What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Klown is an extremely vulgar Danish comedy (with English subtitles). Based on a TV series, it's a combination of the type of awkward comedy made famous by The Office, etc. and the "man child" humor typified by grown men acting very immaturely. There's almost constant swearing (subtitled words include "f--k," "s--t," and many more) and arguing, with a couple of bouts of violence and a bloody nose. Strong sexual content includes full-frontal nudity, main characters having multiple sex partners, and tons of sexual innuendo. Characters also drink almost constantly and smoke pot in one major scene. It may prove a cult hit for certain viewers, but it's definitely not for kids or teens.
