Funny. I loved seeing Gerald Butler in a comedy

I think that children shouldn't be allowed to watch it due to so many references to see put personally as an adult I just laughed all the way through it.

This title has:

Too much sex
age 12+


There are a few scenes with sex involved but not to much. One of the deleted scenes shows abbys skirt getting ripped off by a car and she just stands there in her underpants. One other scene were she wears vibrating panties and another were her undies are seen
