Slapstick antics are pervasive in this script about family discord. A character is frequently mocked and shamed in a video that goes viral on social media. Characters lie to one another, including a father who doesn’t tell his employer that he is taking time off work. Parents bribe their children. A man operates a van while being distracted by a phone, his children, a pet and other commotions within the vehicle: Near car accidents occur. Prankster kids get reprimanded by a police officer. Rats and cockroaches are seen in a shabby hotel. Birds attack people and they get covered in droppings. A van gets stuck and splatters mud all over a group of characters. Luggage falls off the back of a trailer causing road hazards. A boat trailer falls of the hitch of a moving vehicle while a person is aboard the vessel. Characters steal, break and enter and make threats to others. Mild property damage occurs.

Sexual Content:
The movie is full of crude bathroom humor, including diapers, smelly bowel movements, urinating into a bottle (with sound effects), and eavesdropping on a stranger using the bathroom.
