R for “adult themes” such as beer pong, whorehouses, and male appendages frozen to telephone poles – because apparently “adult” is a synonym for “juvenile”

It seems at this point like Neil Patrick Harris has better things to do.
Like host every award ceremony ever. Or star in How I Met Your Mother and Sondheim. Or arrange his twins’ playdates with Elton John’s kid. Or – you know – catch a nap, or try out a new recipe, or beat his high score on winterbells.
Not that I have anything against getting high with Kal Penn – if it’s good enough for Barack Obama, it’s good enough for me. But Neil Patrick Harris is a busy man, and I’m not convinced this film belongs on his to-do list.
Although if Smurfs makes the cut, it’s hard to quibble. ~Ben Orlin
