seabass makes it 15+

the concept is very slapstick but the Cam Neely scene makes it instantly more adult themed. I let my kids watch more PG-13 movies than most. A few bad words, fine but I draw the line at mature sexual situations.

This title has:

Too much sex
age 11+

Hilarious movie, definitely not 13.

This is a great movie, one of the funniest I have ever seen, the action is really funny and very cartoony. It is a little bit inappropriate in some scenes but in the Netflix version they block out the most inappropriate one. Very little swearing for a comedy like this.

This title has:

Great messages
Great role models
Too much sex
Too much swearing
