Comic free-for-all in which a quirky failed actor turned high school drama teacher (Steve Coogan) works with two favorite students (Skylar Astin and Phoebe Strole) and a gifted newcomer (Joseph Julian Soria) to mount the titular sequel -- a cathartic extravaganza of his own creation -- in an effort to halt the shutdown of his program, despite growing community controversy and the indifference of his caustic wife (Catherine Keener). Director and co-writer Andrew Fleming's provocative, sometimes overreaching satire, which takes on everything from racial attitudes to child abuse to the gulf between Christian spirituality and celebrity culture, may strike many as wayward, but its underlying values are humane. Fleeting frontal male and brief rear nudity, much sexual and some irreverent humor, frequent rough and crude language, a few uses of profanity, child molestation, adultery and fertility themes, and drug references. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is L—limited adult audience, films whose problematic content many adults would find troubling. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is R—restricted; under 17 requires accompanying parent or adult guardian.
