What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this comedy includes some cursing and broad physical, occasionally violent comedy. Characters drink and act drunkenly; they make jokes about sex (with two scenes leaning toward activity, one in a married couple's bed and one in the car). Characters steal, lie, blackmail, and cheat to get money.
- Families can talk about the day laborers joke: while it may be funny to see Dick mistaken for "Mexican," how does this situation speak to real concerns for poor immigrants?
- Do Dick and Jane learn any moral lessons from their ordeal?
