What parents need to know

Positive messages

This is meant to push the boundaries of taste and appropriateness, and does so: From children begging an audience to perform sexual acts upon them to female corpses being sexually violated.

Positive role models

People in charge abuse their power and sexualize every possible situation. No one behaves admirably for even a second.

Violence

Extreme cartoon violence and violence against women. A dead woman is dragged around as a character's girlfriend and violated. Bombs, gun violence, sexual violence, characters heads being blown off at close range, baby blood being drunk and more.

Sex

All body parts, including extended shots of penises and nipples are shown. Characters are shown in pornographic poses with other characters. Violation of women, characters masturbating to violent acts. Apparently all in the name of parody. 

Language

Many combinations of all the bad language: "s--t," "c--k," "c--t," "f--k," "motherf--ker," "t--ties," "s--t covered c--ks," and worse. Racial slurs and a character named Jew Producer.

Consumerism

Zales diamonds, Disney, cell phones all mentioned.

Drinking, drugs, & smoking

Even the opening credits have the sound effects of someone smoking a bong and blowing bong smoke. Characters drink and get drunk, smoke cigarettes.

Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that this movie version of the Comedy Central series is filled to the brim with lewd sexual acts, language, and violence. The cartoon parody is meant to push the boundries of taste, but amidst violence against women, the violation of corpses, kids asking to be sexually abused, heads blown off at close range, the drinking of baby blood ... who -- and especially what child -- is going to be thinking of this as a parody?

What's the story?

The Drawn Together gang discovers that they are not being censored, which (after much cursing and many explicit sexual acts) clues them into the fact that not only has their show been cancelled, but they are not real. Moreover, they are being chased by a robot named I.S.R.A.E.L. (Seth MacFarlane), who wants to erase them. They travel through different cartoon lands, like Bedrock and South Park, in order to elude their pursuers. Will they escape doom? Rest assured, these characters will stop at nothing to save themselves.

Is it any good?

QUALITY

Comedy Central's popular TV show must contend with censors when it airs, but the movie version has a no-holds-barred approach to discarding any shred of decency that might exist without censoring. There is no discernible plot arc either -- essentially this movie is about the characters' fight for their survival. Is that worth making a movie about? It seems to be an excuse to see Foxxy have sex with various men and women, or for characters to masturbate on screen. Even worse, because of the TV show, this lewd free-for-all will draw in teens. And that's even less funny than the actual movie -- which is really saying something.

Families can talk about...

  • Families can talk about violence, and especially violence against women. Does seeing it on screen make you cringe every time, or do you think the more you see of it the less it affects you?

  • The same goes for sex on TV and in the movies. Do you think seeing so much on screen affects you? Why or why not?

  • What are examples of good parodies? Do they always have to be over-the-top and pushing the envelope? Or can they be more innocent fun, like Mel Brooks movies? Which do you prefer?

If your kids are mature enough, then they could absolutely watch this!

And with mature, I mean if they appreciate this kind of humor that the movie gives us. This movie is not for those kinds of kids who are going around in the school thinking they're cool, calling others stuff they don't even know what it means! I'm not saying that kids aged like 6 or 8 should watch this, and not even kids aged 10-13 if they're very sensitive - but if the kid is watching other shows such as Futurama or Family Guy, they shouldn't have that big of a problem with this movie. Remember that this can vary from kid to kid, but for those who want to go ever further in the genre of Adult/Teen Animation, this movie (and the series its based upon) is an obviously choose! However, the show is way better (5 stars) than the movie adaption, but its a must for the Drawn Together-fans!

Gross.

Don't bother watching this. It has extreme violence, explicit sexual activity and crude indecent language. Drinking and smoking also add up to the effect. Stay away from this movie.
