    The Hollywood Reporter Richard James Havis

    Toilet humor, jokes about paraplegics and serious overacting make this lowbrow comedy an irritating watch.

    Variety Joe Leydon

    Entirely comfortable as the crude character he has honed in countless stand-up routines and TV appearances, Larry the Cable Guy sustains a level of likeability that enables him to get away with a lot more than he has any right to. But, he remains very much an acquired taste.

    Entertainment Weekly Scott Brown

    As an expat redneck, I recognize the deep, dumb need of every group for its own culturally customized minstrel show. Larry, a junker ''star'' vehicle run on arse wind and fan love, fills that niche.

For Families provided by Common Sense Media

Iffy for 14+

Dumb comedy should be cited for bad taste.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Larry makes fun of people in wheelchairs, women, and gays and lesbians. Cockroaches and flies are shown in food. There's lots of toilet humor and sexual objectification of women.

  • Families can talk about the appeal of comedies like this that mock people who are different than you. Why is it funny just to point out differences? When is it not funny? How do you feel when people point out ways in which you're different?

The good stuff

    Messages: Larry is well meaning, but the film glorifies a kind of sexist and offensive mindset.
