Middle America will never be the same when comedian Pauly Shore travels to the Midwest and becomes the SON-IN-LAW. Shore stars as Crawl, L.A.'s funkiest college student, who's hilariously out of his element when he spends Thanksgiving at the family farm of a straitlaced college co-ed (Carla Gugino). Crawl's unlike anything the Midwesterners have ever seen -- outside the barn that is! But before long, Crawl's plowing his way into their hearts with his outrageous antics and offbeat attempts at farming. Get ready for a truckload of laughs and a half-ton of hysteria with this totally irreverent comedy!

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Son in Law is a 1993 movie in which Pauly Shore plays a California dude trying to fit in with a rural South Dakota farm family in order to woo his love interest. There are frequent euphemisms for sex, genitalia, and masturbation. During a bachelor party, two characters have their beers spiked with pills, which causes them to blackout and wake up semi-clothed and lying close to each other. There is brief male nudity (buttocks). A college freshman girl is objectified by the lead character as "USDA prime teriyaki." During a Halloween party in a college dorm building, a white character wears facepaint underneath warpaint to look like a Native American. There is underage drinking in the college dorm building. Profanity includes "a--hole," "son of a bitch," "s--t," "d--k," "damn," and "hell."
