Best movie ever

This movie is definitely on my top ten list. They don’t swear to much there is a- - - - -e and s - - t and son of a b- - - h and slangs. In two different parts people/ monsters give people the finger. The violence isn’t that bad mostly just fantasy violence like when people and monsters get shot by the laser guns they disintegrate. There is one scene though where there is a big gun fight where lots of people get shot by actual guns but everything is bloodless. The sex isn’t that bad there are just some kissing and that’s all. But over all it’s a great movie wear you just can’t stop laughing.

the plot was boring and pointless

dissapointing. the plot was boring and unrealistic and the whole movie was a total letdown. the only thing i enjoyed was the love of the 2 married couples because it was very heartfelt. there was a make-out scene and some bad words. there was also some attempted humor that wasn't funny.

This title has:

Great messages
Great role models
Too much violence
Too much sex
Too much swearing
