Not properly rated

This movie was rated 7 in Spain, and my husband started watching it with my 9-year-old daughter a few days ago. They did not finished it and my 12 year old and myself joined them for the final part, I could not believe the rating, when she decides she has to have sex with both of them, and the kissing and undressing scene is waaay too long. I fast forwarded some scenes, my 9 year old complaining, and she decided that sleeping with someone meant throwing a pijama party and the other guy was upset because he was not invited... definitively I have to instruct my husband to check your page always and do not believe the rating on the screen. On the other side, the movie was not bad, but for +15 at least

UNRATED Director's Cut Review

LANGUAGE 5/10: (3 F-Words, several uses of sh*t, d*ck, a*s, H*ll, H*rny, and more) Sex/Nudity 7/10: (A woman has sex on top of a man while eating Cheetos they get interrupted before anything happens, A man says how his son- who is now an adult- got his nickname because he wore a dress and said he has his "naughty bits" tucked in. The same man says how he is glad his son likes girls again and that it was all about egyptian men. A woman says how she used to be called "The Sausage Wallet" and how it is a term for sl*t, The same woman asks another woman if her breasts are real and says a man said they weren't. One Brief Sex Scene and a ton of sexual references/innuendo.) Violence/Gore 3/10: (Some action violence with guns, paint-ball guns, explosions and more.) This movie is NOT for young teens. The PG-13 version is fine.

Not for kids!

As an adult, I found parts of the movie humerous. But my thought of "This is PG13?!?" kept getting in the way of any enjoyment it might have provided. The female best friend needed a binkie in her mouth - I didn't need 3/4 of what she had to say! And the sexual situations were definitely not something I want my teen seeing or hearing about!

Wish it had been cleaner, I would have loved it!

There is so many sexual innuendo's in this movie. It was very funny but the nasty girl friend of Ress Witherspoon hurts this film with all her trash talk. The whole movie has a lot of sex talk and references and make out scenes. I don't regret that I saw it because it was sooo funny and sweet at the end, but I don't think I'll see it again and won't be buying it.

my bad decision

...left theater with a sick stomach that I let my daughters see this movie (and I am not uber-conservative). The story is fine (pick one guy, don't have multiple boyfriends), but that goes by the wayside with all the sexual inuendos, comments & scenes -every minute! I kept thinking, "okay, please stop" and it never did. I am way more concerned about exposure to sexual content then any other issue. Bad choice for both sexes because the context was learning how to be a boyfriend/girlfriend - right where they are right now.....

NOT for kids!

My husband and I went to see this a few days ago. I'm still reeling over the violence, language and sexuality present in a movie that was rated PG-13. It should have been rated R. As an adult you can look past these issues and laugh at what is actually a pretty funny movie; however, had our kids been with us, we would have had to walk out. Our kids (13 and 16) would not have WANTED to see a movie like this. Perhaps we shouldn't have stayed to watch either. I am pretty disappointed that Reese Witherspoon would even choose a project like this that could be viewed by young teens. Much could be written regarding the complete lack of morals in this movie. Healthy friendships were also non-existent. The violence was unrealistic in the sheer volume of collateral damage. Lying was prevalent. I think if I had to choose one positive aspect to focus on about the movie it would be it's attitude towards marriage: you can be happy with one person for your whole life, but it might take a little work and self-analysis, and it's important to choose wisely.
