Good Film.

Little bit violent at times but there isn't anything that alarming. Some funny dialogue and very well done. Well worth it if you're after a laugh.

This title has:

Great messages
Great role models
Too much violence
Too much drinking/drugs/smoking

Mildly Innapropiate

Was watching the movie with my daughter (12). Language is OK, except for a brief "oh sh*t" and "damn" "ass", words like that. Only thing is that the male characters often make sexist and rude remarks or actions. In one scene, a male and female coworker are "wrestling" on the ground and the male repeatedly grabs/slaps the female's butt, and briefly places his fingers around her crotch. However, I would recommend it, but if you want to be extra careful, have a short chat with your kid about what is and is not OK that was displayed in the movie.
