Strip club long scene, nothing PG-13 here

Not a PG-13 movie. I won't let any of my sons see this, and I can't imagine my daughters ever wanting to see it. I don't even know if I'd let a 17 year old see this, I'd never condone the idea of becoming a man in a strip club. One of the main characters is introduced in a PG-13 strip club, not my idea of a movie OK for under 16. Oh and the music playing says "I can @#$% you all the time," although the worst of those words is bleeped out, it's not very subtle. The scene lasts at least 10 minutes... Later, pulling money out of various parts of clothing of a stripper. Skip it, plenty of better movies out there and better ways to spend your time.

Shouldn't be rated pg13

I do not believe this movie should have been rated PG 13. I have a 15 year old son and would not have been okay with him watching it. I am greatly disappointed, definitely not a family movie.
