We saw a sneak preview and this has to be one of the funniest movies I've ever seen.

And the star's nudity in that breakup scene is just SO gosh dang awkward and SO gosh dang funny it'll just kill you.

When I see an equal amount of female frontal nudity I'll join in on the laughs as well. I don't find a double standard funny.

Male genitalia has been shown in R rated movies for over 30 years but never female genitalia. Movie after movie showing men's genitals all the way back to Mandingo and What Do You Say to a Naked Lady? where we have a man spread eagle with the camera centered on his genitals. If that would have been a female there is no way it would have gotten an R. This is not a double standard but female chauvinism. Let's have 30+ years of vaginas and clitoris or men should boycott movies all together. Let's see how many tickets females will buy to support the chauvinism against men. Basic Instinct showed Sharon Stone's vagina from a distance and got an NC-17. They took out that scene and got an R. Men's genitals in men's movies like Any Given Sunday. LL Cool Jay showing his genitals in this movie and then talking about God in his interviews. Give me a break. Just another male sellout.

JJ is right on the money. The NC-17 rating differs from the R rating in that showing genitalia is suppose to get the NC, butts & boobs are more acceptable to the general public and therefore are shown. As JJ stated, tell me one R movie where female genitalia is shown. Since the male anatomy makes the genitalia more visible its a lot different showing a male and female standing nude from the front. Recent movies such has Walk Hard, Sex In The City, and other R's show male genitalia...female, not on your life. Female's are still on the benefit side of the protection attitudes in nudity in our society. Female reporters in men's locker rooms while they shower. my it's the female reporters right to be there, male reporters in female locker rooms, why the female athelete has her right to privacy, are you crazy. There are still many area's where women still have to fight for equal treatment...this isn't one of them

i think that scene is brilliant, it is exactly how it would go, the only difference is she wouldn't be freaked out that he was nuce because she has been in a 5 year relationship with him.

I think it takes guts to do a scene like that, and Jasons Segal pulled it off amazingly well.

I am quite tired of seeing people display their bodies. In my opinion these people are overpaid exhibitionists.

I prefer movies without any skin at all (female or male) but alas that is next to impossible. I think all of this move nudity has warped our children who now do the same on the internet.

The country is quite a cesspool these days.

I didn't find the wrestling scene in 'Borat' especially jocular.

O.K. here is the truth (IMO); back in the 70s; 80s; and even early 90s women didnt trim or shave their pubes, and we had scores of R rated films with genetalia present (albiet; not shaved n exposed vulvas; in that ur right). Shaved fish on R rated films will never happen; it's just prudish society in action; face it. However, I'll take prudish over brainwashed anyday.

So many women have bought into another corporate, money makin scheme that a women can't be clean without a trim resembling a 12 yr. old; or clean shaven as a babe. WRONG; the only chic I've been with that stunk was a clean shaven one; and shampoo, occasional douche, and daily cleaning will do the trick. However, think about the industry that has boomed since the brainwashing? Salons, products, and girls who just gotta get the wax, and after creme for nasty breakouts, just cause guys are now brainwashed into believing that pubes (which actually give off pheromones, or sex scent) are gross. Damnit, how unmasculine can guys become through corporate feminization!

We are an organization of 200 plus and growing quickly by the day. You can find our home page at www.fighttheMPAA.com .

Our goal is as follows:

We are a grass roots group that is dedicated to banding together to demand that the female vulva is allowed to be exposed equally and as graphically as the MPAA allows the male penis to be shown in mainstream movies.

I agree with the person who said they are sick and tired of seeing anyone naked! I am a female and I don't want to see a naked girl or guy for that matter. I feel that nudity (Unless in a porn) does not change anything. The plot is still the same! Why is it so important to put in almost every movie that comes out. All it does it make me NOT watch it. I will not watch a movie at the theater or in my home with nudity. Even if it's just me and my bf. I feel nudity on film (Unless in a porn) is NOT needed. So if directers want more $$ then I suggest you leave out the nudity and leave a little more the imagination!

if guys want to see naked girls, then why not let girls see naked guys? why do guys worry about size anyway. there is nothing wrong with nudity of either gender. this is AMERICA dude. freedom of speech and all that.

I think nudity of each gender is great and is obviously used for the storyline. However; I do not think female nudity should extend beyond pubic hairs or at least vulva. Let's face it- I do not go to many mainstream movies (or movies period) but I do not think male erections are shown and possibly that would equate to females having to reveal inner parts. I do not think actors take these scenes lightly and if not seen to be a natural thing to the story- would turn down the script.. I hope it does not go beyond where it is at know- leave that for the porn folks !!

The comment on women in locker rooms is a bunch of crap men are not hired as ultrasound techs or people that give mammograms because they dont want women uncomfortable well then why hire women to go in mens locker rooms.When are women going to start fighting for the right to signup for the draft.
