Why was this made?

It's disgusting! The way this kid treats his father... Are you kidding me!? Then the way he talks I don't understand how this was allowed to be made or how any sane person can find it funny.
The sex talk? Calling everything gay? Victimizing women through voyerizm?
Shut it off at the upskirt shots of dads girlfriend! This movie does nothing but reinforce how messed up society is. I mean it's called a comedy! In real life this boy should have gotten help. The way the father reacted after he walked in on his engaging in autoaphixiation was extremely unbelievable!
If any one allows a child to see this they really should have their parenting skills checked. And anyone finding entertainment out of this disgusting heap of demented sex and awful parenting should really think about seeing a psychiatrist for a mental evaluation!

Great movie with an important message. However, this is only for adults.

The turning point of the film is when Robin Williams weeps for his dead son, who is graphically hanging from a strap around his own neck, having accidentally killed himself while masturbating over pictures he took of Robin Williams' girl-friend's up-skirt panties during dinner the same night (graphically shown).

It's booked as a comedy.

Robin Williams' character, fully in shock, then fakes a suicide note, cleans up his son's privates, moves his son's dead body to hang in the closet instead of by the bed, kisses him on the forehead -- and THEN THE COMEDY ENSUES! Wheee.

Nobody should see this. To say it has a redeeming quality is to fail to see the failure inside of the "inside dark humor". This is not "Heathers" -- everything I described to you is graphic -- as is the discussion earlier on between the son and a friend regarding scatalogical sex acts -- men defecating on women in pornography. You decide.
