    Maybe I'm just too old to appreciate the startling sight of a phallus jammed into someone's ear.

    Entertainment Weekly Lisa Schwarzbaum

    The whole thing wobbles, like the garish, trashy, sexy shoes the young folks are wearing this summer on their way (in droves) to movie theaters, intent on abandoning themselves to pleasurable mindlessness.

Iffy for 16+

This movie will only frighten you with its crudeness.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that just about everyone is the butt of a joke or two -- including African Americans, the elderly, homosexuals, the mentally handicapped, and overweight people. Frequent extreme profanity, with the majority of it sexually-themed. Every character acts questionably, from the sometimes drunk and stoned killer to Cindy's drug-dealing criminal father. Drug use is prevalent. Countless references to oral sex. Graphic photographs of a penis, a pair of bloated testicles, and an erect penis in a gay character's ear. One gag involves semen. Jokes about virgins, pubic hair, and sticking a penis in a vacuum cleaner. The characters all have sex, and we see lots of groping. A male gym teacher cross-dresses to have access to female students. Many bloody stabbings. A girl is electrocuted. Characters are killed for laughs. One is beheaded. Another kills himself.

  • Families can talk about what's funny, and what's offensive and/or stupid. Why do different people find different things funny? Why do parents and kids often laugh at such different things?
