Review

I have to say that this was one of the funniest movies I have seen for quite a long time.

I will say now that this movie is R and it definitely lives up to its rating.There is constant cursing and every other word is the eff word. CommonSenseMedia.org says that it is iffy for 16 years. Click here to see their website.

The story line was great and kept you guessing the entire time as to who the drug lord was as you never really found out until the very end. There were a lot of falls and moments when you cringed with pain (i.e. shooting someone where the sun doesn’t shine)

But the entire time you were laughing your head off.

There isn’t really anything sexual in it but a few jokes and talk about what they have done or the lack of what they have done, but nothing too inappropriate in that department….well mostly.

It was very simply done with no special effects. There was only like 3 people killed, and they were shot and one explosion. Otherwise it was all language and just comedy. I liked that there were no special effects because everything now has a ton of special effects in it, an example being Pacific Rim which has just come out.

It has quite a few one-liners which will keep you laughing after it, so it does stick with you for a while.

It was also nice that the two main characters were women and they were strong women as well. Not many movies have strong women in them, let alone having them as the lead so that was another reason that I went to go and check this out.

Overall this is just a cute movie to see but you should be at least 18 or older. Yes there were younger children in the movie theatre, but I don’t really agree with that, but that is just my opinion.

I would definitely recommend you going to see it or at least checking it out later.
