Despite what Other Reviewers Said is Not suitable for Pre-Teens!

I personally do not agree with promotion of Any drug or alcohol use in a movie! It's how addicts are made. Worked with SA clients for 6 yrs-most started as pre/teens. That said Movie was great for older teens and adults. All actresses did wonderful job! Funny, promotes strong friendships, feel-good movie.

Fun movie with deeper messages

Wow! First off go see this movie! What you get with four A-list actresses and a stellar supporting cast of well known celebrities is NOT hollywoods usual cheesy humor, offensive language, or raunchy comedy. What you do get is a well thought out story about four best friends determined to get the superbowl. You will feel like a part of this friend group from the beginning, and once you find out how strong their friendship is you will wish you really were. As someone who grew up in the discourse community of retirement homes, the few scenes shot in the retirement home directly aligned with my sense of humor and memories from my childhood. Once the movie picked up and the trip to the Super Bowl began, I was enthralled in the adventure taking place. I felt like I was really experiencing the Super Bowl with my friends. Football fan or not, Tom Brady fan or not, this movie is for everyone. A lighthearted, clean, and uplifting comedy that proves you can’t put a value on the best friendships, that memories, and experiences mean the most, and that a relentless determination to succeed can’t be beat. Today Tom Brady has a new fan, and the theaters have a hit because of 80 for Brady. The movie is suitable for all ages but would be best enjoyed by an older crowd. I don’t think kids would enjoy the sense of humor. Older kids or kids who are football fans may enjoy it. Older kids will notice some themes in the film such of strong friendship and never giving up on your goals.
