Is It Any Good?

Kids say: Not yet rated

This movie is loaded with teen appeal from the lowbrow comedy to the almost nonstop jokes and gags about sex, but it's also predictable and full of stereotypes and jokes that just don't land. The cast of teens and young adults aren't without their charms, but the veteran cast of older adults (yes, Decker is the guy who played Biff in Back to the Future) should have been better, and maybe they could've been with a stronger script and more seasoned director. Frontal nudity, simulated sex, lots of strong language, and glorified depictions of beer and lack of ambition make House Broken best for oldest teens and up, but those looking for real laughs should keep looking.
