Drinking, Drugs & Smoking
Characters use cocaine, marijuana, and alcohol to excess and often are very drunk. Two characters buy marijuana from a drug dealer. One of these characters accidentally takes the drug dealer's duffel bag -- filled with drugs and a gun -- to a wedding. A beloved ram who lives on the property ends up eating the drugs contained in plastic baggies, and the characters fill the ram with laxatives so the ram will defecate the drugs. One of the characters wakes up from the bachelor party with a joint wedged between his buttocks.

Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that A Few Best Men is an incredibly vulgar and obnoxious Australian comedy about a wedding that goes horribly awry. Teens may be interested since it features Rebel Wilson, but it's definitely not appropriate for kids. Characters use cocaine, marijuana, and alcohol to excess and are often drunk or high. A character threatens to kill himself with a gun and then accidentally shoots his friend in the arm. When a beloved ram eats drugs sealed in baggies, characters give the ram laxatives to force it to defecate the drugs -- and when they're caught doing this, it looks like they're trying to have sex with the ram. We see naked male buttocks. The profanity is frequent and unrelenting; besides "f--k," pretty much every other type of profanity is used. If there was more of a real comedic payoff for all this over-the-top crassness, maybe it would be worthwhile for adults, but its vulgarity is only matched by its triteness.

Is It Any Good?
A FEW BEST MEN is a substandard combination of The Hangover and Meet the Parents. In pretty much every scene, this movie tries really, really hard to mine laughs out of being crass. And they go to some pretty staggering lengths to make this happen. There's Olivia Newton-John pretending to be out of her mind on cocaine, for instance, and there's one of the lead characters sticking his hand up the backside of a ram to retrieve the drugs the ram ate. But for all these truly insane strivings, none of it is all that funny. Rather, it comes off as trite and predictable. And without much that's relatively normal to counterbalance the craziness, the humor falls flat and quickly grows tiresome.
Did we miss something on diversity?
