What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that the sex in this movie pushes the limits of PG-13: nonstop sex jokes, including an erection gag, as well as implied nudity and lots of talk about having sex. All the violence is played for laughs, including car crashes, a man being beat up and a baby alligator being nearly drowned. There is drinking and a drug reference -- a hitchhiker leaves a drug pipe in the car and the family goes to jail for it. The commercialism is blatant, from the Burberry car interior to the youngest daughter's love of Froot Loops and the son's Pepsi addiction.
- Families can talk about why Nate and his brother wanted to win the "Family of the Year" competition so badly. They could also talk about whether or not it was realistic that the separated parents got back together. They might also talk about their own family trips and family reunions.
