Just no.

Movie is literally not funny and has too many “coincidental accidents” for it to be humorous. It had one funny moment in the movie and that was the beginning. Other than that the whole movie was a complete dumpster fire. Scary movie 2 is funnier than this, and that movie was not as funny as scary movie 4. Bottom line, this movie sucked terribly.

Crazy but funny

Not for children - this movie is full of sexual jokes and the whole movie focuses on how much worse the boy's life will be if he can't have sex. Graphic porn and close ups of a penis shown as well as plenty of swearing and innuendos.

Too much sex

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (3):
Kids say (18):

This comedy has no peers when it comes to exploring uncharted dimensions of phallic humor and crudity. Just when it seems it can't get any raunchier or outrageous -- or funnier -- it does. The Package is too long. However, when there are 40 minutes to go and the viewer can't imagine that anything else could happen to the beleaguered crew and the "precious cargo," there is another sillier, more vulgar challenge that must be met. Performances are exuberant and engaging, and the five young actors at the film's center give it their all, particularly Daniel Doheny and Eduardo Franco, whose courage as actors knows no bounds. It's surely not for kids, or for the squeamish, but for folks who don't mind having a literal penis in their face for more than 90 minutes, it's solid gold.
