This movie will offend many people for very good reasons. It has offensive language and speaks to things that some may personally disagree with (which is exactly the point). The message it carries makes it a truly important film for our time. I highly recommend this entertaining work.
The film creatively illustrates why the first amendment is so important, doing so from a perspective that is accessible to most of mainstream society. It doesn't dumb down the content, but by using comedians to illustrate the ideas, I think it has greater potential to click with a demographic that may not tend to give it much thought. It is not an attack on right-wing censorship, although that was arguably the driving force coming against Lenny Bruce's comedy in the 60's. It is a film about censorship in general and why we should support all freedom of speech, even with those whom we disagree. It is about the importance of free expression and a plea for why everyone must be able to exchange ideas (including extremely unpopular ones) in forums that are becoming more and more oppressed. This censoring often happens in the very places you would expect it the least - college campuses.
