There’s language, that’s about it. Not worth watching.

Time for you to rob the video store

I don't think anything was TOO bad for this movie. If anything, it's the language. Besides that, it is a good remake, and a great comedy for all ages. I say on for 14 and up, due to the fact that younger children might not understand how using the "n" word might effect others.

This title has:

Too much swearing
