Not made for the USA

This movie downright sucks. It is suppose to be considered a comedy but I did not see anything funny about it. Actually it is the stupidest movies I have ever seen and if you want to shoe it in America, film it in English so I do not have to read every word that is spoken at the bottom of the screen. As for the cast, I thought the actors did an excellent job but other than that, it is a two thumbs down movie and children should not be subjected to such a culture where women are no body and men are violent. Definitely a two thumbs down movie.

This title has:

Too much violence
Too much swearing
