Racism and 80s references

If you want to hear Jamie Kennedy say the n word multiple times as a joke, then this is the movie for you. Filled with racial stereotypes, offensive language, and sexism. Kids 15+ could watch, but wouldn't be entertained as the content is so irrelevant to 2021 and is just plain disgusting.

This title has:

Too much swearing
Too much consumerism

Leave it to Disney for trying to hide sexual innuendos!

It has been forever and a day since this company has been irritating sexual innuendos no matter if it’s Pixar made, Human, or good ole fashioned cartoons starting way back with Steamboat Mickey! My 9 year old niece is SO upset right now about the scene of Kickin' it Old School Rudy asks the teacher if he can clap her erasers. Also, the apple eating scene was way inappropriate. My niece is pretty naïve and she’s in no hurry to grow up and have sex thrown at her. If Disney can’t write anything without sexual connotations, they probably should hire new writers!
