I have been waiting for this movie to come out because it looked like a really good, FAMILY, viewing.

Step Brothers
What a disappointment.  It all began with the bad language which we hoped would diminish as the 8 year old and 15 year old were watching with us.  Almost every second word was F*&#@ which started to irritate me after about the first 15 minutes.  Then came the "what i will do with your mother bit" which almost prompted me to put it off and then the final crunch came when the one step brother physically placed his testicles on his other step brothers drum set (whether actual testicles or fake, the fact was that they showed it).  That was when i turned it off - it was far from family viewing, embarassing to be quite honest.  The concept behind the type of comedy would have been brilliant but without the sordid language and visual put offs.  If you are planning to view it with kids, mother in law or mother then dont bother - quite disrespectful.  If you find this kind of stuff densely amusing then i suppose take it.  Just a waste of money and not for the family.

Eagle Eye
Absolutely brilliant.  From the time you put the movie on until the end there is non stop action - brilliant story, great actors and a real thrill.  No time to even put the kettle on.  Highly recommended

I haven't watched either, but I agree wholeheartedly that I find bad language and inappropriate visuals very off-putting. That's probably just the way I was brought up and how I live - the same things could be totally in order for people who don't worry about swearing and so on. However, then the distributors of the movies should clearly indicate what to expect so that one is informed and can choose for oneself.
