    Wall Street Journal Joe Morgenstern

    A few clumps of very funny stuff (including a quick tonsorial reference to "Mary") can't hide all the spots that are bald instead of bold.

For Families provided by Common Sense Media

Iffy for 17+

A mediocre comedy about incest.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that this movie contains extremely strong language, many sexual references and situations, and a lot of gross-out material. There's brief nudity and drug humor, and characters smoke and drink. Most parents will not find this movie suitable for children or teenagers.

  • Families can talk about what to do when someone you care for is about to marry someone you think is a bad choice, and about how a highly dysfunctional family like the Wingfields could produce a sweet daughter like Jo.
