Elevator Pitch The boys decide to go on a trip to Amsterdam but due to the passengers thinking a Bong is a bomb they are arrested and transported to Guantanamo Bay. After escaping they have many adventures as they make their way back home.
Content What did it not contain? Implied oral sex, male and female nudity including “Brazilians” and other pubic topiary, masturbation, much smoking of marijuana, drinking and partaking of magic mushrooms. And some jokes mostly relating to turning accepted movie situations on their heads.
A View It seems that what I saw was the “unrated” version, and it was pretty graphic, but in some ways this is a lot better than the movies which pretend to be some thing that they really are not. It was quite liked by the critics and more than covered its costs on its first weekend. A watch if you like gross out humour, but it is not family viewing.
