The Inappropriateness of ‘Funny People’


This is hilarious. There is a sight called Screen It! that reviews movies based on how appropriate they are for the family. They rate films based on several categories incluing alcohol/drug use, disrespectful/bad attitude, guns/weapons, imitative behavior, music (scary/tense), music (inappropriate), sex/nudity, smoking, tense family scenes and several others.

Well, apparently the folks over at Screen It! do not care much for Judd Appatow’s latest, Funny People. On their website they have over 100 listed reasons why Funny People is inappropriate. You should really head over there and see the whole list, but I thought I would post the 20 funniest.

NOTE: There are some mild spoilers below.

Top 15 Reasons to NOT See Funny People (if you have little kids)

15) ALCOHOL/DRUGS – “A stand-up comedian equates a certain food offering with drugs, asking what kind of “crack-head” thing that is, and that he’s “tweaking” after having some.”

14) MUSIC (INAPPROPRIATE) – “George does a mock song about having a medium-sized penis and that includes several sexual uses of the “f” word, including about one woman just lying there afterwards thinking she should have “f*cked” Jean-Claude Van Damme.”

13) BLOOD/GORE – “Meant as a metaphor, Clarke states, ‘I about sh*t my panties.’ “

12) SEX/NUDITY – “We see George in just swim trunks while doing laps.”

11) BAD ATTITUDE – “Despite how it obviously makes his wife feel, Clarke goes on about how attractive Cameron Diaz is.

10) TENSE FAMILY SCENES – “Ira states that his mom thinks his dad (her husband) is the devil.”

9) SEX/NUDITY – “Eminem and George discuss the drawbacks of fame, including if he really wants to “f*ck another chick” who doesn’t like you. Seeing Ray Romano starring at him and George, Eminem angrily yells out, “Would you like to f*ck me? Would you like me to f*cking bend over?” Ira tells Ray to say no.”

8) FRIGHTENING SCENES – “Clarke chases after George, tackles & pins him, and punches him several times, but this is all played fairly lightly.”

7) BLOOD/GORE – “Ira does a comedy bit about farting on an airplane and it being so loud onboard that no one notices. He makes a mock sound of that, while also saying his “asshole” has been open the entire time during a conversation with someone. George later criticizes Ira’s joke material and that it’s a turn-off for women. He then imitates a woman sarcastically telling Ira to “jack off” on her and fart in her face.”

6) PROFANITY – “At least 154 “f” words (4 used with “mother,” 35 used sexually as are terms including “banged,” “bone,” “do,” “laid” and “screwed”), 57 “s” words, 34 slang terms using male genitals (“d*ck,” “c*ck,” “c*cks*cker,” “wiener,” “dong” and “pr*ck”), 6 using female ones (“p*ssy”), 5 for breasts (variations of “t*t” and “t*tty”), 27 asses (12 used with “hole”), 3 damns, 3 hells, 9 uses of “Oh God,” 5 of “Jesus Christ,” 3 of “Oh my God” and 1 use each of “For God’s sakes,” “God,” “G-damn” and “Swear to God.””

5) SMOKING – “We see a photo of John Belushi with a cigarette, while another framed photo on a wall shows a cigarette in someone’s hand.”

4) BAD ATTITUDE – “After hearing Ira’s “cheer up” playlist he created for him, George identifies Bob Marley and the song with the lyric “Every little thing’s gonna be all right.” He then adds that Marley had cancer and thus everything wasn’t all right.”

3) IMITATIVE BEHAVIOR – Phrases: “Get off the f*cking phone,” “You trying to f*ck with me?” “M*therf*cker,” “Get the f*ck out of here,” “I will f*ck that girl in 10 days,” “Don’t make me f*ck her,” “Don’t make me f*ck my way out of this corner,” “F*cked up,” “How the f*ck should I know?” “I f*cking killed up there,” “F*cking awesome,” “F*ck you,” “This f*cking guy,” “F*ck Facebook in the face,” “What the f*ck /was all that about/are you doing/is happening?” “He is such a f*cking nerd,” “F*ck me like Mer-man,” “So f*ck me” (nonsexual), “What, are you Joe f*cking Biden?” “You stupid f*cking idiot,” “I’m f*cking cold as sh*t,” “F*ck yeah,” “You’re a star f*cker,” “F*ck around with,” “You f*cking ass,” “You’re so f*cking selfish,” “Are you f*cking with me?” “Yippee-ki-yay, m*therf*cker,” “You f*cked up,” “I’ll f*ck this m*therf*cker up,” “F******ck” (said in a drawn-out fashion), “F*ckers,” “Go f*ck your whores,” “I’m so f*cking glad,” “Shut the f*ck up,” “Get the f*ck out of my life,” “(You) F*cking asshole,” “You f*cking suck,” “You’re f*cking contagious,” “You’re a f*cking no thought,” “F*ck the sh*t out of that girl,” “T*tty f*cking,” “That sh*t was painful/is sad,” “Oh sh*t,” “My sh*t worked up there,” “You had some funny sh*t,” “Piece of sh*t,” “I don’t have time for this sh*t,” “Don’t give a sh*t,” “Shoot the sh*t with,” “Bullsh*t,” “Oh sh*t,” “Slap that sh*t,” “I sh*t myself and had a boner at the same time,” “I about sh*t my panties,” “American sh*t” “Sh*tty,” “This is deep sh*t,” “Good sh*t,” “You’re in a heap of sh*t,” “It’s a d*ck move,” “Mousey like a mouse you want to stick your d*ck into,” “Balls” (testicles), “Why don’t you call it Megan Fox blows someone?” “Do you ever get tired of talking about your d*ck?” “Jack off,” “Hermione’s got some big ol’ t*tties,” “I’m getting a quarter chub” (erection), “I have a skinny vagina,” “Did you suck the devil’s d*ck?” “D*ck-heads,” “Ball cleavage,” “I’ve been eating a lot of rhino c*ck,” “You’re such a d*ck,” “Aussie p*ssies,” “That is a p*ssy move,” “(My) N*gger” (said by a black man), “Sucks,” “Bitch(es),” “I screwed up,” “Dumb ass,” “Don’t kiss his ass too hard,” “Chick,” “You little freak,” “Fags,” “Your little faggy childhood,” “Don’t be super-bummed out,” “Dumb-dumb,” “Jeez,” “Shut up,” “Band of bloody cheese-eaters,” “Freaking out,” “Screw you” and “What the hell is going on?”

2) SEX/NUDITY – “Leo does a stand-up comedy bit about overhearing his “d*ck” and “balls” talking, with the latter asking the former if their owner is hurting the latter (a masturbation joke).”

1) SEX/NUDITY – “On several occasions, we see clips from George’s movie where he’s been shrunken down to baby size in just a diaper.”
