Hilarious, racy movie, most teens can handle it...

This was one of my favorite comedies growing up and I showed it to my sons, 14 and 12 recently... They both thought it was hilarious. It's racy at times, language is strong, but it's all done for humor and this is one of the funniest movies ever. Just a truly, truly hilarious movie.
