Unfit for human consumption at any age

For adults, it's just another gross out, shock comedy, like the many before it. Those that enjoy such comedy may enjoy this movie. For children, it is a minefield of some of the worst examples of human behavior that they could be exposed to. The movie portrays that sexual intercourse and living together before marriage is OK, and racial stereotyping is fine, as long as people of color are stereotyping themselves. The family potrayed is nuts, the mother is a 'recovering' alcoholic who has only replaced her addiction for alcohol with ones she can satisfy by 'growing her own', the younger brother is a gangster wanna be who steals, and the father, a judge and supposed paragon of virtue, freqnents nude beaches on the sly. Homosexual behavior is suggested to be appropriate, and another character watches two lesbians' sexual activity, shown with obscured nudity. And, throw in the normal crude and rude language. About the only thing objectionable for children that was not in this movie was violence. Yippee.

This title has:

Too much sex
Too much swearing
Too much consumerism
Too much drinking/drugs/smoking
