    The Hollywood Reporter Kirk Honeycutt

    Here's the deal: The worst sex cartoon in Playboy's long history can't compete with the sheer vacuousness of this inane comedy.

    This is bad. Not bad in a way that it might be fun to see when inebriated. Bad in a way from which only death provides immunity.

    Writer-director-stars Zach Cregger and Trevor Moore, of the Whitest Kids U'Know, here prove the crassest, most maladroit moviemakers you know.

    The problem with Miss March is that it isn't very funny.

    Variety

    Miss March is overall a raggedy, unfocused affair that wastes both directors' acting talent and feels like too much work between the laughs.

Not for kids 17 and under

Road trip raunchfest is ridiculously awful.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that this is a review of the rated R version that was in theaters, not the unrated version available on DVD. Although this raunchy buddy comedy may appeal to younger teens and perhaps some mature tweens used to ribald humor, there's no question that this movie is a hard R when it comes to language and sex. Virtually every other word is a profanity ("f--k" and then some), and the majority of jokes are sexual, scatological, or derogatory. There's also underage drinking, as well as adults who drink and smoke (a pipe and a joint). Consumerism boils down to a movie-long focus on Playboy (the magazine, Hugh Hefner, the bunnies and parties, and the monthly centerfolds), and violence, while played for laughs, includes both pratfall-type injuries and beatings.

  • Families can talk about how the movie handles sexuality. Although it touches on the merits of abstinence and the possible pitfalls of promiscuity, what is the movie's ultimate take-away message about sex?
  • Also, is the explicit scatological and sexual humor funny or offensive?Why are some people offended by what others find funny?
  • And do youthink hip-hop music is as overtly sexual and misogynistic as thesongs/singer featured in the movie?

The good stuff
  • message true0

    Messages: High-school students make questionable choices, like drinking to excess. Characters make fun of epileptics and firefighters, call situations and people "retarded," and act in an immature, sex-obsessed manner. Abstinence is mocked and dismissed. Women are depicted as sexual objects of lust. Lesbians are portrayed as merely sexy "girl on girl" playthings. Hip-hop music is caricatured.

What to watch for
  • violence false3

    Violence: Ranges from accidental injuries -- a character falls down a flight of stairs, hits his head and ends up in a coma; a woman bites down on a man's genitals during an epileptic seizure; a half-naked woman falls out of a tour bus' open window -- to premeditated acts: Characters are beaten, stabbed with a fork, and followed by firefighters, who are portrayed as crazy and vengeful. A few characters sport bloody bruises and scars. It may be also disturbing for some audiences to see the "evidence" of a character's fecal incontinence on at least three occasions.

  • sex false5

    Sex: From the opening scene, sexuality permeates the film. Many shots of a character looking at Playboy and other pornographic magazines. Sex is discussed constantly -- whether the topic is abstinence, losing virginity, or being promiscuous. There are topless women in a couple of scenes, as well as relatively graphic depictions of heterosexual and lesbian sex. Jokes about semen, penises (or "dicks," as they're referred to in the movie), "girl-on-girl action," and oral sex are ubiquitous. In one scene, a man is shown full frontal, but he's missing part of his genitalia.

  • language false5

    Language: Strong language is used in nearly every scene, with "f--k," "motherf----r," "dick," and "bitch" being said most often, along with "a--hole" and "c--k." The word "retarded" is used an alarmingly high number of times, as well scatological words like "s--t," "turd," "poop," etc. Songs with lyrics like "f--k the white girls" or "suck my d--k while I f--k you in the ass" are played a few times (the singer is a character in the film).

  • consumerism false3

    Consumerism: The film plays like a 90-minute infomercial for Playboy magazine and Hugh Hefner. Jack Daniels is also visible in one scene.

  • drugsalcoholtobacco false4

    Drinking, drugs and smoking: High-school students are shown drinking and smoking at an after-prom party. Adults also drink to excess and smoke both a pipe and marijuana.
