The overall lesson trumps the rough language/ sexual content
I watched this movie tonight with my 9 and 12 year old sons. There were several moments in the first half that made me uncomfortable and that I had to explain. For example, what's a 'stiffy' or 'wanker'. I soon started to feel like this movie was a huge mistake. But the plot caught up, and soon my son with special needs was shouting at the screen "It's alright to be who you are! You're so amazing just like you are right now,"
Both boys embraced the rough, colorful family and its equally colorful language, and it added to the authenticity of them being normal people with their own dreams.
I was very moved by the way this movie impacted my children, and (despite the sexual innuendoes and inappropriate language) would unequivocally recommend it.
