Impractical Jokers: The Movie | 2020 | PG-13 | – 4.5.5

content-ratingsWhy is “Impractical Jokers: The Movie” rated PG-13? The MPAA rating has been assigned for “suggestive content, language, some drug references and brief nudity.” The Kids-In-Mind.com evaluation includes several women wearing outfits that reveal partial nudity as they dance suggestively around a man, a couple of videos of a man and a woman acting as if they are in a pornographic movie with role playing and suggestive remarks, and some cleavage revealing outfits; several practical jokes played on people with varying levels of discomfort and danger and no evident injuries; and at least 1 F-word and other strong language. Read our parents’ guide below for details on sexual content, violence & strong language.”


The four guys (Brian Quinn, Joe Gatto, James Murray and Sal Vulcano) from the eponymous TV show undertake a road trip from Staten Island to Miami for a Paula Abdul show and on the way they engage in their trademark embarrassing, and often bawdy, challenges to each other and on unsuspecting strangers. Also with Paula Abdul. Directed by Chris Henchy. [Running Time: 1:32]

Impractical Jokers: The Movie SEX/NUDITY 4

 – A woman poses seductively and tells a man identifying himself as a plumber, “I need my pipes cleaned.” A man doing gardening tells a woman that he is going to “spread some seed,” and she tells him that she can show him where to plant it, as she makes a suggestive gesture.
 Several women wearing skimpy outfits that reveal bare buttocks, backs, legs to the hips and cleavage dance suggestively around a man and rub his shoulders as his family (including some children) looks through a glass window and sings him happy birthday. A nude man struggles to climb into a dinghy in the water and we see his bare back, buttocks and legs and his genitals are covered by an animated face. A woman singing onstage during a concert wears a low-cut leotard that reveals cleavage and her legs to the hips covered by stockings. Teen girls and young women wear halter-tops that reveal cleavage and bare abdomens and backs in a couple of scenes. Teen girls and young women wear shorts that reveal bare legs to the upper thighs in a couple of scenes. A man leans over the bumper of his car exposing thong underwear as another man leans toward him but quickly leaves. A man has a dancing doll dressed like a hula dancer on his dashboard (we see cleavage and bare abdomen as its hips shimmy).

Impractical Jokers: The Movie VIOLENCE/GORE 5

 – A man is tied to the wings of a bi-plane and yells at it flips and does aerial tricks. A man is pushed into a motel room where a white tiger is chained and we hear it purring as it moves closer to the man; he tries to get out and he is clearly frightened as three other men watch him and tell him to say certain things. People in an audience throw furniture and other items at a man on a stage during a concert; a woman onstage clotheslines another man as he runs across the stage and he falls to the floor yelling, and another man pulls a fire alarm causing many people to run out of the building and the entertainer onstage threatens the first man saying, “Your dead. I’ll destroy you.”
 Four men at a restaurant table are approached by a woman and one man holds a dinner knife in his hand expecting the woman to be threatening but she is not. A man holds a wooden board and threatens three other men with it, swiping it across a table and knocking food and plates onto the ground. A man slaps another man in the face.
 People on a tour in a cave are alarmed when a man wearing makeup (blue tinged flesh) and elfin ears crawls out of a darkened area in the cave and claims to have been there for many years since he was a boy. Four men each carry an urn and tell people that they are going to read a eulogy for the deceased person in the urn; they read inappropriate eulogies to the unwitting people and get negative reactions until one man is told that his is good. A man dressed at Santa Claus sits in a shopping mall and interacts with children saying unusual things; he bounces a boy on his lap and pretends to fall asleep, he tells a girl that she mustn’t talk until he tells her to, and an adult man sits on Santa’s lap and he bounces him on his knee briefly. Three men take a car and leave a fourth man with a horse and an ancient Roman armor costume to wear (we see him riding in the heat). A man has what looks like a real tattoo of a young man’s face done on his leg. An expandable tube pops out of the trunk of a car toward two men and one man jumps.
 A man talks about needing to “blast something up the tail pipe” of his car when it breaks down and two men stop to help him. Four men argue in several scenes. A man says, “I will vomit everywhere” (he does not).
 A man sprays an aerosol can and lights the spray with a lighter in a convenience store. Four young men sneak into a concert by pretending to be security guards.

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.
