Audacious but surprisingly sweet comedy about an office worker (Johnny Knoxville) who reluctantly conspires with his sleazy uncle (Brian Cox) to "fix" the Special Olympics by posing as a mentally challenged athlete in order to pay the medical expenses of an injured man he was forced to fire. Though some may find its premise distasteful, director Barry W. Blaustein's satire sensitively walks a fine line between indelicate and uplifting, ultimately imparting a feel-good message about looking beyond stereotypes and acknowledging the dignity and humanity we all share. Considerable off-color humor, an irreverent sight gag, some crude language and an instance of rough language. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is A-III -- adults. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is PG-13 -- parents are strongly cautioned. Some material may be inappropriate for children under 13.
