Reunited and it feels so bad.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that kids will hear much swearing and see fistfighting and gun battles, although there's no blood. There's also a good deal of stereotyping, as the story relies on swarthy foreigners as bad guys (this time it's Arabs who come out looking bad.) The breasts of "primitive" black woman are shown, and there are plenty of juvenile sexual allusions, including a joke about being stuck in a prison with inmates who want to be "proctologists." The leads also have sex, although there's no nudity involved.

A Lot or A Little?
