A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this movie.
Plenty of tasteless jokes (about farts, male genitalia, marijuana, to name just a few themes) and borderline-offensive portrayals of African Americans. Also conveys that it's OK to vandalize if you feel wronged by someone.
Positive Role Models
C-Note is motivated by revenge and Mr. Cummings is racist. There's nothing all that redeeming about the characters' behavior, with the exception of Shannon, who removes herself from a case when she feels Mr. Cummings is being unethical.
Violence & Scariness
Two different men get hit in the groin; a man is tied and beaten up in a cartoonish manner; two contract killers plant a bomb at a party (no one is hurt).

Sex, Romance & Nudity
Three naked men are shown from behind while washing up in a bathroom. A clothed man stares at a naked man's genitalia and then the naked man raps about his large "assets." Mrs. Cummings dresses provocatively, and in one scene the side of her breast is visible. She gives Big Large suggestive looks (licking her lips), who in turn makes inappropriate comments. A couple kisses. A teenage boy slaps the butt of a dancer at a nightclub. Bikini-clad dancers grind and shake during a short music video scene.

Drinking, Drugs & Smoking
Marijuana is shown being fed to horses, and an obviously high man says the brownies are made with his "secret recipe." At least three scenes show adults drinking beer, champagne, and mixed drinks. A teenage boy visits a nightclub full of drinking clubgoers and scantily clad dancers. Club members smoke cigars.

Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this golf comedy contains some tasteless jokes (about farts, male genitalia, marijuana, to name just a few themes) and borderline-offensive portrayals of African Americans. Although one character is a successful attorney, the rest of the black characters belong to a hip-hop mogul's entourage. There are no sex scenes but lots of innuendo -- including several allusions to "size" and a bathroom scene where three men's behinds are visible. And while the language is standard for PG-13, it occurs fairly frequently. A 15-year-old boy is taken to a nightclub where he's encouraged to "slap" a half-naked dancer in the butt.

Is It Any Good?
It might seem like a Caddyshack clone with a hip-hop twist, but this "comedy" makes a lowbrow offering like Norbit seem like Citizen Kane by comparison. The problem is there's nothing touching about the story, and C-Note and his crew are a group of walking stereotypes.
If the talented hip-hopper's goal is to become the next Ice Cube, he has sadly fallen way off course with this awful, borderline offensive comedy with few redeeming qualities. There's really not much to say about this film except that Big Boi should either get a better agent or a better sense of what makes a good film, because this golf comedy is a complete whiff.
Did we miss something on diversity?
Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
