Cute mildly-cliché movie that overuses some language.
Some typical good messages about family, but done in a clever, unusual way.
Sex in the movie is by no means terrible. The worst of it is in one seen where a man and his fiancé are lying on his bed together talking about getting married. Her cleavage is quite visible in this scene, if that is a concern of yours. There is an occasional, tame kiss.
Violence is a prominent theme, though most of it is undisturbing. Some big explosions with gunfire are involved. Given the nature of the movie, massive cities like Rio de Janeiro and Beijing suffer cataclysmic natural disasters with people visibly freezing or suffering. The most unsettling moment (and it’s not terrible) is when a man is hit by a car, leaving him slightly awkwardly contorted and bloody on the ground. Additionally, there is a brief moment where you see a bloody man who has been shot repeatedly in the chest in his car.
Language is the biggest issue. The worst scene is when the main character’s brother is speaking to a young girl who frequently uses “s**t” while he uses an occasional “d*mn.” Throughout the movie, the language is overall pretty tame, despite some tense situations.
Bottom line: This movie’s plot was not as predictable as I had anticipated and was surprisingly entertaining. With good humor, a thought-provoking premise, a satisfying ending, and some awesome characters, this B-movie is fun. If it weren’t for the language, I would recommend for nearly all audiences.
(I don’t understand how it was rated PG-13. Some way worse trash is rated PG.)
God bless! :)
