age 11+


Around 20 F bombs and a bit of sexual humor. But other than that its fine. The movie is hilarious and so is Will Ferrell.

This title has:

Too much sex
age 18+

21+ Degrading to women (and men) What a waste.

The meaning sexual banter is not worth the time to sit through this movie. Women are objects. Ferral is a typical pervert getting off on young girls.

This title has:

Too much sex
