Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this movie has every possible kind of material that parents might find inappropriate. It has full frontal male and female nudity, sexual references and situations including "comic" incestuous behavior, oral sex, prostitution, homosexuality, and bondage/sadism/masochism, very strong language including use of four-letter words by children, drinking and drug references, and comic violence that includes getting kicked in the crotch. A character repeatedly lies about being at work and continues to collect his paycheck. It is supposed to be funny when someone gets fired because of his failure to do the job. The movie also has many offensive jokes. A character lies about someone being developmentally disabled in order to sneak into the Vatican. A German child with a Hitler-style black smudge over his lip marches in a Nazi goose-step. The characters inadvertently signal that the Pope has died and one of them is mistaken for his replacement. Characters have sex in a church confessional. To stay in the loop on more movies like this, you can sign up for weekly Family Movie Night emails.
Is It Any Good?
The main characters are so bland that they barely manage to register on the screen. And while it is understandable to try for humor that does not rely on any knowledge of history or culture, the jokes in the movie are so dependent on ignorance that watching it can by itself destroy brain cells. There are a couple of mildly cute moments when Scott robot-fights with a street mime and when Matt Damon, in a cameo as a multi-pierced rock musician, sings a song about having sex with Scott's girlfriend. But the rest is as dull as an offensive movie can be and as offensive as a dull movie can be.
Comedy is best when it is fearless -- when it takes on and takes after topics that are much too incendiary for drama. All it takes to make it work is to have some understanding of the issue it is addressing and a strong point of view. Unfortunately, Eurotrip has neither.
Did we miss something on diversity?
Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
