A lot or a little?

The parents' guide to what's in this movie.

Positive Messages

Potentially offensive images of slaves in a Civil War-based video game and of starving, nearly naked Africans running away from the hunger force. The characters are hardly admirable in general, either; they're known for their immaturity and lack of ethics.


Gratuitous animated violence: Heads explode, bodies are dismembered, CIA agents shoot Abraham Lincoln, a poisoned person disintegrates, a meatball is shot, a cat blows up, a rapping fly is swatted, and so on. All the violence is highlighted by pools of blood.


Only one instance of two human beings about to have sex, but there's still plenty of sexuality: A robot keeps humping an inanimate exercise machine, the robot and two aliens have a three-way kiss, and the robot and one alien French kiss in several scenes. Explicit talk of pornography, masturbation, oral sex, bestiality, etc.


On the TV show, curses are bleeped out, but with the R rating, words like "motherf----r," "f--k," "a--hole," "s--t," and "c--t" abound. There's also a lot of physical/sexual language like "boobmeat," "balls," "unit," "poontang," "semen," "vagina," etc. One hate word ("faggy") and a long list of scatological terms. Basically, think of a bad word and it's probably in this movie.

Drinking, Drugs & Smoking

Two characters admit they're high; the entire film seems like a drug trip.

What parents need to know

Parents need to know that this movie is based on the same-named show that airs as part of the Cartoon Network's late-night Adult Swim block. And for good reason: This is not a cartoon for kids; in fact, it makes Family Guy seem like The Smurfs. The mutant fast-food characters kill, curse, and talk about everything from masturbation to bestiality. Teens (and college students, no doubt) make up the bulk of the show's fan base, so expect older adolescents to want to see it. But be warned -- this is stoner humor at its most surreal.

What's the story?

In the film version of Cartoon Network's cult cartoon about a talking box of French fries, a milkshake and a beef patty, the titular group of potty-mouthed fast-food roommates -- goateed leader Frylock (voiced by Carey Means), bumbling Master Shake (Dana Snyder), and mumbling Meatwad (Dave Willis) -- become obsessed with putting together a Solarflex-like exercise machine called the Insanoflex. The quest to find a missing M-shaped piece leads the trio to two Plutonian aliens and a horndog robot that have traveled from the future to stop the Insanoflex from destroying the world.

Is it any good?

This is one crazy, absurd animated adventure. Fans of Cartoon Network's Aqua Teen Hunger Force already know that it's one of those shows that doesn't make a lick of sense; if you're into absurd jokes, the plot is irrelevant.

But parents, be aware: This film was not made for you or your younger children. It's really more of a late-night fantasia for stoned college kids looking for some laughs on the side.

Talk to your kids about ...

  • Families can talk about what makes this cartoon and these characters funny. Who is the humor targeted at? How does it reach out to that audience? Families can also talk about envelope-pushing humor. What subjects, if any, are off limits in a movie like this? Who's responsible for deciding when "the line" is crossed? Do you think it's crossed here? Why? Do you think the movie intends to offend viewers with scenes like those in which Master Shake plays the Civil War video game and the Confederacy wins? Or with its depiction of Africans? Why?
