A classic comedy, that doesn't need to be taken seriously.

This was made back in 2007, in a time where comedy had no line to step over. Yes this film is quite raunchy, to say the least. However staring some big names this obscene comedy is what it is. This film is overly made up, so elaborate, its a classic comedy.

Pretty sexual and it was honestly disturbing my mood is ruined

there's a part where his wife shoves a dildo in his butt, a part which shows an old man masturbating to women having screaming orgasms though they do not show you the actual clip, a part where a lady is on a sex swing having sex, naked butts, another sex scene where an old man is having sex with an old women, graphic discussion about sex, a man starts breathing heavily asking repeatedly with excitement to see a women's breasts and asking her the colour of her nipple, and there was plenty of almost rape scenes consisting of shower scene where a man gets confronted, lots of talk about masturbation, and a women naked in bed covered by sheets, TLDR;overall there is just graphic language and bums and moaning sounds and people motioning as though they are masturbating and having sex without any actual boob are genitals showing, i think this is not a movie someone with morals should watch

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (5 ):
Kids say (6 ):

It's a "comedy" about being molested in jail -- that about sums up the quality of this movie. Really, it seems like an excuse for Rob Schneider to show some Bruce Lee moves as he does things like vanquish an enemy in the prison shower with nunchucks made of soap and a shoelace. That poor defeated lump (albeit a Nazi gang leader) is then raped with a razor blade, destined to wear diapers for the rest of his life. David Carradine parodies his role in the television classic Kung Fu by playing a grizzled, hardened chain-smoking criminal who trains Stan to be unbeatable. But martial arts lovers will be better off watching something more ...humane.
