What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this movie earns its R rating due to the excessive display of bodily fluids and use of vulgar language. But there's no MPAA rating that would provide any useful guidance about the movie's inappropriateness for audiences of any age. Parents should know that the movie includes very disgusting and visually explicit gags.
- Families can talk about the difference between innocent slapstick humor and the kind of slapstick found in this film. When do they take it too far? Why would someone put themselves through these stunts? It's also worth discussing the kids who try to duplicate these stunts (despite the warnings) and end up seriously hurt. Are warnings really enough to stop some kids? Do the makers of these films and the MTV show have a responsibility for the safety of others beyond the posted warnings? Why or why not?
