in my opinion it should have been given a D to F rating not a C+ extremely inappropriate and way worse than Bounty Hunter. this movie should have been rated R.  It was discusting and definately not appropriate for children.  The strip club scenes lasted for a very long time and left nothing to the imagination.  I walked out!

Funny movie that should’ve been rated “R.”  In no way was this film appropriate for a 13 year old child.  Nearly constant sexual references that were quite far from subtle.  It includes topics no decent parent would want their 13 year old child to even have to consider, such as anal intercourse, foursomes (not about golf), “doing it” in all kinds of ways…the list goes on, and on, and on, and on.

The strip club scene was beyond belief - how anyone could rate this PG-13, I don’t know.  And how this site could give it a C+ is even more beyond me.  I say it’s better to err on the side of caution.  Some parents might see “C+” and figure it’s okay.  IT IS NOT.  And, I’m a pretty liberal parent.

This movie was AWFUL! It’s full of crude, crass, low-brow sexual innuendo and dialogue. It’s title suggests it makes a good date-night movie, but my wife and I were left in a very uncomfortable mood! I wouldn’t recommend this to anyone!
