parents guide

February 09, 2007


Rating -- PG-13

What it's about -- A nerdy orphan marries an obese bully, of a family of obese bullies, only to have Ms. Right roll back into town.

The Kid Attractor Factor -- Eddie Murphy in a fat suit. As a woman who swears, punches and breaks wind.

Good lessons/bad lessons -- Don't marry out of gratitude.

Violence -- Comic, involving beatings and harpoonings.

Language -- Too blue to be a family film.

Sex -- Implied, lewdly discussed.

Drugs -- None.

Parents' advisory -- OK for 13-and-older, but not as family friendly as Murphy's Nutty Professor, Daddy Day Care or Dr. Dolittle.
