I originally saw this movie in theatres with my friends and mother at a sleepover party. I remember it as being unquestionably hilarious, and, being overweight, identified with the main character. It was three years later that I saw the movie again, with my little cousin Emma and even littler cousin, Robert. When I watched it the second time, I saw a little more. When I was nine, I found the dog death scene a bit more disturbing the second time around, and the fact that he had diabetes was an eye opener for me. Most of the humor, violence, alcohol, and profanity will undoubtedly go over your little ones' head, as it did to me, and as it did to Emma and Robert. In short, this film has something for everyone.
