    The New York Times Neil Genzlinger

    Sometimes a movie is so awful that the word awful is not up to the task of conveying its awfulness. The awful InAPPropriate Comedy is such a movie. It is memorably awful. It is stunningly awful. It is so awful that we are fortunate that “awful” has an adverbial use that means “very” or “extremely.” This movie is awfully awful.

    The Hollywood Reporter Frank Scheck

    Offering nary a single funny moment in its seemingly endless 84 minutes, the film...provides evidence that cinematic sketch comedy is clearly a lost art. The inevitable outtakes seen during the end credits seem to indicate that the actors, at least, were having fun. Too bad none of it managed to find its way onto the screen.

One star is too good for this unfunny, poisonous garbage.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that InAPPropriate Comedy is comedy with humor that's beyond unfunny; it's hateful, racist, sexist, and wildly offensive. Language is extremely strong, with frequent use of everything from "f--k" to "p---y," and sexual innuendo is constant. Sexual situations are also very briefly shown, and in one sequence characters critique porn movies. Violence is a minor issue; one character is a cop who shoots a few bad guys, with some blood shown. Bottom line? This is one of the worst movies ever made; don't waste your time or money.

  • Families can discuss all the stereotypes used in InAPPropriate Comedy. Are they funny? Are they offensive? Where's the line between the two?
  • What makes something funny to one person but not funny to another? Is there anything in this movie that you found funny?
  • Who do you think this movie is intended to appeal to? Why do you say that? Which movies is it trying to be like? Does it succeed?
  • Is any part of this movie a successful parody? Why or why not?

The good stuff
  • message true0

    Messages: No positive messages amid the nonstop jokes about sex, racism, and homophobia positive. The angry, aggressive responses to these jokes is arguably even more uncomfortable.

  • rolemodels true0

    Role models: No positive role models; the movie is full of racism and discrimination, negative sexual imagery, and homophobia. During the outtakes at the end, even the actors appear to be embarrassed by what they're doing and saying.

What to watch for
  • violence false3

    Violence: One character is a tough cop who shoots some bad guys with a handgun. One is shot in the anus, which then bleeds everywhere. A fight breaks out when a "hidden camera" gag goes awry. An angry passerby beats up one of the actors. Many other tense scenes with heavy aggression.

  • sex false4

    Sex: Strong, constant verbal innuendo. In some segments, characters "critique" porno movies; in one of them, sex is suggested in silhouette behind a partition. In the blackout sequence, a man uses his genitals as part of a mousetrap. Lohan does a "Marilyn Monroe" over a subway grate, and her dress billows up around her thighs. She's shown from beneath (with underwear); a scene-dissolve happens as if it's taking place between her legs. A couple kisses in a hot tub and makes "foreplay" noises. Characters joust with giant phalluses.

  • language false5

    Language: Very strong, constant language includes "f--k" in all its permutations, "s--t," "c--k," "p---y," "a--hole," the "N" word, "t-ts," "bitch," "goddamn," "ass," "d--k," "balls," "bush," "snatch," "poontang," "sperm," and more.

  • consumerism false0

    Consumerism: Not an issue

  • drugsalcoholtobacco false2

    Drinking, drugs and smoking: Some empty "40 ounce" bottles are shown in one scene as part of a racist joke. Drug use during the blackout sequence.
