Correct. That's why it was rated R. Go watch a pixar film if you are looking for a kids movie.

Are u retarded! The poster alone is a clear sign this movie is not for kids.... if his sole job is to review movies that are R rated and then tell parents its not for kids.... then his position is as useful as an ashtray on a motorbike!

I loved this movie when I was a kid. I'm so glad my parents didn't censor out good movies or I'd be like the other brainless teenagers who's parents kept them on cartoons until they were old enough to sneak pg13s.

Vince Vaughn not really

Glenn Vaughn

fucking dumbest thing i've seen for a while.

What the hell is wrong with you! Of course its not for kids, its Rated R for a reason! Are you happy with your self? You blemished the score of an incredibly good award winning movie on an internationally recognized website.... because its not a kids movie. Are you brain dead or just a troll!

Low and behold, another stupid review from Common Sense Media. See that "R" on the back of the movie case? They call that a rating and an R rating means "not for kids". Where the fuck is your common sense?
