A vulgar comedy Not for kids

It is quite entertaining to watch but it is definitely not for minors. Original version contains explicit sex scenes female breasts and male genitals. There is a scene where a woman is being milked like a cow from her breasts by the dictator

Hilarious, but not for kids?

Don’t get me wrong, this movie is absolutely hilarious, but it is filled to the brim with off color jokes. There is also a scene or two with full frontal nudity as far as I can remember. If you are planning on watching this with your kids, I would watch it on your own first and see if you personally think it’s appropriate for them or not. The humour is quite crass.
