    Wall Street Journal Joe Morgenstern

    Adds up to one numbingly unfunny comedy.

    USA Today Susan Wloszczyna

    Wildly uneven collage of effects and live action is no Disney-bland vision of dreams gone bonkers. There's enough Freudian material to reupholster a thousand therapy couches.

    Entertainment Weekly Lisa Schwarzbaum

    There's unwieldy mess -- but there's also unruly brilliance to this dark and funny story about the havoc that ensues when a man's uncensored Freudian id is allowed the run of the place.

Not for kids 15 and under

Starts out bad and gets progressively worse.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that this movie has some crass jokes and situations, excessive sexual innuendo, and some moderate profanity. Parents should be aware that there are copulating animals, sexually aroused humans, a nude female showering in silhouette, and enough cleavage and innuendo to put a James Bond movie to shame.

  • Families can talk about the appeal of this movie and crude comedy in general. Were there parts of the film you found more offensive than funny? Would you seek out other movies like this or stick to lighter comedy fare?
