PG-13, Redefined!!!
11 March 2008 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

In a nutshell, Witless Protection offends anyone with the minimum IQ of a shoe! That's about it. If you're still interested and want to know what my reasons are, keep reading...

I'm a 28 years old white English man with no religious preference and a skin as thick as a rhino when it comes to sense of humour and tolerance for bad jokes and sarcasm. I watched Witless Protection with the one intention: to have a silly laugh while eating greasy Chinese take away.

Believe it or not, I've always found these retarded redneck flicks kind of funny. But good God, this movie is far from funny, let alone retarded!!! I lasted about 20 minutes. I'm now here typing this. Chinese was delicious, by the way. Thanks for asking! I'm truly amazed how they actually let this go public. Fair enough, the guy is a fat redneck racist. That's none of my business. It is my business however, to at least be surprised when I see him reaching for the microphone so easily. How is it that none of the good Christians - who are so afraid of breasts and wet kisses - find the non-stop racism in Witless Protection to be suitable for over 13 is beyond me! Hypocrisy at it's best, that's what this is.

I'd like to see the reaction when this junk gets a DVD release here in the UK. But then again, does anybody really give a stuff?! I doubt it!

If you're still here reading, for the love of mankind, don't let your kids watch this utter rubbish. Please.
