Sweeter than expected

The Commonsense Media description of the movie is accurate. I'd add that the overall tone was sweeter than I expected. Our family doesn't make a big deal out of swearing so that wasn't a problem. There was quite a bit of sexual/genital humor, but only maybe two kisses (at which my 10-year-olds hid their faces because that's "icky" to them) and no sex. It's silly, the songs are catchy (and ridiculous), the scenes in Iceland are beautiful, there were cameos of great Eurovision performers and we all laughed, so I'd call it a win.

Not the best movie but the singing is pretty good.

This title has:

Great role models
Too much swearing
Too much drinking/drugs/smoking

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (17):
Kids say (31):

The filmmakers and high-spirited cast simply can't sustain more than two hours of comic frenzy along in this sometimes funny but crude spoof. There are some musical highlights (Demi Lovato makes a surprising appearance, and Molly Sanden, voice performer for McAdams, is wonderful). Ferrell's devoted following and fans of over-the-top goofiness will still find much to like, but judicious editing plus a little less of Ferrell's man-child persona and Dan Stevens' sleaziness might have taken Eurovision Song Contest up a notch.
