Great movie for musical theater living adults.

This is a fun, but very adult comedy with one hit wonder songs and tongue in cheek jokes. I enjoyed it as someone who enjoys the actors and actresses involved with this film, as well as a musical theater enthusiast. Teens may like the film, but you’ll need to make sure that you’re ok with your teens handling sexual scenes and adult humor.

This title has:

Too much swearing
Too much drinking/drugs/smoking
