Racist word used

N word is used. As usual 🙄 directors gotta get that in, in their comedy movies at least once, not even that funny, but if that shit dont bother you, the movie is still boring

age 12+

Very gory but funny cult classic spoof horror film.

VERY VIOLENT but mostly comic. There is one graphic scene where someone’s guts are ripped out. Loads of language like frequent f**** and c*** and a lot more it has some sexual stuff but very comic. A lot of drinking.

This title has:

Great messages
Great role models
Too much violence
Too much sex
Too much swearing
Too much drinking/drugs/smoking
