What parents need to know
Parents need to know that The Beach Bum is a raunchy stoner comedy starring Matthew McConaughey. Moondog (McConaughey) is a rebellious free spirit who likes to hang out at the beach and smoke weed with his friend Lingerie (Snoop Dogg) and girlfriend Minnie (Isla Fisher). But when he's not getting into trouble, Moondog is trying to finish his great American novel. Teens may get a kick out of McConaughey leaning into his chill, laid-back surfer vibe, but this doesn't look like it will be appropriate for kids. Expect tons of drug use and partying, frequent swearing including "f--k," nudity, and sexual content.
