Average movie with high points

Dont usually write reviews, but with all the negative reviews about 'homophobic' jokes felt that I had to respond. The movie is a representation (a bad one) of the progression of a straight Male dominated industry with a jaded view on homosexuality and the progression of society and its views towards it. Joke are now outdated an inappropriate, but at the time were relevant. Brave writing, average movie. 6.8/10 Guilty pleasure watch though!

It depends

Okay so I think that this movie really is not bad at all. There’s a few cuss words here and there and a few sexual innuendos but it all depends on the child. Also if common sense media is saying 16 and up by the time the child grows up to be 16 he will think the jokes are childish because all Adam Sandler movies are childish and meant for kids. So I really would put bother with this film. I would say 12 and up because that is the age when you will understand everything and still be juvenile to appreciate it. It also does send a message saying no matter if your gay or straight, your still a good person and your still equal.
