A Great Comedy, But Not For Very Young Kids

This is a great family comedy for kids and parents of about 13 years old. My kids are 12 and 14, and they thought that this was the best. As there is quite a lot f swearing and drinking drugs and smoking it's not the best movie for families with young children, but okay for mature tweens and all teens. There is some sex involved, but no real sex scene. There is some gore and violence, but nothing that the average teen hasn't seen in the Hunger Games or Divergent. Quite a lot of swearing, but OK for secondary school kids, because they've heard it all before. It's overall, an Ok movie for tweens and teens but for much younger viewers it's advised not to watch without going through it yourself first. Hope this helped influence your decision.It's a great movie.
