Did we miss something on diversity?

Had to switch it off because of anal rape joke

There are quite a lot of gratuitous sex and racism jokes at the start. A man’s naked bum and swear words (f-word , b-word and others). This was slightly inappropriate for my 12 year-old daughter, but then Kevin Hart goes into a rather long description of how he hopes that Will Farrell is going to get anally raped by a black man in prison. He acts out the movement for quite a while with his hands and describes the black man slapping against Will Farrell‘s white bum. He then said he would get gang raped as well. I made an account here especially to review this film as it is very trivialises rape and is pretty racist. I don’t think any teens should watch this. I had to switch off after the rape joke as it made me feel really sick. There is a rape epidemic in prisons and that is certainly not something that should be trivialised like that.

Graphic & Gratuitous nudity

Once again, CSM doesnt begin to tell the viewer about the graphic nudity and sex. While under attack after leaving the supremacist biker club, one of the women attacking them jumps on the windshield of the car and (surprise!) her blouse rips open revealing her bare chest and nipples pressed up against the glass. One of the characters yells "Nazi Titties" in horror as they swerve to throw her from the car. This scene is for comical effect and graphic though not sexual. But still unnecessary. At the beginning we see male rear nudity as the main character does some form of nude yoga squats in the mornings. (Awkward/Comical, not sexual) Shortly after there is a scene lasting about a minute where his fiancé seductively persuades him to buy her a bigger house by jumping on him in lingerie. (No nudity in this scene). In a bathroom stall you can see a closeup of a semi-flaccid penis sticking out of a mans pants so that Will Farrell can practice oral sex for prison. At a white supremacist biker club, we see several topless women wearing leather thongs objectifying women. Towards the end of the movie we see images of the penis scene as memories Many crude and vulgar jokes in the movie
