    There’s probably more wit and pointed social commentary in the average four-minute OutKast song than in the entirety of Who’s Your Caddy?

    The Hollywood Reporter Frank Scheck

    Ultimately this is utterly forgettable stuff, not even managing to fulfill its mandate of mindless summer fun.

Iffy for 15+

Big Boi's awful golf comedy is way below par.

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.

  • Families can talk about racism and stereotypes. What African-American and hip-hop stereotypes are presented in the story? What about upper-class white stereotypes?
  • Were the jokes funny or offensive?
  • Kids: How was the club president like a bully?

The good stuff
  • message true0

    Messages: Plenty of tasteless jokes (about farts, male genitalia, marijuana, to name just afew themes) and borderline-offensive portrayals of African Americans. Also conveys that it's OK to vandalize if you feel wronged by someone.

  • rolemodels true0

    Role models: C-Note is motivated by revenge and Mr. Cummings is racist. There'snothing all that redeeming about the characters' behavior, with theexception of Shannon, who removes herself from a case when she feelsMr. Cummings is being unethical.

What to watch for
  • violence false3

    Violence: Two different men get hit in the groin; a man is tied and beaten up in a cartoonish manner; two contract killers plant a bomb at a party (no one is hurt).

  • sex false3

    Sex: Three naked men are shown from behind while washing up in a bathroom. A clothed man stares at a naked man's genitalia and then the naked man raps about his large "assets." Mrs. Cummings dresses provocatively, and in one scene the side of her breast is visible. She gives Big Large suggestive looks (licking her lips), who in turn makes inappropriate comments. A couple kisses. A teenage boy slaps the butt of a dancer at a nightclub. Bikini-clad dancers grind and shake during a short music video scene.

  • language false3

    Language: Frequently used curse words: "s--t" (and its many variants: horse, bull, etc.), "niggah," "d--k," "ass," "negroes," "assh--e," etc.

  • consumerism false3

    Consumerism: Corona beer, Range Rover SUVs, Nike golf apparel and accessories, Porsche.

  • drugsalcoholtobacco false3

    Drinking, drugs and smoking: Marijuana is shown being fed to horses, and an obviously high man says the brownies are made with his "secret recipe." At least three scenes show adults drinking beer, champagne, and mixed drinks. A teenage boy visits a nightclub full of drinking clubgoers and scantily clad dancers. Club members smoke cigars.
