Very good - some people think it is for older kids but it is really fun and a bit sweet. A small amount of bad langage

Funny, but too much drug use

I watched this for the first time last night previewing it for an 11 year old boy. Absolutely inappropriate. While funny, I can honestly say it was pretty naughty. As someone who has never done drugs, it was the first time I've ever seen a bong being used. Also shows bare breast, which are bring drawn into the face of Garfield the Cat, absolutely unnecessary. Be warned, the movie does start off sweet, but it doesn't stay that way!

This title has:

Too much sex
Too much drinking/drugs/smoking
