Language: The script contains one sexual expletive used in a non-sexual context, along with one crude hand gesture. Over two-dozen scatological slangs and curses are heard as well as half a dozen terms of Deity. Other vulgar expressions, derogatory sexual references and ethno-cultural slurs occur more than a dozen times.

Finding a family friendly spoof without an excess of crude content can be difficult. However there are a few tamer choices available. The sophisticated world of secret agents becomes a parody in the hands of Johnny English when the clumsy officer becomes the country’s top spy. The Princess Bride combines goofy humor and memorable characters in this spoof of fairytales, medieval knights and maidens in distress. Star Trek and Star Wars fans will appreciate the subtle parody of the space comedy Galaxy Quest.
