What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Bad Words is a mostly hilarious, sharp-edged comedy, with lots of crude humor. Though it features children as part of its cast, it's not kid-friendly. In fact, its lead character spares nobody his caustic verbal attacks, including kids. Prepare to hear loads of insulting and coarse language, including "c--ksucker," "s--t" and "f--k." There are also a few scenes showing a couple having sex, though we see only their faces, and a brief view from above the waist. An adult discusses sex with a child as if they're the same age, and even hires a prostitute to show off her breasts to him, which viewers see as well.
