What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that this movie has some crass jokes and situations, excessive sexual innuendo, and some moderate profanity. Parents should be aware that there are copulating animals, sexually aroused humans, a nude female showering in silhouette, and enough cleavage and innuendo to put a James Bond movie to shame.
