Content This is really an excuse for a lot of gross out jokes and some gore and violence. Some of the jokes are verbal and slightly entertaining but others are quite extreme. There is no nudity, although young women appear in their underwear, some jokes around sexual activity – no – a lot of jokes around sexual activity, you’d have to see it.
A View I understood what it was about, but the Simpsons used to spoof movies with much more style. I watched because I am becoming a bit of a collector of franchise films and now I am close to completing the set of this one. Really only a watch if you are a teenager I think, and have seen the films spoofed but it made a fortune more than covering its costs on its first weekend.
