Beneath the raunch and silliness is a lot of positivity: loyal friends give love and support (and call each other on their mistakes). A group of women gives thanks for their time together. It's much sweeter and more uplifting than you might expect given the premise and plot. Also raises thoughtful questions about public image vs. private happiness and the value of work/a career. Unabashedly sex-positive in tone.
Positive Role Models & Representations
Dina is aggressive and scary in scenes presented as comedic. She hits a coworker with a toaster and a trash can when he steals her lunch, and she punches several people in the face -- once during an all-out bar brawl. She breaks a bottle and threatens a man with it. She also makes a string of threats to the same man, including throwing hot grits on him and castrating him with her bare hands.
The main characters are looking for sex and romance (in that order) during their weekend away, and they find it. Two men are seen nude, one at length from the front and one briefly from the back (both scenes are comic, rather than sexual). Graphic jokes about oral sex (including a running gag about using a citrus fruit as an aid), body parts, and consequence-free casual sex. A man offers women money for sex. One woman is frequently called a "ho" and characterized as a home-wrecker. Kissing, joking gropes.
Frequent strong language includes "f--k," "f--king," "motherf----r," "s--t," "bitch," "ass," "a--hole," "damn," "hell," "p---y," "t-ts," "t--ties," "booty," "sucked off," the "N" word, "ho," "d--k," and "c--k."
The characters' trip is sponsored by Essence; the logo is seen repeatedly on invitations, buildings, signs, pillows, etc., and the Essence annual convention is mentioned several times. The Essence logo is frequently paired with the Coca-Cola logo. Liquor brands are mentioned by name: Bailey's, Hennessey, Patron.
Ease of Play
Characters drink cocktails, beer, wine, and everything else they can get their hands on. One character orders four shots on a short airplane flight. Characters talk about getting "white-boy wasted." One character buys a bottle of absinthe; she slops it into drinks, and everyone has visions. One woman jokes about sneaking marijuana onto a plane by putting it "where the sun don't shine." Two drunk women pee on a crowd from above; one accidentally, one deliberately.
