Whoa!  From a woman’s perspective, I was really disappointed with this film.  Saw it this weekend, because I am attending an out-of-town wedding next weekend, the bride & bridal party were seeing the movie, and I wanted to be part of the group, in spirit.  Knew I was going to see sexually explicit scenes & “potty humor”, & hear profanity.  Never did I expect the level of sex scenes and bad language.

The thing that really bothered me though was the sub-level themes of anger and sadness.  The only happy girl in the film was the unfeminine outsider-type character.  I left the theater, saying to my husband, if this is the way women in the 30’s actually live, actually feel about life, I feel really sorry for them.  I don’t know how they get thru the day with this negativity, and selling themselves out sexually.

Even with all the media hoopla of a “great woman’s comedy”, I would skip this one & watch “My Big Fat Greek Wedding” again.  Much more fun & funny!

Having seen this movie with my wife, I cannot figure out why it is rated R while other far more offensive movies, such as Adam Sandler’s latest self-castration-fest film, receive a lower rating. There was no nudity, no significant violence, no violence directed at the genitals, not much of anything beyond the same cursing I hear in PG movies and increasingly on television. Every scene could be shown on network television without cutting anything other than some of the curse words, and it probably will be eventually. The bathroom humor didn’t show anything other than vomiting. No one’s bare butt was seen and if the actresses didn’t say that they were going to the bathroom under their dresses, you wouldn’t be able to tell. The closest thing to a sex scene was 2 scenes in which the main character is in bed with her boyfriend, but the covers are pulled up and cover everything. Both of those scenes could be shown on network television right now and not be censored. There is no shooting, or stabbing, or graphic violence of any kind, unless you count Kristen Wiig assaulting a giant cookie which ultimately gets the better of her.

My wife laughed all through this film, all the way out to the car in the parking lot after the film, all night while we were trying to go to sleep, and 2 days later she was still remembering scenes and laughing. It definitely has crude humor, but it is far less crude than most of the movies and even TV shows being shown today. Every comedy on CBS over the past year has used as crude, and often cruder humor, plus sexual violence, than anything in this movie.

I don’t know that I would take young kids to see this, but teenagers won’t be shocked by anything in the film, and I can’t think of anything that would cause parents much concern about their kids seeing in it. It really should be a rated PG-13 movie, not R.

A friend saw and was shocked. She said the language was horrible and there were scenes referencing orgasms.  I thought it might be a cleaver comedy but am sadly disappointed from others comments. I wanted to see it but was a little bit put off by the R rating which is never good.
