Very funny movie! Should be PG-13 instead of R.

This has to be one of the funnier shows I have ever seen. I laughed through most of the movie. There are some sexual references in one part that may not be appropriate for younger audiences. Marijuana is smoked once by an adult, but I did not feel like it was used in a way to encourage children to smoke. As for the R rating, I have no idea what the MPAA was thinking. The F-word is used once and the S-word maybe a couple times, but other than that, I have watched plenty of PG-13 movies that make this movie look like it should have been rated PG in comparison. This is probably the only R-rated movie, besides history or war documentaries, that I would let my teenage children watch. I honestly felt like this was a Family Feature film except for the brief sexual references and occasional swearing. I highly recommend this movie if you are looking for a good "clean" comedy that will keep you laughing.
