Funny but not for kids

Clerks II is a great sequel to the 1994 indie comedy Clerks. Its funny, raw and entertaining for adults who liked the first film. However, this is not for kids.

This title has:

Too much sex
Too much swearing
Too much consumerism
Too much drinking/drugs/smoking
Great messages
age 16+

Hilarious movie about clerks. 16+

Hilarious movie, but completely inappropriate for most teens. Lots of f-words, and other such profanity. Scene involving "inter-species erotica" (a.k.a. beastiality) which was really funny, but, again, not for teens.

This title has:

Too much sex
Too much swearing
