Great conservative movie, but with uninspired humor
An American Carol is a funny, conservative comedy which is one of the few movies now a days that represents America as the good side. Conservatives will like this, most liberals will not.
Sexual content is mild. We see Michael Malone reaching out to grab two woman's breasts but he is slapped before he can do so. We later hear Malone mention the word Rape, and we see an altered Victoria's Secet ad which shows a model in a burka. We also see a man with his underwear pulled down while an attendant reaches into his butt; we see the side of his butt, and his front area is darkened.
The language is moderate. We hear s888 said multiple times, and hear SoB and B****** said once.
As for violence, we see Malone either getting stepped on, bonked around, thrown out a window or get slapped in multiple scenes (no blood, but we do see some marks on his face during the second scene where Malone gets stepped on). There is also a scene where zombies are shot constantly, and blood spurts out (not too graphic, played for laughs).
Also, Malone drinks and smokes in two scenes, and in another, hippies are seen doing drugs.
Conservatives will love this film. The problem with the humor is that is slapstick stuff we've all seen before. It's funny, but it's the same.
It's a good comedy overall, but some might not find it that funny. I give it 3 out of 5. It's alright for 13 and up, and iffy for ages 8-12.
Hilarious... if you are Conservative. There is very limited swearing, the worst being "sh**". Drug references are very infrequent and are even portrayed as negative. This movie will go right over the heads of young kids who don't know much about politics. The "lighthearted depiction" of terrorism is meant to mock terrorist. The movie's depiction of Ground Zero is brief and not at all meant in a bad or mocking way. It's a very entertaining movie with a good, patriotic message.
