Note: The following text may contain spoilers

THAT'S MY BOY is a comedy in which a man becomes a single father as a teenager, but his lack of parenting skills come back to haunt him when he meets his estranged but very successful adult son years later.

Language

There is use of strong language ('f**k').

Sex

References are made to oral sex and masturbation, including sight of sticky tissues littering a room. References are made to an underage boy having sex with his adult teacher, and there are visual and verbal references to incest. No graphic detail of these events is shown, and they are clearly presented as being inappropriate.

Drugs

In one scene a man rubs white powder onto his gums, and in another a bong is smoked. The work as a whole does not promote or encourage drug taking.

There are occasional racist comments and slapstick violence, including a running joke in which a character hits people over the head with a bottle of beer.
