What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this golf comedy contains some tasteless jokes (about farts, male genitalia, marijuana, to name just a few themes) and borderline-offensive portrayals of African Americans. Although one character is a successful attorney, the rest of the black characters belong to a hip-hop mogul's entourage. There are no sex scenes but lots of innuendo -- including several allusions to "size" and a bathroom scene where three men's behinds are visible. And while the language is standard for PG-13, it occurs fairly frequently. A 15-year-old boy is taken to a nightclub where he's encouraged to "slap" a half-naked dancer in the butt.
