In between R and pg13

There are lots of adult humor jokes in this movie. It's a toned down Deadpool 2 mixed with Princess bride. I don't know about letting my kids watch it or not. It has a lot of attempting suicide scenes and adult jokes about sex.

This title has:

Great messages
Too much violence
Too much sex
Too much swearing
age 13+

Clearly rated as PG-13...

Reduced from 18/R by removing some of the worst scenesand swears but thge filmn is still clearly rated as a PG-13 so no respomsible adult should be showing this to 8 or 10 year olds.
