What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this is a PG-13 movie that could easily have qualified for an R (and, in fact, an R-rated version was also released on DVD), and they should be very cautious about evaluating its appropriateness for teenagers. The movie has very strong language and jokes about oral sex, masturbation, and homosexuality. A "butt cheek implant" operation is shown in brief but gross detail. Drinking too much beer is portrayed as a humorous bonding experience. The movie includes comic kidnapping and comic fatalities. A woman uses sex to control a man.
- Families can talk about what happens to friends when they start to become involved in romance and why a man like Darren would put up with a woman who treats him with no respect or affection. What would be the right thing to do if you believe your friend is in a bad relationship?
