Worst: Riggle and Franco trans and prison rape jokes
For a movie that has so much fun and does so much right for homo-eroitica and bromance tropes -- and even takes aim at hate-speech like "f*ggots" -- Lord and Miller are doing a great disservice assuming that implied prison rape is shameful and funny on its face. They had Rob Riggle and Dave Franco on deck for their cameo and instead do a nonsensically broad spin on Mr. Walters making Eric Molson his "bitch," Franco literally begging for help. Nothing clever comes out of the revelation that Riggle's character has been given a vagina after his junk was shot off in the first movie, and his harassing/adoring Franco actually comes off as offensive, lampooning a man transitioning into a trans woman. It's so confusing and out of place, it's hard to see where the humor there is even supposed to be.
