Heads-up: Joke about autism

It should be noted that there is a throwaway joke made about one of the main characters losing her virginity to an autistic guy. Rude, didn't add to the movie AT ALL, and it caused me to drop a star from my rating. Otherwise, it wasn't a bad movie. The script was not strong, but there were several funny moments (brought by Devine, Middleditch, and Trimbur), and the jump scares were fun. It does help if your teen is familiar with the slasher film formula (and the "losing your virginity at camp" cliche). The sexy stuff was a bit much, but goofy and no actual sex. The word "fag" is said once. If you do go ahead and watch the film with your teen(s), I think the ableist joke (as well as the homophobic slur) is worth mentioning and should be included in the "What Families Can Talk About".

The Final Girls Review

The Final Girls is a hilarious humor mix with horror and has some really effective scenes filled with emotion and depth. I was completely surprised by this film. There is quite a bit of sexual humor mixed with uncompleted and interrupted sexual content. Overall The Final Girs is a perfect horror comedy filled with a surprising amount of emotional depth, which I loved. I'm going to give The Final Girls a 10/10.

This title has:

Too much sex
