Kudos to all filmmakers who make non studio backed films. 'American Idiots' is definitely meant for those who enjoy the guilty pleasures of raunchy movies. It's not for the faint of heart or for someone who's easily offended by potty humor. Could be a good "date" movie, if you're trying to find out, whether or not your significant other has a funny bone. If you liked 'Waiting,' 'Bruno' or Freddy Got Fingered,' then you'll love this movie!
Parents... You might want to enable the parental controls on this one! This film will most certainly fill-in the holes of your "birds and the bees" chat!
Uptight movie critic snobs... It's not a masterpiece, but it is a great way to forget about your life struggles for a while!
