Horrible, not funny movie

Sometimes we relax our standards for a funny, slapstick, even mildly inappropriate movie to watch together as a family. This movie is just dumb. It's not funny. It's a royal waste of time. Stick to the classics.

This title has:

Too much sex
age 18+

Raunchy, amusing

This is a typically raunchy Will Ferrell comedy. Its just inappropriate for kids especially because the lines around acceptable humor and unacceptable humor is very blurred.

This title has:

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