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.

Very good movie to watch as a family

This movie was a great classic to watch with my family although I think there was lots of sex-related humor that kids 11 and younger should not be exposed to. There was lots of violence with guns. Over all I think that this movie would be a great movie to watch if your kids know not to repeat bad words and inappropriate things.

This title has:

Too much sex
Too much swearing
age 14+

Graphic ending!

PG-13: intense sci-fi sequences of action/violence and cursing
