Just so you know, there is absolutely NO way that this movie should be rated PG. From alcoholics to gambling to sexual content, it by far deserves a rating of PG-13, and the upper end of that too. There is more sexual content than some parents would be comfortable with, including one scene where a girl is in her underwear in a bed with a boy (nothing shown). There isn't much violence in this movie, aside from torture threats from buck to his niece's boyfriend. There is some swearing in this movie, although it is only minimal. I would say there is good messages and role models in this movie. For one, it shows anyone can change. The niece actually likes her uncle in the end, and in the end the uncle goes from a lazy person and a failure to someone willing to take responsibility for things as a father. There is, as I previously mentioned, quite a big of drinking and gambling, including among teens. The niece's boyfriend drinks beer, and buck does too. Buck gambles and smokes, along with drinking. But now let's get out of the stuff the parents want to know, and in to the stuff the kids want to know. This movie is hysterical. The kids even curse. and that is just priceless. So my recommendation? Very funny, but for kids 10+.
