When I saw this in a Multiplex the audience were falling about with laughter so it must be doing something right. Three couples each with kids or, to put it another way, three couples each with the kids from hell. It's a simple premise; once they get through fantasizing about killing their respective kids the adults decide to play the kids at their own game and show them how it feels: in a typical example a boy who consistently makes farting noises and pretends they emanate from the maid is slipped an ultra strong laxative by his mother and then finds his father has nailed the lid on the toilet seat. Subtle it's not but funny ... yes, that example is about the most off-color in the whole movie. It's not going to win any prizes except one for passing the time entertainingly and at least it isn't Matrix #19
