While this movie is over-the-top funny with incredibly over-exaggerated circumstances, most kids won't understand the premise. It's still funny watching him work at the movie's sarcastic comparison to Sam's Club or Costco, but it won't be as funny to most kids because they won't get the joke of the entire movie..... It shows the frantic scramble for jobs after an economic hit, which many families can relate to, especially now. Whether or not you can comprehend everything going on determines how funny it is; because even if you don't get it, the less important jokes are bound to make you laugh uncontrollably..... If your kids do see this you may want to use it as an opportunity to talk about the importance of where you save and invest your money, and always having a back-up strategy in case of a crisis like the one in the film.
