms. Basically, think of a bad word and it's probably in this movie.

  • consumerism false0

    Consumerism: Not an issue

  • drugsalcoholtobacco false3

    Drinking, drugs and smoking: Two characters admit they're high; the entire film seems like a drug trip.
