When a record company intern (Jonah Hill) is placed in charge of chaperoning and delivering a famous partier and rock star (Russell Brand) to a concert at the LA Greek Theater, what should have been a quick trip to the airport turns into a 72-hour party that changes their lives. Also with Rose Byrne, Elisabeth Moss and Sean "Diddy" Combs. Directed by Nicholas Stoller. [1:49]

SEX/NUDITY 9 - A man discusses with a woman how a different man had engaged in intercourse with various women, and he proposes that he, the other man and the woman have a "threesome"; the three are later seen lying in bed together (the men wearing briefs and boxers and the woman covered by a sheet), the woman is kissing both of the men, it is implied that the woman receives oral sex from one of the men while she kisses the other man (she moans loudly) and the woman is seen kissing one of the men until the other man interrupts, kisses the man himself and it is implied he grabs the other man's genitals.
 After a man instructs a woman to have intercourse with another man, the woman straddles a man and she shows him her genital area (we don't see anything): the two discuss her pubic hair, the woman insists that the man should have sex with her, she pushes a large sex toy into his mouth, pulls off his pants (his boxers seen), it is then implied that she pushes the sex toy into his anus, he winces and later remarks to two other men that he felt like he had been raped.

 It is implied that a man is performing oral sex on a woman under a blanket: the man remarks that he has an erection and the woman says she is not interested in intercourse, but makes a crude remark that she will allow the man to touch her breasts while he masturbates.
 A man holds a woman's bare breasts in his hands. Men are seen in a strip club, where breasts of multiple topless women are seen as they perform in front of groups of men, straddling them and dancing suggestively as men watch; men remark on the appearance of the women's breasts.

A group of women dance suggestively in low-cut, short dresses; the women bend over and show their bare buttocks, obscured slightly by a flower, and one of the women makes a crude gesture with her hands and mouth. A man thrusts his crotch against a television camera (we see a close-up of his clothed crotch). A man dances suggestively, thrusting his hips as he rips his pant-leg to reveal his bare upper thigh. A group of older men are seen dancing suggestively by thrusting their pelvises, and one of the men is shirtless. An older man is seen wearing a Speedo-style bathing suit (his bare chest is visible), as another man smacks his behind.

 A shirtless man is seen wrapping his arms around a woman as she lies in bed.
 Men make crude jokes about engaging in intercourse with various women, including a man, who is continually making crude remarks about having intercourse with various women, as well as asking a woman if he could speak to her genitals; the woman replies (also using crude language) that her genitals miss his genitals.

VIOLENCE/GORE 6 - A man stands on top of a tall building and threatens to jump, turns, jumps two stories into a swimming pool, and hits his arm on the wall of the pool, which causes a compound fracture of his arm: broken bone is seen coming through the skin of his forearm, blood clouds the pool water and blood is seen on the man's arm and later seeping through a bandage.
 Footage is seen of people firing machine guns at one another, and a man throws a bottle at a man, which engulfs another man in flames. A man is seen walking in front of gunfire (he's unharmed) and then holding up a blood and tissue-covered newborn infant.
 Two men have a fight in the middle of a party: they hit each other with musical instruments, one man pulls the other down a flight of stairs, they throw plates and bottles of champagne at each other, and after one of the men pulls out a gun, a third man joins the fight and punches one of the men in the back, causing him to fire the gun in the air; one man knocks the other man down and begins to drag him by his feet around the room and throwing empty bottles at him, and one of the men drops a lighter, causing an overturned bottle of alcohol to catch on fire (the three men are then seen running from the building).

A CAVEAT: We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and some of our early standards were not as stringent as they are now. We therefore need to revisit many older reviews, especially those written prior to 1998 or so; please keep this in mind if you're consulting a review from that period. While we plan to revisit and correct older reviews our resources are limited and it is a slow, time-consuming process.




INAPPROPRIATE ADS? We have little control over ads since we belong to ad agencies that serve ads automatically; a standing order should prevent provocative ads, but inappropriate ads do sneak in.
