Funny-ish but not (at all) for Kids

We watched this with my 15 year old daughter. It got embarrassing fast. Both my husband and my daughter took turns leaving the room until my daughter left for good after about 20 minutes. The opening scene is of a couple engaging in bondage. There was also a lot of drinking and drug use; characters simulating sex; adults behaving badly. It’s a comedy that has funny moments but is more for college age young adults than kids or families. Long time actress Jane Seymour was the highlight of the movie, playing an aged vamp/mother to Malin Ackerman. Also several other actors were good. The movie was just hard to enjoy because it was so full of vulgar language, sexual innuendo and people behaving badly that it was hard to relate to and had no subtlety or even much of a story arc or plot.

This title has:

Too much sex
Too much swearing
Too much drinking/drugs/smoking
