When it becomes a smash bestseller, Quincy starts giving his cousin, Evan (Chestnut), choice tips on how to win the battle of the sexes.

Not much worth seeing in this mess of a movie.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that this movie has sexual references and situations that are close to the R-line for a PG-13. There's also crude bathroom and sexual humor. It's supposed to be funny that an elderly man repeatedly asks someone to hold his private parts, and there are jokes about crabs and groupies and a discussion of sexual fantasies. Characters use some strong language. Characters drink a lot, especially when upset, and there are repeated jokes about giving liquor to a dog. And the movie seems to approve of manipulation, lies, and using jealousy to get someone to make a commitment. One strength of the movie is its portrayal of attractive and capable minority characters.
