Beer and burps; only for Broken Lizard fans.

what parents need to know

Parents need to know that this intentionally stupid, vulgar comedy features incessant beer drinking. Characters are frequently drunk, hung over, throwing up, burping, and peeing in public urinals. Most scenes are set in bars, at parties, or at drinking competitions. Several scenes feature topless women and/or women engaged in sexual activity with lusty or drunken men. Crude humor and language are featured throughout the film, including verbal and visual references to sex/ejaculation, prostitution, Jewishness, obesity, masturbation, flatulence, funerals, social expectations, and boundaries. Characters also smoke cigarettes, cigars, and pot.

Top Critic Reviews

Rotten: The bloated running time (110 minutes!) certainly doesn't do the film any favors...

Just doesn't do it for me, probably Broken Lizard's second best work after Super Troopers. Has some memorable moments.

Instead of a chick flick, this movie is a guy movie - with drinking, burping, bare breasts, stupid characters, etc. I found the beer (and humour) tasteless. Pass on this movie.

Hilarious...I find that anything directed by Jay Chandrasekhar is usually pretty damn good.
