What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Wedding Crashers features sexual humor, imagery (bared breasts), and language (including slang for gay and lesbian sex and repeated uses of the F-word). There is lying, drinking, smoking, and sex (couples appear in various states of undress, including a bondage scene). The film includes a reference to "rolling a fatty," some rough touch football (hard tackling by a very competitive player, whom someone jokingly describes as being "on steroids"), a bloody beating, vomiting, a couple misplaced, comedic attempted seductions (both opposite- and same- sex), and a woman's masturbation of her lover under the dinner table. Note: The unrated version of this movie contains coarser language and more sexuality, though no more nudity, than is noted in this review.
- Families can talk about the lessons learned by John and Jeremy. How do they come to realize that their self-centered gallivanting is immature? How does the movie set up a contrast between their deceitfulness and that of Sack, who cheats at touch football and on his fiancée?
- Who is the audience for this movie? How can you tell?
