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.

Downright offensive

I really regret letting my 13.5 yr old watch this. I’m pretty relaxed about letting him watch movies with language and some inappropriate content. I would have rather had my son see most Rs. It portrayed comments toward women that qualify as harassment, made fun of mentally ill, overweight and gay people, portrayed people mistreating each other in psychological abusive and manipulative ways, and was not even funny!

Great movie for 11+

I think its a great family movie for older kids. Me and my two kids watched it and we will watch it again!

This title has:

Great messages
Great role models
Too much swearing
