Without a Paddle
Source: Catholic News Service
Fitfully funny comedy about three lifelong friends (Seth Green, Matthew Lillard and Dax Shepard), inspired by the untimely death of the clique's fourth amigo, who impulsively set out to make good on a childhood pact and search for a hidden treasure in the Pacific Northwest wilderness. But their canoe trip downriver hits some comical rapids -- including run-ins with a grizzly and a pair of heavily armed backwoods marijuana farmers. As directed by Steven Brill, the film is full of forced frat-house humor and gross-out sight gags, which, while balanced by a positive though schmaltzy message about friendship, leaves the story up the creek. A few sexual encounters, drug content and some violence as well as recurring coarse language and crude humor. 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 PG-13 -- parents are strongly cautioned. Some material may be inappropriate for children under 13.
