Nudity and swearing! Great!

Funny, lots and i mean lots of nudity, no vagina or penis shown. rear nudity is seen a tad, but breasts are seen quite a bit. also a child’s penis is seen in a diaper changing scene, the rest is raunchy, profane comedy.

Child Exploitation

2 minutes into the film, a child's genitals were shown on the screen as the father changes a diaper. I don't mind nudity in a film however I think it is highly inappropriate that this imagery was shown. I was shocked to see this in a film with a 16+ rating. Child nudity is not okay for any age band and I hope to see more ridicule for this scene. The film itself was disappointing and not very entertaining.

There are bad words said in literally every scene, and while it is a good movie, my 10 year old brother watched it and I think it is WAY too inappropriate for him. There is an unnecessary amount of sex and a lot of the scenes are just too inappropriate for kids under 13 or 14.

Pleasantly refreshing in the raunchy comedy genre

This movie, although being overly crude and raunchy, was actually a heartfelt movie of marriage, affection and how to enjoy your life. I mean yes, even though the movie's messages are heavily clouded by the amount of sex and language in this film, they still shone through in the end. Also, this movie was better than I was expecting it to be. I was expecting it to be a 2/5 as I thought it wouldn't be funny or sweet. Although the movie does contain some laughs, the things that made me really like it was the ending, which fit in beautifully and meaningfully, and the genuine sweetness of the film. These qualities of the film were so good because I feel like most slapstick comedies nowadays have poor endings that are meant for laughs, don't really make sense or are just plain boring. So I'm very happy this movie had a good ending. Also, I felt like the sex and nudity wasn't too excessive either, which was also good. Now, for the content review. For content I would give the movie: 8/10 Sex - A few sex scenes along with many crude jokes and gestures 9/10 Nudity - There is no full-frontal female or male nudity, however, you can see a woman's breasts when she is breastfeeding, you see her breasts when she is undressing in a separate scene. You can nearly see a woman's breasts when she gets a man to hold them, you can see a naked man and woman (with no genitals shown) when a man is watching porn. Lastly, you can see a pregnant woman's breasts and an old woman's breasts on a porno shoot 3/10 Violence - Some pushing and shoving 10/10 Language - Excessive uses of the f-word, other mild profanities and endless sexual references 4/10 Themes - Silly and slapstick, some marriage issues may be upsetting 6/10 Drugs - A man smokes from a bong, some drinking, smoking, characters get drunk Overall, a very funny film that is quite sweet, and was certainly better than I was expecting it to be. I would only recommend it to ages 15 and over though because it does contain quite a lot of female topless nudity.

Incredibly crude, but sweet.

So this movie was incredibly crude, but on the same token, had a lot of decent points about family, friends, love, and life in general. However, there is LOADS of nudity, sex, language, crudity, and some disgusting humor. There is one scene in which a man has to act in a light porno. Breast and rear nudity, several events of breast or rear nudity featured throughout the film, though its not always sexual. Some male frontal, or at least partial male frontal nudity. A few sex scenes tho they aren't particularly graphic and are played for laughs. In the end though, both men realize they aren't supposed to be in different bodies, they belong back. They learn some special values about work, life, live, and more, and its just an overall decent movie, just NOT for younger teens :)

good comedy for 17+

This is a very smart and funny movie but i have to make this point, just cause a films a 15 doasn't mean 15 year olds should watch it, but I would say that 16 is fine to watch this but I would say 17 is better to watch it and on the DVD you can choose to watch the extended/uncut version or watch the cut version but both of them are rude and have sexual content ones just got more than the other but anyway the movie is crude and has alot of nudity and sex but a great movie for a teen to watch with hes/her friends. 18 is the best age for this movie really due to the fact all the sex is graphic but its a funny comedy movie for anyone above 17 and up

Inappropriate for preteens, unsatisfying for everyone else

Honestly, this was a terrible movie. It's full of ridiculous crude humor that really isn't funny for anyone of any age, and it's essentially a movie idea that's been done over and over again. I definitely wouldn't let your child (or yourself) watch this, especially if your child is 14 or under. Even if they're over the age of 13, I'd save yourself the trouble and find something funnier to watch. This isn't worth your time.

SO disappointing

I love Jason Bateman and Ryan Reynolds, and the whole "Freaky Friday" body swap idea is usually pretty funny, so I thought this would be a great movie. WRONG. This was so disappointing I can't believe it. Nothing but cuss word after cuss word after naked people after dumb jokes.... It was not worth seeing.

A very raunchy film

Very crude and sexual humor throughout including the filming of a light porno. Characters smoke pot. Lots of breasts are seen. Very strong language throughout. Extremely funny, but think before letting kids watch it
