    To dismiss this movie for being ''offensive'' would be to offer it high praise.

    Chicago Sun-Times Roger Ebert

    This movie doesn't scrape the bottom of the barrel. This movie isn't the bottom of the barrel. This movie isn't below the bottom of the barrel. This movie doesn't deserve to be mentioned in the same sentence with barrels.

    USA Today Susan Wloszczyna

    Not since Andy Kaufman's reign of terror has a supposed funnyman been so self-indulgently persistent in testing a fan's patience.

not for kids

Sorry, this one's just vile.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that in this movie, a father hates his son, and vice versa. That same father is falsely accused of molestation (by the same son), splitting up the family. A handicapped character -- while otherwise portrayed as a positive, empowered individual -- has peculiar sexual tastes regarding her paralyzed legs. Pakistanis are depicted as gun-toting kidnappers. Grotesque family dysfunction, incest, abnormal sexuality (human and animal), revenge. Plentiful extreme profanity, with an emphasis on the f-word. The main character acts like an impulsive maniac; scenes show him cutting up dead animals, stalking people, making up cruel lies, playing with open wounds and body parts, and pulling sadistic pranks. Alcohol drinking/bingeing. Abundant references to oral sex. Sex between horses on a stud farm. Animal masturbation simulated with assorted livestock. Masochistic practices.A truck hits the lead character while he's clothed in a deer carcass. Running joke about a little boy who accidentally suffers one bloody accident after another. A compound leg fracture. An unrealistic (but graphically violent) cartoon.

  • Families can talk about what makes a raunchy comedy good. Why are some films in this genre better than others?
