    The Hollywood Reporter

    Shot on sometimes lousy-looking video, it seems unreasonable to ask audiences to pay to see this picture on a big screen. But "Wild West," particularly with a bit of editing, would be a standout on cable, where shoddy production values would be eclipsed by some very funny material and the emcee presence of a sometimes charismatic (and sometimes obviously road-weary) star.

    Vaughn could have used an editor, but Wild West still is a romp with a likable bunch.

Iffy for 15+

Raunchy stand-up roadshow will appeal to teens.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that the language in this documentary -- which follows Vince Vaughn and a company of comedians on the road -- is not for the faint of heart. The foul language is colorful (every form of "f--k" you can think of and more) and nearly constant. That said, it's primarily delivered in spirited stand-up routines and casual conversation that's meant to be funny, and no anger or aggressive behavior is seen or implied. The guys talk about sex a fair amount (sometimes graphically), and they also smoke and drink.

  • Families can talk about whether the movie's documentary format heightens viewers' appreciation of the comedians. What did you learn about the actors and comedians that surprised you? Did your feelings change as you got to know them and their families? Was the segment in which the comedians worked "clean" (for young Hurricane Katrina victims) less funny, more funny, or about the same as their usual routines? Why?

The good stuff
  • message true0

    Messages: Despite the constant barrage of R-rated language and sexual material, the comedians seem to be sensitive to race, sexual preference, and cultural differences. Some of the stand-up humor is directed at female behavior and sexuality, but it's lighthearted and mostly inoffensive. Real-life interview scenes depict the performers as hardworking and respectful of family and others.

    Language: Near-constant use of profanity -- including all forms of "f--k," "s--t," "c---sucker," etc. -- throughout comedy routines and in the offstage banter.
