I feel no such conflict about not recommending its sequel.

Caveat Spectator

The movie features a spectacular amount of profanity: ~200 f***s, 50 or so s***s, uncountable amounts of third-tier profanities. Admittedly, the swearing never feels as vulgar as it does in something like The Departed (profanities in the service of comedy never do), but still, it can be a bitter pill to swallow. Characters joke around with a sex toy, make jokes about "Vietnamese Jesus," taser private parts, engage in sexual innuendo-laden fight scenes, and more. Two characters sleep together, but we only see them the next morning; a different character goes on at length about their night together in front of the girl's father. A bunch of dudes get shot. There's the expected amount of gay jokes, though none of them feel mean-spirited.
