Only in America with Larry the Cable Guy NOT GOOD FOR KIDS

This show is definitely NOT for kids, adults only. My hubby watches it once in a blue moon, and the other night Larry said: 'It's been hot in this area today - I saw a girl running around in a tank top and the temperature wasn't the only thing rising around here'...ewwwwwwwwww! gross! Not to mention all the other 'wonderful' stuff he says - here's another gem: 'I'm going to Somalia to make a video called Girls Gone Hungry' ...Only In America HAS NOTHING to do with American History - if you want to teach your kids about history, DO NOT use this show.

This title has:

Too much sex
Too much swearing

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: (3 ):
Kids say: Not yet rated

The series shares historical details that are unique to America's small town culture, but does so with the help of the host's trademark hillbilly gags and bathroom humor. As a result, the show feels more about the comedian than about the country's distinctive history.

In its own way, the series celebrates the uniqueness of America. There are some mildly funny moments, too. History buffs might be disappointed in the way these stories are being presented here, but folks who like this sort of humor will find it entertaining.
