I've only made it quarter way through because I don't understand why a donkeys giant penis is mentioned randomly to the kids and then shown to them. Also why does the daughter have to be bought into the scene where dad is masterbating even though I know little girl isn't really a witness to it , it just anit right. And then all the talk about strippers wanking etc etc at primary school. And we just think this is ok and normal and don't see past what hollywood is trying to really do here.

Skip it!!!

Movie had strip club scenes, lots of masturbation references (repeatedly asking somebody where they masturbate, close ups of tissues and lotion, etc), 'donkey show' photos, Mark Wahlberg's naked butt, etc. Not just cuss words, but crass references to t*tties, p*ssy, etc. Overall just a terrible movie. Funny that Netflix won't let you rate Netflix-produced movies.... : /

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (6 ):
Kids say (8 ):

Don't expect any major life lessons or philosophical messages from this buddy movie, but it's silly fun and Hart is amusing and good-natured from start to finish. Wahlberg is also in good form in Me Time as the clueless 40-something partier who refuses to grow up. The film sneaks in some messages about valuing stay-at-home parents (in part so that they don't look for validation by pressuring their kids to be perfect) and gender-swaps a familiar genre of moms letting loose. Some of the humor here is pretty crass (lots of pooping, farting, and other anatomical references). But the film has a big heart and lands some funny moments, mostly involving Hart getting hurt.
