this movie is an” F ” in my opinion. NOT FOR CHILDREN or YOUNG TEENS. how could parent previews give it a C-?
the content is simply talking about or enacting stupid sex.  and stupid relationships. teaches to make fun of the woman’s sexual body. uses sexual words i’ve never heard before in any movie. also a snake for the mans. im soooo angry that my 13 year old saw this.  the previews are to get all age groups interested. steve carell stooped so low. the words and scenes in this movie are not PG13. it’s an R.

As I left the house to watch this movie with a friend, my 14 and 15 year olds asked me to see whether it was appropriate for their viewing.  I couldn’t help watching the movie from their perspective (especially given that there were a number of young teens in the front row).  This movie is inappropriate for kids and teens on many levels.  While comical in parts, the sexual innuendo is over the top.  Casual references to the female anatomy and sex are tacky and distasteful.  The shots of scantily clothed men and women made sex seem so casual.  I am also offended by the assumption made in so many films these days that men and women sleep together before marriage and that it is common and acceptable.  I am disappointed in Steve Carrell.  Be aware of the clips at the end of the film—the tackiest part of all.
