Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.

Not worth it.

Thanks for the great common sense media review that totally nails why this movie is terrible. We so wish we would have read this before we rented it! To build on what they said already, the other disappointing part of it was the language. If this was geared for a younger set of kids, they could have deleted the language, the bullies (And the girl who makes a bad choice with the bullies) ,the sexual references with the boss and his girlfriend "Candy," and the language of stupid, idiot. However, they included all this nonsense and made the movie even worse than it was (given the poor acting and low budget special effects). Do not waste your time with the movie.
