Did we miss something on diversity?

A lot of sexual humor

I read some reviews on common sense and decided this seemed ok to watch with my 12 year old daughter....but I should have read more reviews!! There is pretty much non stop sexual humor, sexual references, cuss words, etc. We did watch the whole movie- mostly because I was hoping half of it was going over my daughter’s head- but I apologized to her when it was over. I certainly wouldn’t make the same choice again. There was no nudity, which was good- and it’s a humorous theme for sure. And definitely not as raunchy as Rebel Wilson’s other movies. Even so/ I would recommend 14 or maybe even older.

Should be R rated

I can handle a little of color humor, but this was non-stop for sure. I read the reviews on this site to see if it would be ok for my almost 13 year olds...the reviews seemed like it wasn’t too bad...it was awful! Even they were embarrassed at the non-stop sex references and “jokes”. I guess with Rebel I should have known. Parents beware!!
