What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Swiss Army Man is a very unusual indie dramedy about a man (Paul Dano) stranded on a desert island who befriends a corpse (Daniel Radcliffe, in a decided departure from Harry Potter) and manages to persevere. There's a suicide attempt by hanging, a dead body, a bear attack, broken limbs, some blood, fighting, vomiting, poop, and farting (lots of farting). Characters talk frequently about sex and masturbation, and language is fairly strong in general, with multiple uses of words like "f--k," "s--t," and "retarded." In one scene, the characters get drunk on vodka, with comic repercussions. And, through it all, the movie promotes self-confidence, friendship, and teamwork, albeit in a most uncommon manner.
