Dysfunktional Family | 2003 | R | - 7.1.10

Comedy concert movie, with Eddie Griffin's stand-up routines interspersed with footage of his eccentric Kansas City family. Among other family members we get to meet are Uncle Buckey who was a pimp, and Uncle Curtis, who has an extensive porn collection (much of which he filmed himself). [1:24]

SEX/NUDITY 7 - We see a man and a woman having sex on TV: we see them kissing, hear them moaning and see the woman's bare buttocks (there are a few other scenes like this throughout the movie; in two instances the woman's bare breasts are seen). We see a photo album of women's crotches with a black dot covering the genitalia. We see women wearing outfits that reveal cleavage, bare legs and shoulders. A man slaps women's buttocks. A man talks about sex and male and female anatomy, and a man talks in detail about oral sex. A man talks about sneaking a girl into his house when he was a boy and having sex with her. A man talks about watching and admiring women's buttocks. A man holds his crotch in a suggestive manner several times. We see a woman's bare back to the hip. Remarks are made about promiscuity and prison sex.

VIOLENCE/GORE 1 - Jokes are made about the events of 9/11. There are remarks about child abuse. A man talks about his mother hitting him with a belt and trying to run him down with a car when he was a boy. A man talks about hitting his father.

CAVEATS

Be aware that while we do our best to avoid spoilers it is impossible to disguise all details and some may reveal crucial plot elements.

We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and older reviews are not as complete & accurate as recent ones; we plan to revisit and correct older reviews as resources and time permits.

Our ratings and reviews are based on the theatrically-released versions of films; on video there are often Unrated, Special, Director's Cut or Extended versions, (usually accurately labelled but sometimes mislabeled) released that contain additional content, which we did not review.
