QUICK TAKE:
Dramedy: As preparations are made for a fashion tycoon's lavish 60th birthday party, flashbacks show how he made his fortune on the backs and misfortunes of others.
PLOT:

Sir Richard McCreadie (STEVE COOGAN) is a British fashion tycoon who made his fortune buying rival companies and driving them into the ground, but not before extracting plenty of money for himself, his now ex-wife, Samantha (ISLA FISHER), or his latest lover, Naomi (SHANINA SHAIK).

They and many others -- including his mother, Margaret (SHIRLEY HENDERSON), reality TV star daughter Lily (SOPHIE COOKSON) and bitter son Finn (ASA BUTTERFIELD) -- have assembled on the Greek isle of Mykonos for his lavish 60th birthday party. Others, such as assistants Melanie (SARAH SOLEMANI) and Amanda (DINITA GOHIL) try to handle the various logistics ranging from hiring musical acts to inviting celebrity guests and even building an amphitheater that will feature an actual live lion for a faux gladiator game.

At the same time, McCreadie's biographer, Nick (DAVID MITCHELL), watches the various attempts by many people trying to appease the tycoon's every wish, no matter how elaborate, while also attempting to remove displaced immigrants who are camped out on a nearby beach.

And as all of that occurs, we see flashbacks to McCreadie's formative years at a boarding school, his ruthless raiding of fashion materials and even rival companies, and him facing a harsh hearing inquiring about his ruthless tactics.

WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?
Older teens and anyone who's a diehard fan of someone in the cast might be interested, but beyond that, it doesn't seem that likely.
WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: R
For pervasive language and brief drug use.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.
