What if your mother were about to marry your worst nightmare, the man who tormented your youth, who still haunts your nightmares--Mr. Woodcock? John Farley (Seann William Scott--The Dukes of Hazzard), author of a best-selling book about letting go of the past, violates his own advice when he returns home to accept his community's highest honor. There, he learns, to his horror, that his widowed mother (Academy Award winner Susan Sarandon - Shall We Dance?) is engaged to his old high school gym teacher, Mr. Woodcock (Academy Award winner Billy Bob Thornton--Bad Santa), whose sadistic acts plagued John's youth. Now, abetted by his nerdy old pal Nedderman (Ethan Suplee--The Butterfly Effect), John will stop at nothing to derail the relationship.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that this lowbrow Billy Bob Thornton comedy revolves around an ongoing, immature competition between a woman's adult son and her suitor. In other words, expect lots of slapstick violence and childish behavior. Sexual jokes include the older man bragging about his prowess and sleeping with the young man's mother (in one scene, the younger man hides underneath a bed while his mother and her boyfriend have noisy sex above him). There's some drinking and smoking and plenty of strong language, including "a--hole," "s--t," and derogatory terms describing women and homosexual men.
