What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this lowbrow comedy is much raunchier than the teen-friendly dance movies it's spoofing. There's lots of gross-out humor, including a character's head literally going up his butt, a fat man squashing a thinner man in a dance battle, and more. Sexuality includes references to teen pregnancy, penis size, baby daddies/mommas, and pole dancing; a couple also kisses and has off-camera sex. The violence is obviously fake and cartoonish; language ranges from "damn" to "s--t" but isn't extreme.
- Families can talk about the movie's over-the-top, nonstop style of parody. Are all of the movie references funny, or does the sheer number lessen the comedic impact?
- The movie casually mocks interracial relationships and teen pregnancy, but is either situation all that humorous?
- Is this style of spoof still relevant?
